Hi All,<br> I have a question regarding an issue I'm getting sometimes:<br> <br> I have several tasks that are scheduled to run approximately every 2-3 min apart (the time could be less but if so, they queue in order to run 1 single task at time)<br> <br> Every task opens a web browser and generically extract a table and put it on an excel file, then close the browser and that's it.<br> <br> After every task, or in case on task error, Automate runs a task to &quot;end&quot; all browser processes (I use Mozilla Firefox, so firefox.exe), excel.exe and wait until those processes stop running.<br> <br> The problem is that every now and then, a few tasks fail with the error message:<br> <strong>&quot;Automation object could not be created&quot;</strong><br> <br> I read that this may be caused due the fact that when the task tries to open the browser, it finds the previous browser session not properly ended.<br> <br> I am wondering if you know some procedure or a workaround to prevent this to happen.<br> <br> Thank you in advance for your help<br> <br> Gabriele<br> <br> 1.&#160;&#160; &#160;Automate Desktop 2022 v22.1.0.64<br> 2.&#160;&#160; &#160;Windows Server 2012 R2<br> 3.&#160;&#160; &#160;Automation object could not be created

This is an issue that has also been a plague for our browser-based automations. The only workaround we have to is to continually re-run the automation until it runs successfully :(
