UiPath Installation and Upgrade

The UiPath Installation and Upgrade Guide

Update Studio

版本控制模式

Our versioning scheme has a major.minor.patch structure, which works as follows:

  • The major number represents the year the release is delivered in and changes with a major update.
  • The minor number is incremented each time a functionality is added, under the form of a minor update.
  • The patch number is incremented every time a patch containing bug fixes is released.

Important!

If the entire UiPath suite is installed on a single machine, and you want to update from v2018.2 or older versions to v2020.4, you are required to first do so on Orchestrator and then Studio and Robot. If you first update your Studio to v2020.4, your Orchestrator instance is removed. This is due to a change in the installers' Upgrade Code.

这些工件在您首次购买 Studio 时提供,或者也可能由您的客户成功经理或我们的支持团队提供。

更新到主要版本

如果您要从 v2017.1、v2018.1 或 v2018.2 进行更新,请注意所有旧的本地活动包都将丢失了。在更新前,请务必备份。

企业版

You can upgrade a version of Studio activated with an Enterprise license directly to the latest version by simply running the UiPathStudio.msi installer on your machine. None of your settings or projects are lost after doing this.

It is also possible to use UiPathPlatformInstaller.exe to update Studio, as well as Orchestrator and Robot, on the same machine. However, please note that this installer does not accept command line arguments.

Activity Packages

Please keep in mind that, upon upgrade from v2018.2 to higher versions, the activities packages are cumulated in the C:\Program Files (x86)\UiPath\Studio\Packages folder.

If you have projects created with a Studio version prior to v2018.3, and they have dependencies in the %localappdata%/UiPath/Activities folder, add the path as a feed in the Package Manager, so that the projects can reference them.

After updating from a version prior to v2018.3, Studio performs an automatic migration of dependencies when the project is opened. Read more about Dependency Migration as part of the Core Activities Split.

It is not recommended to perform manual changes to NuGet.config or any configuration files, and instead, UI or command-line arguments should be used. However, if manual changes were indeed made to configuration files, it is recommended to back up these files before upgrading to a later Studio version.

📘

Note:

The location of the activity packs has changed from %programdata%\UiPath\Activities in 2016.2 to %localappdata%\UiPath\Activities in 2018.1 and above.

This means that, when updating from 2016.2 to 2018.1, 2018.2, or 2018.3, the activity packs must be reinstalled to work properly. More info can be found in the Managing Activities Packages chapter.

社区版

Due to the auto-update feature of the Community Edition, any Studio activated with a Community license is automatically updated to the latest version when a new version is available on the Stable feed.

If you manually update your Community Edition Studio, the existing UiPath extension for Chrome is removed from your browser. The content of the current UiPath folder from %localappdata%\UiPath installation folder is removed and the setup fails if you previously performed selections with UI Explorer in a Java application. Please note that these issues do not occur if you enable the auto-update feature.

更新到次要版本

根据计算机上激活的许可证类型,更新 UiPath Studio 的方式也不相同。有两种可能的情况:

企业版

This version can be updated by navigating to the UiPath Automation Cloud and downloading the newest version of the UiPath Studio installer (UiPathStudio.msi). Running the installer automatically replaces all the old files without modifying any of your settings.

It is also possible to use UiPathPlatformInstaller.exe to update Studio, as well as Orchestrator and Robot, on the same machine. However, please note that this installer does not accept command line arguments.

Please keep in mind that, upon upgrade from v2018.3 to higher versions, the activities packages are cumulated in the C:\Program Files (x86)\UiPath\Studio\Packages folder.

社区版

The Community Edition is always up to date, as it automatically updates itself as soon as a new version is available, be it Stable or Preview.

You can choose between the two update channels, Stable or Preview, from the HOME Backstage view, in the Help tab or from the Choose an Update Channel window in the activation process.

请注意,一旦您更改您的选择,必须重新启动应用程序才能使更改生效。

If you manually update your Community Edition Studio, the existing UiPath extension for Chrome is removed from your browser. The content of the current UiPath folder from %localappdata%\UiPath installation folder is removed and the setup fails if you previously performed selections with UI Explorer in a Java application. Please note that these issues do not occur if you enable the auto-update feature.
