About the UI Automation activity package

The UI Automation activity package contains all the basic activities used for creating automation projects.

Important: Automation processes that use UI Automation activities cannot run under a locked screen.
Note:
  • Starting with v2020.10, the UI Automation Next package has been deprecated and the existing UI Automation package has been expanded to include all the modern features previously available in UI Automation Next. You are also able to install the unified UI Automation activity package even on Studio versions 2020.4.1 and lower. This displays all the classic and modern activities in the activities pane. Read more about the Modern Design Experience.
  • Starting with UiPath.UIAutomation.Activities v19.11, all Abbyy related activities have been moved to a separate package. Install the UiPath.Abbyy.Activities package if you want to use its activities for OCR, Cloud OCR, classification, and data extraction.

These activities enable the robots to:

  • Simulate human interaction, such as performing mouse and keyboard commands or typing and extracting text, for basic UI automation.
  • Use technologies such as OCR or Image recognition to perform Image and Text Automation.
  • Create triggers based on UI behavior, thus enabling the Robot to execute certain actions when specific events occur on a machine.
  • Perform browser interaction and window manipulation.
Note:

The UiPath.Vision dependency package includes third-party libraries. These external dependencies are used exclusively for the purpose of enabling the implementation of specific activities in the UiPath.UIAutomation.Activities package.

Here are some examples:

  • AbbyyOnlineSdk.dll - used exclusively in the Abbyy Cloud OCR activity, at run-time, as a wrapper over the Abbyy online service calls.
  • Interop.FREngine.v11.dll - used exclusively in the Abbyy OCR activity, at run-time, as a wrapper over the Abby FineReader Engine calls.
  • Interop.MODI.dll - used exclusively in the Microsoft OCR activity, at run-time, when executed on a Windows 7 or Windows Server machine.

As of v2018.3, the UiPath.Core.Activities package was split into the UI Automation and System packages. Find out more about the Core Activities Split.

Particular scenarios might require management of strict UI Automation dependencies versions. For example, a language for the Tesseract OCR engine must be manually installed per UiPath.Vision version. This means that for processes using that language you need to use the corresponding UI Automation activity package. You can find out more on this page.

The UI Automation activity package contains the following internally-developed dependencies:

  • UiPath.Vision - enables the functionality of OCR and Computer Vision engines.
  • UiPath - an essential library for UI Automation activities.
