The UiPath Remote Runtime component is required to establish the connection between an application or desktop server and a corresponding UiPath extension installed on a client machine. This way, selectors are natively generated on the client machine where Studio is installed, without having to rely on OCR and image recognition activities.

Product Details

The UiPath Remote Runtime component is required to establish the connection between an application or desktop server and a corresponding UiPath extension installed on a client machine. This way, selectors are natively generated on the client machine where Studio is installed, without having to rely on OCR and image recognition activities.

You can install the UiPath Remote Runtime component as follows:

  • On Citrix App and Desktop servers - communicates with the UiPath extension for Citrix.
  • On Windows Remote Desktop machines - communicates with the UiPath Windows Remote Desktop extension.

Please note that the corresponding UiPath extensions need to be installed on the client machine from the UiPath Studio

The UiPathRemoteRuntime.msi installer is included in UiPathPlatformInstaller.exe, or you can obtain it by contacting our Support Team. Please note that UiPathPlatformInstaller.exe does not support command line arguments.

For the installation guidelines you can consult the UiPath Remote Runtime.

After the installation, you can create processes to automate on Citrix Virtual Apps and Desktops, as well as over RDP connections just as you would on a standard machine. Because of the corresponding extensions, OCR and Image recognition activities are no longer required to properly identify UI elements. Instead, elements are natively recognized and can be used with any activity.
