ZipFile issue, requiring to update specific package

Hello Everyone,

Greetings! Happy Holidays! :wink:

Sorry to bother … but I observe that each time I close OpenRPA IDE, then restart again, and run from command line specific workflow, the following error occurs, requiring me to update specific package as can be seen int eh image following:

" … error CS1069: The type name ‘ZipFile’ could not be found in the namespace ‘System.IO.Compression’. This type has been forwarded to assembly ‘System.IO.Compression.FileSystem, Version=, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=b77a5c561934e089’ Consider adding a reference to that assembly."

Hope someone can help …

Massive thanks,

As the description say, you are not suppose to install that.
Zip is already referenced via utilities extension ( is used in the archive activities )

Got it, massive thanks … was able to use that in the activities, but observe have to put a delay for 3 seconds before I envoke a C# code about copy and delete commands. Any alternate way, just like the pure C# code without need of delay method to be called?

Or is there a way to incorporate in C# codes the utilities extensions, to do asynchronous execution of commands?

Invoke Code, but that is not async.
That could probably be made, but is an absolute nightmare to get to work inside workflow foundation. So is not on the roadmap right now.

I created code loop instead that will check if expand archive is done already … else, run sleep(300);
