Community Edition Issue renewing free license

Scenario: I have been using the community edition since last year, renewing every couple of months. But as of today my attempt to renew gets an Activation Error: License Status: Product Inactive

NOTE: I have visited, the device id and email are correct and I click the button and it says my license has been updated, please restart Uipath Studio Community, but when I do I still get the error below.

Steps to reproduce: Open Uipath, click on Get Free License, fill in my email address and click Activate

Current Behavior:

Activation failed with error: 0
Error description: No Error
License status: Product Inactive

Device ID: 0nR6ygD7nHtiEEqi5H1+
User Name:

Expected Behavior: To get a free license key and continue using Uipath

Studio/Robot/Orchestrator Version:

Last stable behavior:
Last stable version:
OS Version: Windows 10 Pro, Version 1703 (creator’s update), OS Build 15063.540
Others if Relevant: (workflow, logs, .net version, service pack, etc):

This is the same problem as the following thread:

should work now. sorry for the inconvenience.

Yes it worked. Thank you Badita.

Thank you very much! Worked for me as well.

I have just encountered kinda the same issue… Also tried to renew the license.
Running on a AWS virtual machine, if that matters. No Trial have been installed prior to this.

Activation failed with error: 0
Error description: No Error
License status: Device ID already activated, trial not allowed after code activation

@badita, do you have any good ideas?

badita having this issue with my aws machine as well. Need to install.

Could you please check

Device ID

Hi Ahmed,

Checked your device ID and it appears there are 7 licenses on this one. This means you cannot use the CE. Please request the 2017.1 Trial: Enterprise RPA Platform Trial - Automation Software | UiPath

You will receive the download link and Trial code on email.


It seems like AWS generates the same device id for multiple instances.

We don’t have 7 machines running anything.

Do you know of any way to ensure a unique device id on AMazon?

I think as long as the machine is not cloned, the Device ID will be unique.

Hi, I have an issue with CE, as below


Can you please support?

Hi MariOla,

It seems the CE license has expred. Please follow this link in order to renew: UiPath

The think is that I’m not able to do that:

Does it work with other browser?

Ovi, upon a lot of research seems like if the machine is instantiated using one of the standard images that AWS provides they have the same Device ID. Seems like wemay have been able to find one that works for now.

That’s great, Ahmed, i’m glad that you’ve sorted it out. :slight_smile:


My colleague is having trouble renewing the free license for his UiPath Studio Community edition. He follows the steps but keeps getting this error on clicking activate in the UiPath registration dialog.


Can someone assist with a resolution? We have already tried uninstalling and reinstalling UiStudio community edition using a new download from the UiPath site.



Have you renewed your CE? It’s explained in this topic, some posts above:


I am having the same issue. I entered the site provided to renew the community license but it still says I need to renew my license. I tried uninstalling and installing the Community Edition again but it did not work.

Did you previously have installed the Trial version? - meaning the .msi file?
