Hi guys, I am QA and trying integrate the Appium into my pet-project in the first time, I trying to click on the Next button programmatically using appium library. This button should brings me to the next screen, but nothing happens. Please, take a look at the code, will you have any ideas about why it doesn’t work, Thanks)

I discussed with familiar developer, and he said that Next button is located in the different activity named AppConfiguratorActivity.
So, when I switch to this activity (AppConfiguratorActivity) and tried click on the Next button, I receive error:
