I have an issue where PAD at random gives me this error: Argument 'BrowserInstance' must be 'Web browser instance'
It can be both after either attaching to or starting a new browser.
But for this specific issue, it's just when I open the Chrome browser, navigate to a website and then I want PAD to click a button - and it's just about 50/50 whether I get this issue or not at this point.
PAD is executing unattended on a VM, and I have been wondering if it can be caused by a lack of resources? Is this a common error?
Does anybody know why this happens at random and what I can do to bulletproof this?
Thanks for your comment. I've tried that, and it usually bugs out as well, sadly.
It's hard to say, but maybe that solutions helps the error-rate up a bit from 50/50 to 40/60. None of my fail-safes has been bulletproof, as of now I'm having it close the browser, open a new instance and try the script again (which still fails).
I was hoping that there was something I've overseen in PAD - do you experience the same error commonly?
Hi, I had the similar issue while launching the New chrome browser instance and that got resolved after I have uninstalled and installed back the Microsoft power desktop extension. See if that works for you as well.
Did you ever find a solution that works? This is happening to me constantly. Sometimes it hangs after opening the browser. With error handling set to continue on error after timeout, I then get the 'BrowserInstance must be Web browser instance' error.
