Hi All,

I am also facing the same issue.
Also when i am trying to run workfusion studio its giving “Java was started but returned exit code=1”.

@asheeqoJmGJDIF @alexandru_colh please send the logs from C:\Users\user\AppData\Local\Temp, that start with WorkFusion_RPA_Express%_ and have .log extension.

@suryansh_sdLbS when does the error appear, when you click RPA Express icon on the desktop?

@alexandru_colh @asheeqoJmGJDIF how did you update to 2.0? Did you uninstall the previous version and then install 2.0 or did you use the Update option in the installer?

@suryansh_sdLbS these logs are from April. Did you update to version 2.0 after that? If you did, did you uninstall the previous version and then install 2.0 or did you use the Update button?

I updated to the new version directly

@alexandru_colh this might have caused the issue. Update option is available when you update from one of 2.0 versions to a newer one. You will be able to use it for further updates. Sorry for confusion.

Now please try this:

  • uninstall RPA Express
  • check if the folder C:\RPAExpress has been deleted. If it hasn’t - delete it manually
  • restart the computer
  • install RPA Express

This should resolve the issue. Please let me know if this does or doesn’t work.

Will I still have the Bots that I created ?

do you mean additional bots that you created during the installation or the recordings that you made?

recordings from the previous version that I had

Yes, you will. Your workspace is not affected during the uninstall, so all your recording will be kept.

I uninstalled the Software, deleted the folder from the C driver, restarted the system. But now when trying to re-install, the installation file gives and error message “Failed to Read Configuration”

I fixed it, just downloaded the file for installation once again :slight_smile:
