The Device ID is in the Help section
But you dont need to register for the the upgrade if you are already using CE.

Just follow the above mentioned steps post you activate if not already.

@cheersrpa do you get any error after clicking on “Activate”?

Hi,
Studio is not opening after I switched to Beta version from stable. Previously created workflows also not opening.

Thanks!

Hi @Sat

If your Studio does not launch at all, it can be that the download was not completed properly. It can happen if you close your Studio too fast after switching to Beta channel. You could try checking the Beta folder under:
c:\Users\%userprofile%\AppData\Local\UiPath\

If it looks incomplete (as if, the size or number of files drastically differs from the stable release folder), simply delete it and relaunch Studio. It should work then.

When in the timeline is GIT support for version control coming?

Even as a Microsoft shop and with using Azure Devops we use GIT as the middle man. I am using TortoiseGIT but I think others on my team will work better with using studio for everything.

Just in case anyone else is facing the same. I had multiple installs of UiPath on my machine so when I selected Beta it then reverted back to 2018.3.1 and had no option to switch back. As a result I went to add/remove programs to remove all instances of UiPath did the typical clear out of local app data and roaming app data (forgot program data). Then reinstalled using the latest version of the Installer. Opened UiPath but and selected Beta then restarted UiPath Studio but no change so restarted the machine completely and hey presto “Dark Mode” baby.

Wonder how many of the UiPath devs will use dark vs classic @ovi can you do a poll…my guess is 100% Dark :slight_smile:

Couple of lads there do not really fancy the Dark mode, Strange!

I think it’s a matter of personal preference (and maybe the time of the day when a developer works). I am more of a night owl, so Dark Theme all the way :bat: But as Florent said, I can understand some have different software tastes. (this seems like a talk about fashion haha)

Rookie mistake, Rich. We don’t recommend this :slight_smile:

But nice comeback, thanks for sharing, I am sure others have faced the same. :wink:

Well if you built the software properly it would handle multiple installs…also it would clear out the appdata so I don’t have to…automation my ar…m! :smiley:
