Installation Everytime

HI All,

I have just Downloaded the CE edition of UIpath and i am facing the same issue. Nither do i have an Icon on desktop to launch UIpath again nor can i find it in in the search menu. once i close the studio i will not be able to launch it again.

Some advise/help here will be highly appreciated!!! else i will have to install it again.

Thanks in advance!!


i have a similar problem.
Everytime i start the application there appears the hint to register the app.

I am facing the same issue .Everytime I have to activate community version ,I am thinking it is some bug or some thing which I missed,

I am new to uipath. I am facing the same issue. Every time I have to run the uipath setup and install it in order to work on it. Someone please help me to know in case I am missing something or doing anything wrong. Thanks.

I got the solution for this issue: -

(1) press ‘window’ key and simultaneously press ‘R’ key.
(2) A small window of ‘Run’ appears of left bottom side.
(3) type ‘%appdata%’ and hit ‘enter’ .
(4) Now Go to folder Appdata >> Local >> UiPath
(5) In ‘UiPath’ folder, there is ‘UiPath Studio’. Create a shortcut of it on desktop.
(6) Now you are good to launch ‘UiPath Studio’ from desktop itself and there is no need to install every time when you want to use it.


Thanks @Deepak11.

I have faced the similar problem.
I have installed the UiPath. Haven’t found it in menu options of windows or in short cuts.
I have exactly followed the steps given by you and it works.

I tried it. I am using windows 7. i could not find appdata folder but found UiPath folder. but there is no UiPath Studio to create the shortcut.
Please help

tried it not working in Windows 10…
Any other suggestion ?

On my Windows 7, I had one earlier version of UiPath but had not used it for almost 2.5 years. Today, I unistalled that and downloaded CE using a new email account of google. After installation, the UiPath Studio opens but there is no shortcut in the windows 7 Start menu. I can see UiPath to be there in the Control Panel. There is no folder for UiPath in C:\Users\ProfileName. Also, there is no AppData folder as well.
There is no UiPath folder in ProgramFiles (x86) or anywhere else.

What can be done to have a proper installation for this?

Hi @Vineet_Dewan

I would suggest following this guide here:

Quick remark - the Enterprise MSI installer installs Studio in the ProgramFiles folder. The community edition folder is different: %userprofile%\AppData\Local\UiPath

Thank you. It worked for me

I’m surprised that in 2019.10 CE also this issue is not solved in 2020.

Such an simple issue of keeping app shortcut on desktop and on Windows 10 menu is not resolved!

Hi @rjkothari

Normally there should be no issue with both Studio and Assistant being placed in the Start menu:

Is this not the case?

Hi @ajaykumarg01

Welcome to our UiPath Forum! :slight_smile:

Could you check with our licensing support at this link to resolve this issue?

It’s not there on Windows. That’s my point. See below.

This is most definitely strange.

Is it maybe an environment with some restrictions as far as modification to the system?

Also, just to confirm - the issue concerns the latest Studio Community installer 20.4.0?

I’m using UiPath Studio CE 2019.10.4 Exe edition on Windows 10 Pro - 64 bit. I downloaded it about 2 weeks back.

Thank you for the solution.
