    As long as the mapping is unique, what you have now should be fine. If the object name changes, as it can on a web page, then you would use a wildcard to address it.

    • Put a breakpoint before the line with the failure and step through to see what's happening in each step.

    Personally I don't like those Index, ObjectGroupId and other properties that you used to map the window. They seem to me to be not stable and thus I would try to find some set of unique and stable identifiers for mapped objects.
