Error when adding Controls to Windows Form in Pega Robotics Studio
Hi I just started working with Robotic Studio and doing the course. When I add controls to a Windows Form I get the error 'Could not get reference to OpenSpan.Dynamicmembers.Extentions.IExtentionTypeService'. I added a snip of the error.
I cannot find any information on this error and how to get rid of it.
I've never seen this error before. I suggest that you open an SR with support as it appears you need someone who can look at your machine. If you do open an SR, please post the SR number here for tracking purposes.
The following article will be help you in creating an SR-

I am seeing this problem when I create a new, empty project and add a Windows Form as my first item in the project. Then I add a control to the form. Does this behavior happen in every scenario? or is there something specific that you are doing to recreate it?
I was able to get rid of the error by adding an Automation Item to my project.
I see the issue with Version 14.0.25420.1 (8.0.1053.0). But I tried two different downloads. One is the product that was shipped through the software request and the other one came from the Robotics Architect Training currently available. Both installations behave the same even on different environments and different Windows versions. Could a Microsoft hotfix cause this issue?
