UiPath extensions help you broaden your automation capabilities to web browsers, Java applications, Silverlight applications, and Citrix Virtual Apps and Desktops, as well as over RDP connections, and more. They enable native detection of UI elements in such environments, so that selectors are properly built. The UiPath extensions can be installed from Studio or the Command Prompt.
Below you find the list of available UiPath extensions and how to install them:
- Citrix - also requires the UiPath Remote Runtime installed on the Citrix Application server.
- Windows Remote Desktop - also requires the UiPath Remote Runtime installed on the Windows servers.
- VMware Horizon - also requires the UiPath Remote Runtime installed on the VMware Horizon Application server.
- UiPath Remote Runtime
- Excel Add-in - only available in the StudioX profile.
In Studio, extensions are located on the Tools page, in the Studio Backstage View. To install an extension from here, simply click on the one you need. A message box then informs you whether or not the extension is successfully installed.
Installing extensions from the Command Prompt is done with the SetupExtensions tool, which is found in the
C:\Program Files\UiPath\Studio\UiPath folder for Enterprise, or the
cd %LocalAppData%\UiPath\app-19.x.x\UiPath folder for Preview. Please note that administrator rights are required to install extensions from the Command Prompt.
