Appium v.1.8.1 is not suitable for Katalon V. 6.1.1


Hi There,

I have just downloaded the new Katalon Version 6.1.1 and it can not start any android app.

WebBrowser works fine.

I have deleted my Nodejs and downloaded again and tryed to install the appium 1.12.1 and the 1.8.1

Error log:

04-11-2019 12:28:06 PM startApplication(appPath, false, STOP_ON_FAILURE)

Elapsed time: 0,359s

com.kms.katalon.core.exception.StepFailedException: Unable to start app at: ‘D:\Users\mabdella\Katalon Studio\Projects\MobileTest\androidapp\AndroidApp.apk’

can u please help

Hi every one i could resolve the issue by starting every thing over. Node.js re installed and appium as well …


@mariamtamer91 The appPath incorrect, please check again


Hi Alice, no the path is correct, the issue is came after installing the new version of Katalon.


@Chris_Trevarthen could you please help me in this?


Hi @mariamtamer91,

Someone just had a very similar error message and I wonder if you’re seeing the same thing:

Try that out and if it doesn’t work, we can investigate further,



@mariamtamer91 please make sure installed appium 1.8.1 for windown and then uninstall at device two apps: io.appium.uiautomator2.server and io.appium.uiautomator2.server.test. Try your test again
