It works fine when I run the test normally, but when I'm running in headless mode, I'm getting the error below:

Is there a way around this?

    I would try doing a Repair on TestComplete. If that doesn't help, then contact Support directly. Here's the link:

    Headless is without drawing UI content, but you seem to be interacting with the Open dialog, which requires to the draw the UI. I also think, that headless requires using XPath expressions and CSS selectors.

    There may be a driver, which allows you to upload and save files via headless.
