Getting error after clicking on Start button

I am new to Katalon and trying to record mobile app functionality. I am getting below error as clicking on the Start button
Note: app is installed on the mobile

I appreciate your help to sort this issue.

Hi @gupta.deepak331,

What appium version are you using?

Btw, If you upgrade appium from v1.8.1. Please follow these manual instruction:

  • Manually remove io.appium.uiautomator2.server.test and appium.uiautomator2.server from your devices.
  • Manually delete folder C://<user_folder>/.katalon/tools/android_sdk and let Katalon download again.


Thanks for reply…
I was using appium 1.13 version. I have unistalled the same trying to install version 1.8.1
After that not able to install either version 1.8,1 or 1.13
Its throwing an error for main.js file that location is not proper.

Hi @gupta.deepak331,

Did you try to manually uninstall ‘io.appium.uiautomator2.server.test’ and ‘io.appium.uiautomator2.server’ from your devices?

Please add this property in Desired Capabilities/Mobile/Android and try again:

appWaitActivity: *

Thanks a lot for your help. Now, I am able to proceed further.
