  • 1.  Start Browser function Failing

    Posted Tue June 27, 2023 11:26 AM

    I am working with the RPA Trial, I had my script running fine then over the weekend something happened that caused it to fail at the start browser function. 

    The error I am getting is the following:  Error executing command at line 1: webStart --name "Google Chrome" --type "Chrome" --userprofilepreferences "AutomationOptimized" --downloadpath "C:\\Users\\EricShirley\\AppData\\Local\\IBM Robotic Process Automation\\packages\\"
        Fail to start Chrome navigator

    I have seen a few different solutions that I have tried ( Install a different chrome driver and make sure the path is right).

    It was working on Friday of last week, I came in yesterday and tried to execute the script and it fails, any suggestions?

    So after some more digging I realize I did't have the app included at the end of the file path...
    This solved it for one test run and now same thing is happening

    Hello Eric, 

    This happened to me when the version of Google Chrome used by IBMA RPA becomes outdated with the one used by the system.

    Try copying everything from C:\Program Files\Google\Chrome\Application to C:\Program Files (x86)\Google\Chrome\Application
