General Queries about PiP functionality (Picture in Picture)

What is necessary to activate PiP on a Machine? Is there a solution to allow multiple PiP sessions with different users on one machine? Is there a way to close the PiP session automatically after the job is finished?

  1. What is necessary to activate PiP on a Machine?
    • Admin rights are needed to enable the Picture-in-Picture feature.
    • Windows 8 or 10 (Pro or Enterprise edition).
  2. Is there a solution to allow multiple PiP sessions with different users on one machine?
    • No, only one PIP session can be active at one time, for any user on a machine. This is limited by windows. The only operation UiPAth does for enabling PiP is executing this Windows API function
      • if there is a Windows server machine and there are multiple users on a single WINDOWS SERVER - it's not possible
      • if there is a Windows server machine with a pool of Windows machines that customer provides to users - it is possible
  3. Is there a way to close the PiP session automatically after the job is finished?
    • No, it used to automatically close but UiPath removed that to encourage user to interact freely with his PIP window
