There is topic about it:

Right, but building an .EXE of your project is no longer possible. From my understanding, the customer needs UiRobot.exe installed that comes with Studio. Then, they can trigger the project through commandline shown in @RJ_Kadari’s reply.

Thanks RJ, Katkon and Clayton…

So overall i understand that we can not create .exe now from uipath project…


#6

I have only community version, so i cannot verify. Are you saying that these steps to create an exe with studio version are not longer supported?


Generate an exe file from UiPath

Hi @Pupina
That is correct. The “Create App” button or EXE compiler was retired a while ago and replaced with “Publish” button which is used to deploy the project into Orchestrator and/or be used with UiRobot.exe which comes with Studio installation. Therefore, you must have Studio installed on the machine to run the robot.

This is from my understanding.

There has been additional ways to run the robot via commandline, which then you can create a batch script to run your robot. However, this still requires that the UiRobot.exe is running on the machine… This also let’s you use the built-in Task Scheduler, even though it’s not supported by UiPath since they provide Orchestrator which is better anyway.

Regards.

Thanks, is there another way to protect your source code?

Hi Sandra,

What version do you have? Please check the Security project considerations available since 2018.1.1 version:

Hi Ovi. I read about that feature. I found it very useful for users. My concern is how a consultant firm can protect their code from clients if they want to to pursue a cheaper price for the client. I am conducting a research for a consultancy company and I do not know how to replace old feature where you can create an exe file and protect your source code. Do you know if there is a way to do that ? Thanks


#13

The possibility to create an exe file was not still available. Is there a new feature that replaces that functionality? If you want to generate an executable, is possible?

Hello Pupina,

I hope everything is great with you.

I am sharing the same concern with you. Could you able to find a solution?

Best,
