UiPath extensions help you broaden your automation capabilities to web browsers, Java applications, Silverlight applications, and Citrix Virtual Apps and Desktops, as well as over RDP connections. They enable native detection of UI elements in such environments, so that selectors are properly built. The UiPath extensions can be installed from Studio or the Command Prompt.
Below you find the list of available UiPath extensions and how to install them:
- Edge (Experimental)
- Windows Remote Desktop
- UiPath Remote Runtime
Please note that for creating automation projects for Citrix Virtual Apps and Desktops and over RDP connections, you need to install the UiPath Remote Runtime on all your Citrix or Windows servers, as well as the Citrix or Windows Remote Desktop extension on the client machine.
In StudioX, extensions are located on the Tools page, in the Backstage View. To install an extension from here, simply click on the one you need. A message box then informs you whether or not the extension is successfully installed.
Installing extensions from the Command Prompt is done with the SetupExtensions tool, which is found in the
C:\Program Files (x86)\UiPath\Studio\UiPath folder. Please note that administrator rights are required to install extensions from the Command Prompt.
