How can I get the UiPath.Cryptography.Activities package in UiPath Studio?


I am trying to get the Community Activities into UiPath from their GitHub page. I am in way over my head. I am unable to find any documentation on this. It seems you have to create a NuGet package to do so. I have attempted this in Visual Studios but i get an error when I go to publish. I just need the Cryptography activities since it is no longer available in package manager by default. Does any one have a step by step on this or can simply point me in the right direction to just get the NuGet package?

Hi @Jcircuit13

You can use the UiPath.Cryptography.Activities Package. It is available

Hi @kumar.varun2

That was my initial though too! However that doesn’t show up for me.

Hey @Jcircuit13,

Check your feed is the url in that feed mentioned are checked.


it seems to be correct. I am able to see some of the other packages that are listed on UiPath’s documentation that are said to be listed in there official repo.

Try also to add these sources in Manage Packages

unfortunately still no luck after adding those additional sources.

Create a Windows-Legacy process and try it there.

That worked! Can you explain the difference between Windows and Windows-Legacy?

In simple words:

Windows-Legacy → it is a 32-bit Windows executable XAML. Uses .NET Framework 4.6.1. the compatibility used in releases prior to 2021.10. This is the default option.
Windows → it is a 64-bit Windows executable XAML. Uses .NET 6 (in Studio 2021.10.6 and later versions) or .NET 5 (in Studio 2021.10 versions prior to 2021.10.6) with Windows support.
Cross - Platform → it is a 64-bit Windows executable XAML with no platform dependency (will run on Windows 64-bit and Linux 64-bit). Uses .NET 6 (in Studio 2021.10.6 and later versions) or .NET 5 (in Studio 2021.10 versions prior to 2021.10.6) with cross-platform support.

More details can be found here About Automation Projects

Important note:

Studio 2022.10 will be the last release to support the creation of projects with the Windows-legacy compatibility. In Studio 2023.4, you will be able to create Windows or cross-platform projects, and only open and edit Windows-legacy projects created in previous versions of Studio. A migration tool will be available starting with Studio 2022.10 to allow you to convert Windows-legacy projects to the Windows compatibility.

Reference: Deprecation timeline

Thank you for all that info it was very helpful! So does that mean once windows legacy is no longer available none of the packages like the one I was having issues finding ( UiPath.Cryptography.Activities) will be available to use?

I assume until then or after that, we will migrate all the UiPath activities to be compatible only with Windows and/or Cross-Platform.
