I got this error saying “Unable to perform 'SETTEXT' action. PASSWORD_TEXT is read-only or disabled” while using set text action on the password field in a windows application. It is working fine when I am typing the password manually but throwing this error when bot is running.

Please help

Some apps have weird quirks where they disable the password until there is a username/email filled in, you may try tabbing out of the email/username field and see if that sets the password field as editable.

@ajith 2492 , as suggested by Micah tabbing out would be a approach and also you can use the recorder to click the text area and then enter the value using simulate keystrokes
