Install the robot in VDI


#1

Hello.
We want to install the robot in VDI. But is there any problem running robots or scheduling in the orchestrator?

There is no problem in installing robot in VDI.
However you should be aware of the following:

  1. Make sure you have Back-Office License(Unattended) activated
  2. Many organizations have some periodic VDI reboot mechanism
    This may have conflict with your execution schedules.
  3. When executing activities on VDI, make sure that you have Simulate / Windows messages option enabled.
    This helps the process stability as the actions can work in background.

Will be happy to see this list enhanced further by other members based on their learnings.

We faced frequent problem about missing packages specially during installation of unattended bots.
