Can not open application in remote desktop


I’m automating an application which is installed in a remote environment. I’m accessing it with UiPath, installed in another remote environment.

My problem here is I have to open one application and perform several actions and close it down and open another application and perform new actions.

When it comes to open second application it didn’t open and it gives an error messages in uiPath as below.


First I use desktop icon to open second application and it gave me gave error saying that Timeout reached for double click activity.

Therefore I use Run to open that application and now its giving Timeout reached error for send hotkey activity (Win+r).

Appreciate your thoughts on this.

yah this is the perfect method usually used to open a application in the remote machine
use like this

and in the type into activity
add a [K(enter)] atlast like this
"c:/yourapplication filepath[K(enter)]"
and as we have used hotkeys along the string enable SEND WINDOW MESSAGE activity and TRY ONCE
Also increase the TIMEOUT property as 60000 milliseconds (1 min)

kindly try this and let know for any queries or clarification
