Scheduled desktop flow works when tested but stops in the middle the next day when on a schedule

Hello Everyone,

 

I have created a desktop flow to delete a connection from live Excel sheet  and save the file in a specified folder on a daily basis to create a data dump. When it is tested manually, the flow runs successfully but the very next day when it runs automatically , it stops mid-process.

 

It would be really great if someone could guide me through solving this issue!!

I changed the screen size and put time lag of 3 seconds  before and after the function, and It is working.

 

Thank you.

Hello Andres, Do you know any solution for this problem. Some of my sources state that microsoft would implement a solution with the may update. But has yet been solve in my knowlege. Best regards John Mark.

Hello Sherigar, Do you have an oportunity to share a screenshot of your actions. The action "Set screen resolution" has no funtionality for me. Best regards John Mark.

For information: We ran our desktop flow to the virtuel machine via gateways.
