After installing RPA.Assistant within Visual Studio for use with Robot Framework 2 of my existing libraries (ApplicationLibrary.DesktopLibrary, RPA.Windows ) showed errors when running. I have removed RPA.Assistant as I don’t have a direct need for it right now.
I have managed to resolve the error with ApplicationLibrary.DesktopLibrary by pip reinstalling, I think the installer used an earlier version of selenium. (see below)
Installing collected packages: selenium
Attempting uninstall: selenium
Found existing installation: selenium 4.11.2
Successfully uninstalled selenium-4.11.2
ERROR: pip’s dependency resolver does not currently take into account all the packages that are installed. This behaviour is the source of the following dependency conflicts.
rpaframework 18.0.0 requires rpaframework-core<11.0.0,>=10.0.1, but you have rpaframework-core 11.0.5 which is incompatible.

RPA.Windows unfortunately still has a problem -:
"Error in file ‘C:\RobotFramework\Tests\xxxxx.robot’ on line 21: Importing library ‘RPA.Windows’ failed: ImportError: cannot import name ‘is_numeric’ from ‘RPA.core.windows.helpers’ (c:\users\administrator\appdata\local\programs\python\python39\lib\site-packages\RPA\core\windows\helpers.py)

Any help would be much appreciated.
