PLEASE DO NOT REPLY UNLESS YOU HAVE SUCCESSFULLY RUN JOBS USING COMMUNITY EDITION ORCHESTRATOR AND COMMUNITY EDITION UIPATH STUDIO!!!

Hello…I am trying to use Orchestrator Community Edition (platform.uipath.com) to schedule a robot process (UiPath Studio Community Edition) on a very vanilla Windows Virtual Machine with no security whatsoever. The robot and orchestrator can communicate (as I see when robot is connected and disconnected). However I am unable to run ANY job whatsoever due to the error: Executor start process failed, reason System.UnauthorizedAccessException: Access is denied.

I also had to create a Windows Scheduled Task just to start UiRobot (as a background process) because otherwise, it’s not running and thus will not communicate with Orchestrator. When started manually by launching UiRobot.exe via command line, I get an error message “Cannot act as user ROBOT. Make sure UiRobot is running as a service!”. There is no documentation that I can find on explicitly setting up UiPath Orchestrator Community Edition with a UiPath Community Edition robot-if you have first-hand knowledge, please share! :slight_smile:

I am an experienced technician so it’s nothing obvious.
MY QUESTION: What steps and configuration are necessary to get Orchestrator CE running an interactive session robot with UiPath Robot Community Edition? Again, please do not speculate: it would be most helpful for replies with first-hand knowledge!

Thanks!
