Unable to check/uncheck Excel Add-ins

In my Power Automate Desktop flow, I need to run Excel and load an Excel Add-in as part of the flow. I was able to add the UI elements associated with the Add-ins window, including the checkbox element. I use the "Set checkbox state in window" action to try and load a specific add-in. On execution of the flow I get no errors, but the checkbox does not get checked and thus the Add-in does not load.

I have tried by building the flow actions myself and also by using the Desktop Recorder. I get the same result, the checkbox does not get set. Any guidance would be greatly appreciated.

Hi @PentaGalDad77 

 

I tried the same, and changed the state of the check box from the default of unchecked to checked it didn't update.  However, you can use a space to update check boxes in real life, so I simply sent the space key and it checked OK.
