Kindly verify the variables you are using. Seems you are using a System Variable $System:AAInstallationPath$  like output directory. 

Please post here the bot actions you are using.

Hi @Jason 9607 

Sounds weird. Does exist the folder LOG under the path C:\Program Files\Automation Anywhere\Bot Agent  ? If not, create it and test again.

@Raul Jaimes My App doesn’t Impact path from Automation Anywhere folder without running bots, but with running bots It’s cannot open and affect to Automation Anywhere folder, Because I want open app with same directory (D:\...) not with Automation Anywhere folder (C:\...) , can you have idea?

Im not sure why your app is openning that path.  For now:

1.- Probably the application is trying to create a even log file in a non-existent folder “LOG” under C:\Program Files\Automation Anywhere\Bot Agent. Try create the folder LOG and check the content of the event log file.

2.-Seems the program is placed on  D:\ (D:\CustomProgram.cs)  and it is invoked by some compiler. Add some line in your code to create a test file without set a path explicit

 

Let me know the result.
