Depending on your organization’s security policies, you may face various issues, such as your security settings blocking the loading of all unzipped Google Chrome extensions. Therefore, the Selenium session cannot be opened successfully.

Issue: The error message Error loading extension: Failed to load extension from: […] is displayed while starting the Chrome driver.

Solution: Complete the following steps:

  1. From …\Composer\Activities\AM.Core.Activities.[X.X.X], open Core.AutomationLibraries.SeleniumWrapper2.dll.config in a text editor.

  2. Change the value of the key use_automation_extension to false and save your changes.
  3. Restart RPA Designer. The error should no longer appear and you should now be able to open Chrome, because the Chrome driver will not try to load the automation extension with your updated settings.
