Dynamic program launcher

Hi all,
So I would like to show you my component which is now available in UiPath Marketplace


Thanks to it you can find a path to exe file for programs which you have installed on your computer.

The only thing which you need is the name of exe file, for example, if you want to run chrome.exe just enter string or var with chrome (“chrome”) and set StartProgram to True and that’s all.

If you want to get exe file path just set var to LaunchPath and it will get string value with it :smiley:

How does it do all magic?
It’s easy, the component is looking in windows registry (special key) and retrieving from its path to exe file, that’s all :slight_smile:
