I’ve been using robotcorp’s RPA.Desktop library to automate some excel exports from a Citrix VM. I have access to a Windows Azure VM, through which I access the Citrix Workspace. I have mostly been using image matching to click on UI elements, and this works quite well running from the Robot
The problem is that while it works fine if I leave it running on my computer in the Robocorp Lab IDE, it does not work if I close out the VM. This feature looked like the perfect solution: https://robocorp.com/docs/robocorp-cloud/robot-workforce/setting-up-windows-rdp#installation
I was able to set it up, and it seems to start up okay, but it doesn’t properly find UI elements by their image. I set it up to take screenshots on exceptions, and some of them came out black - not sure what’s going on with it.
I wrote the robot in python if that makes a difference. Is there anyway to see a traceback from exceptions or printed statements? And does anyone know if the Remote Desktop Wake-Up feature works with image matching?
