Cannot access application 'pgmessagehosttext.exe.' Elevated privileges might be required. Try running the UiPath application as an administrator

I’m trying to automate an RDP process. I started UiPath studio as admin on my local machine. From the Studio, I was able to RDP to a remote server, log in to the remote desktop with an account from a different domain. That account has admin right on that remote server. When trying to right click PowerShell there and run as administrator, I go the error message in the title.

So I have

  1. Started UiPathStudio as admin on my local machine.
  2. Used a login account from a different domain with admin right on the remote server.
  3. Ran UiPathRemoteRuntime.exe as admin on the remote server before everything.

When on RDP, using the account I logged in I’m able to access that exe file.

I’ve looked at some other posts such as the following one but couldn’t find any solutions:

Any help is greatly appreciated!!
