Can't See Existing Flows



I built a flow in Power Automate Desktop in December in my Personal Productivity environment. We now have a virtual machine, and are planning to run this flow in unattended mode on the VM.


I installed Power Automate Desktop on the VM. However, when I sign in, I can't see my flow and receive the following message: “You aren’t permitted to create flows in this environment. Please switch to the default environment or to one of your own environment(s), where you have maker permissions.”


So I can see the flow on my own machine, and can create new flows. However, on the VM (using the same account and environment), I can't see the flow and don't have permission to create new flows.


The only difference I can think of is the Power Automate Desktop version numbers. I'm using a slightly older version on my machine - 2.1.20312.19572 - and it's still in preview mode. The version on the VM is 2.2.20339.22608 and is no longer in preview mode.


Help would be greatly appreciated!


Hi @Anonymous 


Please try upgrading to latest version of PAD and also please disable the firewall on VM machine.


I hope the above will help.


Best Regards.
