I uncheck the "Run this program as an administrator" in POD and in the target program - Sifarma (Little window that says Login and "senha" in the images below).

 

I tryed to use the POD Desktop  recorder (with and withou images recognition)  but It didn't recognize the program. I Also tryed in another programs and it worked.

Try this:

 

1) First, launch the desired app with 'Run application' action under System group. In 'Application path' parameter, refer to the .exe file of the app (usually under C:\Program Files\Name of application or Program Files (x86)). It guarantees login window will be focused when you run the flow;

 

2) Then, try to fill the window by 'send keys' actions: login keys, tab, password keys, tab, tab, enter, or maybe using Alt+keys, since buttons appear to have shortcuts (underlined letters)

Hi guys,

Ty for the replies, but both solutions are not working 😕

I think the program has some kind of protection against power automate or others third parties softwares. 

I tried to use a VNC connection and when I use POD in a VNC Viewer the mouse move and mouse click works on the program Sifarma.
