How to lauch an Automation with Robot when not connect to Orchestrator?

I want to launch the PRA on computer without installing Studio or connecting to Orchestrator. I have read the Robot User Guide. Automation Projects when Not Connected to Orchestrator
This Guide mentioned two folders. But my %ProgramData%\UiPath\Packages is empty. Could someone tell which subfolders or files should be in this folder? And how to launch PRA then?

Thank you in advance.


this feature is removed in latest releases

if you have standalone orchestrator setup then you cna use it…

also the folders under it are the unpacked packages…so when you download or run aprocess the files are automatically unpacked here


Hello @Li_Eric

  1. Publish Process:
  • Publish your UiPath project to generate a .nupkg file.
  1. Copy to Packages Folder:
  • Copy the published package to %ProgramData%\UiPath\Packages.
  1. Run UiPath Robot:
  • Use UiRobot.exe in the UiPath installation directory to execute the process.

bashCopy code

UiRobot.exe -file “C:\ProgramData\UiPath\Packages\YourPackage.1.0.0.nupkg”

Replace "YourPackage.1.0.0.nupkg" with your actual package name.
4. Considerations:

  • Customize command-line arguments for input data if needed.

Thanks & Cheers!!!

Thank you Kartheek_Battu and Anil_G.
Except Command Line, can I run the automation by Assistant?


If you have offline orchestrator then you can connect it and run automations from assistant as well.Assistant displays the local processes also
