Hi @Raluca_Laic, the main purpose is to open a file as simple as that. Maybe I want to open a .doc, .xls, .ppt, .txt, etc. As you said, the required software might not be installed, but the same happens with Start Process in Studio, right?
I can have Microsoft Excel installed as I can have LibreOffice Calc, Free Office, etc. It’s my responsibility as the developer to show a warning (or if UiPath can) to add a validation that says something like this:
"The required software is not installed. Please get a copy of Microsoft Excel."
I have multiple Android apps that if the Play Store is not installed show a warning when a Popup for rating my app is triggered and they don’t have it.
In the end, this is the user responsibility that use the bot that meets the requirements like every piece of software they have. The developer/company set certain requirements, for example:
Source: Hardware and Software Requirements (uipath.com)
The previous pic is the perfect case because If I don’t meet the UiPath requirements, maybe I could sideload it but it might not work as expected, and the organization won’t take any responsibility or might even complain about copyright violations.
