What’s New


New Icons for UiPath Assistant and Process Execution

Starting with this release, the icons of the UiPath Assistant and those used for process execution have changed in order to provide a more refreshed and intuitive visual experience when working with our product. They are also easier to identify on different operating system themes.

The new Icons are:

System Tray

  • connectedconnected - when the connection is established.

  • disconnecteddisconnected - when not connected.

  • connection_errorconnection_error - when an error is encountered, such as the UiPath Robot service being stopped.

  • warningwarning - when there are new or unread notifications.


  • searchsearch - UiPath Assistant

  • searchsearch - Running Process

  • searchsearch - Running Process in PIP

New .MSI Installer Options

When you install using the .msi installer, a screen now prompts you to choose what to install at the beginning of the installation process. The installation is configured based on your choice, and you no longer need to use the advanced options of the installer to manually select the products you want to install.

You can select one of the following:

  • Studio - Installs UiPath Studio, Assistant, and the user-mode Robot for creating and testing automations.

  • Assistant - Installs UiPath Assistant and the user-mode Robot for running attended automations.

  • Unattended Robot - Installs the service-mode Robot for running scheduled unattended automations (via Orchestrator) and UiPath Assistant for troubleshooting.
