  • UiPathStudioCloud.msi - Obtained after purchasing UiPath Automation Cloud.
  • UiPathStudioOnPremTrial.msi - Obtained as part of a trial of the on-premises UiPath Platform.
  • UiPathStudioCloudTrial.msi - Obtained as part of a trial of UiPath Automation Cloud.

A 32-bit version is also available and can only be installed on 32-bit operating systems. For the 32-bit version, -x86 is appended to the file name.

Note:

If you are running the installer to update from an older version:

  • Use the 64-bit version of the installer (UiPathStudio.msi) to update existing 32-bit installations on 64-bit operating systems.
