Question

In recent days we have had problems with the A360 tool trying to identify elements with technology type MS_ACTIVE_ACCESSIBILITY (e.g. Excel, Outlook, Notepad, etc.), this has not allowed us to execute previously identified elements (Throwing exceptions related to not finding the elements), in addition to not allowing us to identify new elements.

 

We have tried to identify elements with the same bot user but on different VM and it works fine, so we believe the issue is at the VM level

 

Has anyone experienced a similar problem?

Please follow the below steps

 

  1. Open the Start Menu and search for Command Prompt.
  2. Right-click it and choose to Run as administrator
  3. Type regsvr32.exe oleacc.dll  and hit Enter.

  1. Open File Explorer and type %windir%\SysWoW64 in the address bar. The 32-bit Command Prompt executable is located in this folder.
  2. Right-click on the cmd.exe file and choose to Run as administrator. A 32-bit elevated Command Prompt instance is opened.
  3. Execute the regsvr32.exe oleacc.dll command as explained above. The file is now registered and a confirmation dialog is displayed
  4. Restart the machine once the above step is performed.
