Release date: 28th February 2019

Improvements

UIAutomation

You asked, we delivered! One of the main improvements brought by the v18.4.4 UIAutomation package is the support for UIA selectors in Edge.

Setup

For those that work offline, we have some good news: you can disable the default online feeds for Robot during the deployment process. This facilitates a seamless installation process even in restrictive environments without Internet access, from the command line. For more information, access this page.

Moreover, you can now configure the location of your automation processes, for Studio and Robot, through the command line of the UiPathStudio.msi installer. This feature provides a customizable architecture to suit both strict deployments and hotseat scenarios. To read more about the newly added PACKAGES_FOLDER parameter and how to use it in your mass-deployment of Robots, see this page.

In addition to that, the UiPathStudio.msi installer enables you to easily set up your Citrix client extension with just a few clicks, as described here. If the command line is more of your thing, that's also now possible, as explained here.

Last but not least, you can now add your own activity feeds at install-time by using UiPathStudio.msi's command line. More information about the CUSTOM_NUGET_FEEDS argument and how to use it to set up your environment can be found here.

To ensure an even better integration between Azure and Orchestrator, it is now possible to include the local activity feed in your Azure environment directly at install-time, using the newly added activitiesPackagePath parameter. To support this feature, you should also know that we added an archive, UiPathActivities.zip, with all the activities in UiPathOrchestrator.zip. To view more information on how to use this parameter, see this page.

You might be happy to know that you can use UiPathPlatformInstaller.exe to set up UiPath Remote Runtime in the Citrix environment of your choosing. More information on this is available here.

UiPathPlatformInstaller.exe now also includes the Russian language, contributing to an immersive experience from the first click.

Setup

  • To ensure a smooth experience in offline environments, the list of activity dependencies has been updated in all our installers. Please note that as a result, the size of the artifacts has increased.
