UIACOMWrapper is not working in Wondows Phone 8.1


Iam using UIAComWrapper mainly for windows standalone appliactions.I know that UIAautomation works on Windows Phone also.
I have developed an basic test Exe using UIAComWrapper dll reference and build this exe by VS2012.
When i run this exe in the Win7 ,Win 8 desktop,it runs successfully.

But same exe runs in Windows Handheld Phone , i see an exception System.IO.FileNotFound Exception:Could not load file or assembly UIAComWrapper Vesrion

Attached snapshot document

I have downloaded this UIAComWrapper dll form below url . Version

This basic test exe is a Console application will prompt for license for running completely which works in Desktop and doesn't work in Windows Phone.

Let me know why the exe is not able to found UIAComWrapper dll in Windows phone environment.
Should i recompile my exe with VS 2013?or is there any new version of UIAComWrapper dll which works in Windows Phone.

Hi Jake,

The issue is this UIAComwrapper is not working when we try execute in Windows Phone 8.1 OS.I HAVE ATTACHED SCREENSHOTS DOCUMENT.It always throws exception

However this UIAComWrapper is working in Windows 8 Desktop Operating system but not in Windows Phone 8.1 OS.

Hi Mayur

As I said, this is an OPEN SOURCE project. Michael could no longer maintain it, so I have forked it to GitHub.

Can you provide me with documentation to show that UIA is supported for windows phone 8.1. I did not think it was.

If you can find documentation about if UIA is supported on Windows Phone then I am happy to help you submit a patch to fix the issue.

I am not actively developing this project, but still will maintain the codebase and release new packages if fixes/enhancements are submitted.
