Flow works fine in PAD but fails when launched from Cloud flow

Hi all,


I'm trying to run a Power Automate Desktop flow from a Cloud Flow using the "Run a flow build with Power Automate Desktop" action. The flow works fine when launched from PAD, but when launched from a cloud flow I get the following error code: "UIAutomationClickFailedError"

The flow starts up correctly, launching an app but fails on the first "Click on UI element" action.   


Anyone have any idea on how to solve this?
