Microsoft Update Broke Automation

The error I am getting is the following:

 

Failed to assume control of Chrome (Communication with browser failed. Try reloading extension).

 

Microsoft.Flow.RPA.Desktop.Modules.SDK.ActionException: Failed to assume control of Chrome (Communication with browser failed. Try reloading extension). ---> Microsoft.Flow.RPA.Desktop.UIAutomation.WebAutomation.Core.Browser.WebBrowserException: Exception of type 'Microsoft.Flow.RPA.Desktop.UIAutomation.WebAutomation.Core.Browser.WebBrowserException' was thrown.

After updating Windows to the latest version my automation is no longer able to assume control of Chrome or other browsers. I have uninstalled and reinstalled both the extension as well as the app itself. I used the same automation successfully prior to doing the update. Not sure what exactly the issue is.

 

The action that is failing is to open chrome followed by a "wait". It does in fact open Chrome to the web page designated in the action however it does not move on to the next task, times out, and then throws this error.

 

Any input is appreciated.

That is a known issue with Windows 11 22H2. Revert back to the previous version of Windows 11.
