Upgrade the Uipath studio MSI

Here are the UiPathStudio.msi patches with MV3:

Installing the MV3 extensions without upgrading UiPathStudio.msi

  1. Download and extract on the target machine
  2. Make sure that the location where UiPathExtensions_MV3 is deployed is whitelisted for execution
    (all users should be able to read files from that folder, the antivirus should not block it etc.)
    A good location would be: C:\Program Files\UiPath\UiPathExtensions_MV3
  3. From an elevated command prompt run UpgradeBrowserExtensions_MV3.exe to automatically upgrade the Chrome/Edge extensions to MV3.
  4. Or, run the following commands to install the extensions separately from an elevated command prompt:
    SetupExtensions.exe /chrome-enterprise /silent
    SetupExtensions.exe /edge-enterprise /silent
  5. If the client is using the ExtensionInstallForceList Group Policy to manage browser extensions then follow the instructions from here for Chrome and Edge.
