A local license is required

I tried to use the attach window to activiate a software, but the above message was received

@anson

good news!

I recreated your error (not intentionally). We are now officially in “the same boat”. Did you recently install/uninstall UiPath on your machine?

-will follow up once I figure out how to fix it :slight_smile:

@anson are you using enterprise or community?

if you open a command prompt and enter:

"C:\Program Files (x86)\UiPath\Studio\UiPath\Regutil.exe" get-info

what do you see? If your license shows up please dont post it without covering the numbers!

I am newbie, just installed the programme in my pc and try to run the demo. how could I know I am using enterprise or community license?

no worries you are most likely using community. It IS possible to be connected locally using a community edition, in 19.10 that option is available in the installation screen. Regutil.exe would also allow you to register after install, but you can also connect your robot to the Orchestrator to consume a license. This method is typically more straightforward.

Could you please:

Open UiPath Robot

Right click on the Ui icon in the system tray
image

Click Orchestrator Settings
image

If you are connected and licensed to the Orchestraor your screen will look like this.
