Error after saving a recording into different name: "Failed to create the part's controls"

issues

#1

Hi, I have a working recording. But when I saved it into a new name, closed it, and re-opened the file, I got this error “Failed to create the part’s controls”. Can anybody help me figure out what went wrong? Thanks.

Scenario:

  1. Saved the recording using a new name (File > Save As)
  2. Closed the file and closed the RPA recorder.
  3. Launch RPA recorder and open the saved recording from step 1 (File > Open File)
  4. Got the error “Failed to create the part’s controls”
  5. I tried reverting to the original name and still the got this error.

Note: I cannot recreate the error with other files. Also, I restarted all components, RPA recorder, and my PC to no avail.

Failed to create the part's controls

@Jerry_Guarino,

You need to copy the entire folder, not a single file:

Then paste it to the parent folder (or to the root rpae_project folder)

Rename the new folder:

And rename the .rpae file to match the folder name
