SAP bridge connection error - Error waiting for window content (from SAP client)

Hi All,


I have a wait for window content step that is waiting for picked field from the SAP GUI to appear. It works...


However, now that I've expanded the data being searched in SAP to much more, it errors out after about 3-4 minutes with this error even though my timeout is set to 15 minutes (that timeout I specify in Power Automate step clearly isn't the one that is being hit).


Any advice? I was surprised to see specific SAP hooks apparently in the PAD engine... FWIW, in SAP I'm using PAD to automate table exports from the SE16N transaction.
