Installing the Windows Remote Desktop Extension

By installing the UiPath Windows Remote Desktop extension you are capable of natively generating selectors over RDP connections. It can be installed from Studio or the Command Prompt.

To allow native RDP automation, you also need to deploy the UiPath Remote Runtime component on your Remote Desktop machine, as explained on this page. The UiPathRemoteRuntime.msi installer is obtained by requesting it here.

From UiPath Studio

  1. Access the Tools page from the Studio Backstage View. The extensions you can install become visible.
  2. Click the Windows Remote Desktop Extension button. A confirmation dialog box is displayed.
  3. Restart your active RDP connection for the changes to take effect. The UiPath Windows Remote Desktop extension is now installed.

From the Command Prompt

  1. Click the Windows Start button and type cmd in the search field.
  2. Right click on Command Prompt and run it as administrator.
  3. Change the directory to the UiPath installation folder (cd C:\Program Files (x86)\UiPath\Studio\UiPath).
  4. Use the SetupExtensions /RdpClient command to install the extension. A confirmation dialog box is displayed.
  5. Restart your active RDP connection for the changes to take effect. The UiPath Windows Remote Desktop extension is now installed.
