Bot in unattended mode

Hi all,
i’ve read this post about the automation via rdp for unattended robot with CE


I’ve not clear if i can run, for testing purpose only, an unattended bot with no user logged in rdp.
Now my situation is:
1)if i run robot through RDP i have no problem
2)if i run robot with RDP minimized i have no problem
3)if i run robot with RDP closed bot don’t find any UI element (timeout reached)
Is possible to fix that with the CE?

Hi @andreus91,

I faced simillar issues, my bot is not able to click certain tab when RDP is closed, It runs when i am running via studio, Orchestrator with RDP session open and even when RDP Is Minimized. But it fails with Ui error - Timeout for a particular tab. So, Instead of Click activity we used Send Hot Key which resolves the issue.

Kindly change from UI Click to Send Hot Key if possible it will resolve the issue.

Thanks for the reply,
obv you used send hot key without selector, otherwise you face the same error, no?
There aren’t any other possibilities, you know if depending only for the license?

Hi @andreus91,

The bot was able to do for almost 90% (Which includes UI Clicks and other kinds of stuff) but it could not for that particular tab alone, So only i changed Click to Send Hot Key for that particular tab.

I am not sure about the licensing aspect of it.

In my case, if i’m not logged in on RDP, all UI element failed with timeout reached.

And i think is a problem of license, but i’m not sure if is that or something about configuration (rdp, orchestrator, ecc…)
