If you want follow the UiPath Process Mining courses of the UiPath Academy you need an installation to execute the exercises. There are a few options to set this up, each one with its own risks you should be aware of.
The options are:
- Set up an installation on another server
- Set up a second installation on the same server
A separate installation is preferred. The best performing method is to set up a training installation on a separate server.
As this is a different server, a new license needs to be requested.
A second installation can also be done on the same server as the production environment. Using a second installation on the same server is a way to avoid requesting a new license. However, it does have the downside of sharing server capacity (CPU, RAM, and storage) with the production installation.
Using the production installation is highly discouraged as super admin users can release an application which could overwrite the production application. Also, various other assets are shared between all users on an installation (e.g. datasets, repositories).
A training installation, depending on the number of developers, could take a substantial part of this capacity away from the production installation.
Follow these steps to perform a second installation of UiPath Process Mining.
On the server, create a directory for the training enviroment (e.g.c:\processmining-training).
Create the directory
Place the installation package in the
We will now refer to this directory as
Run the following batch file:

• Enter a name, e.g. processmining-training.
Note: Leave the localhost binding intact. The initial login is only possible on localhost.
In IIS Manager, click on Application Pools.
Update your license file and Git repostiory.
When there is a clean installation on the server, the steps 1 to 6 can be replaced by making a copy of the of the clean installation.
A new installation of UiPath Process Mining is now done.
The new installation of UiPath Process Mining can be accessed from
