hi @Ankitvarshney

to run the bot using batch file the command will be:

@ECHO OFF
(your UiRobot location) by default its (C:\Program Files (x86)\UiPath\Studio\UiRobot.exe)” -file “(your nupkg location of the bot created when you publish the bot)”
pause

I hope it will work.

Cheers :grinning:

Hi Achal

I tried
start “” /min “C:\Users\ankit\AppData\Local\UiPath\app-19.8.0\AgentDesktop\AgentDesktop.exe” /file:“C:\ProgramData\UiPath\Packages\DemoLaunch.1.0.1.nupkg”

But only Robot launches and File is not running
:frowning:

@Ankitvarshney Try this.
This is better than bat.

Or try write the bat like this:
“C:\Users\luca.souza\AppData\Local\UiPath\app-19.8.0\UiRobot.exe” -file “C:\Users\luca.souza\Documents\UiPath\ConversorBinario\Main.xaml”

@lucasimaque Hey Man,
Need one more help. The process i am running on my system .Now i need to run it on my boss system.How to do that.

Should i install UI studio in his system and copy xaml file into his uipath.

@Ankitvarshney
I have this problem too.
But my robots run on a virtual machine with a uipath community version installed. And my files are on a local network and this virtual machine can access my robots.

This is the way I found to make it works, tell me if you found another or better way, please haha.

By sytem i mean VM only​:grimacing::grimacing:
Is there a way my boss can run it from his vm or something😁

If I understand correctly, you only need to install the uipath community on the VM and the robot files must also be on the VM. And bat or vbs need and be executed on the VM too.

Hey Lucas,

I am not able to open a shared drive:(

Put this in a notebook and save with .vbs
You just need to change the WORKFLOW PATH with the path of your xaml or jason.

Option Explicit

Dim WORKFLOW_PATH
WORKFLOW_PATH = “Insert your workflow”

Dim uiPathFolder
Dim user
Dim objFSO
Dim folder
Dim objRE
Dim uiRobotPath
Dim oShell
Dim objShell
Set objFSO = CreateObject(“Scripting.FileSystemObject”)
Set objRE = New RegExp
Set objShell = WScript.CreateObject (“WScript.shell”)

With objRE
.Pattern = “\d+.\d+.\d+”
.IgnoreCase = True
.Global = False
End With

uiPathFolder = “C:\Users” + CreateObject(“WScript.Network”).UserName + “\AppData\Local\UiPath”

For Each folder In objFSO.GetFolder(uiPathFolder).SubFolders
If objRE.Test(folder) Then
uiRobotPath = folder.Path + “\UiRobot.exe”
End If
Next

objShell.Run “”+ uiRobotPath +" -file " + WORKFLOW_PATH + “”
