Hi all,

The Folder Exists function appears to have changed subtly from version 10 to version 11.

Under BPA 10, all of these tests result in varExists = Yes
Under BPA 11, the same is true, except when the varDirectory = \\servername\automate

Please note that both the directory C:\Temp and the unc share \\servername\automate exist and are accessible by the user running the task.

Is this intentional behaviour or a bug?

This issue is hampering our migration to Automate 11, as I really don't want to have to trawl through all of our workflows checking every folder exists test for trailing '\'s
Can you please confirm whether this is a bug or intentional behavior, and if it's a bug, whether it's likely to be resolved in the near future?

Hello Craig,

I am unable to reproduce your issue in version 11.

Would it be possible to set-up a GoToAssist session where we can take a closer look at this issue? If this is possible please send an email over to AutoMate.Support@helpsystems.com with a list of your availability.

Note: Please reference this forum thread in your email.
