Extension for Microsoft Remote Desktop and Apps

Installing the extension

By installing the UiPath® Extension for Microsoft Remote Desktop and Apps you are capable of natively generating selectors over RDP connections. It can be installed per-user (from Studio or the Command Prompt) or per-system (from the Command Prompt and Studio Installer).

From UiPath Studio

  1. Open UiPath Studio.
  2. Navigate to Home > Tools > UiPath Extensions.
  3. Select Microsoft Remote Desktop and Apps > Install. A confirmation dialog box is displayed.
  4. Restart your active RDP connection for the changes to take effect.
  5. The UiPath Extension for Windows Remote Desktop is now installed and is located at C:\ProgramData\UiPath\UiPath.Common\.

From the Command Prompt

  1. Select 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 per user, or the SetupExtensions /RdpClientGlobal command to install the extension per system. A confirmation dialog box is displayed.
  5. Restart your active RDP connection for the changes to take effect.
  6. The UiPath Extension for Windows Remote Desktop is now installed.
To generate native selectors over RDP connections, you also need to deploy the UiPath Remote Runtime component on the Remote Desktop machine, as explained on this page. The UiPathRemoteRuntime.msi installer is obtained by requesting it here.
