How to connect remote machines

I am unable to perform action on RDP as UI elements are not detecting thru activities. I need this to be done thru RDP only and I cannot install UI-studio client on remote instances.please advise me.

Hi @ks185332,

Use Citrix recording for remote machines.

@lakshman, I have an application on remote server where I need to do automate on that application. So as you said using citrix recording will help this to automate. Will clicks and keystrokes are work on remote machine ?. I need to read the data thru CSV file and enters that data into application. Is it works on RDP.


Is that CSV file is on local machine or remote machine ?

@lakshman that is on local machine

Hello there,

Welcome to Uipath community Forum.
Yes you can automate click and keystrokes will work on RDP.
CSvV in local even better for the automation. :slight_smile:
Please go through the following training material or you can join UIPath training academy for free to achieve your requirement.

@ddpadil when i run wolr flow i am getting this error image

I used an activity called Open Application to open the desktop application. given the .exe file path
but getting this error please advise.

Looks like error from application not from UiPath .
you mean to say application in local system or application in rdp?
if it local use Start Process activity and pass full .exe path.
