    I have a problem with IE8.  Lets say I have a test with 13 steps, log in, navigate to other page, click some buttons and validate.

    Sometimes execution is fine but most of the time I get this error:

    Failure Information: 
    Unable to locate element. Details: Attempting to find [Html] element using 
    Find logic 
     (Html): [id 'Exact' ctl00_DefaultContent_LabelFLOverview] AND [tagname 'Exact' span]

    Unable to locate element. Search failed!

    Are there some alternative ways to finding, locating elements and activating them?

    Hi Eyjolfur,
         "Unable to locate element" is an error which you'll encounter occasionally while doing UI automation of Web apps. Troubleshooting it requires looking in the specific context of your app and the way that Test Studio is trying to locate the missing element (its Find Logic). Check out the following article:

    Let me know if you require additional assistance with this.
