Performing a robot on Windows Virtual Desktop


I’m trying to perform three unattended robots on a virutal machine. I have to connect via a VPN and then login with my credentials for the virtual machine.

I have published the robots into orchestrator as unattended robots.
Added a trigger that the robot has to run once per hour.
Installed the Remoteruntime on the Virtual machine
Installed the windowsvirtualmachine extension in UiPath
I tried it with Login to console on true and False

It goes well for 2 hours but whenever the robot has to run for the third time, i pass the 3 hour mark where my session on the virtual machine ends. After three hours of inactivity it disconnects. I tried the steps above but i ends up with returning me Pending and the next message

  1. Windows process. This job can only run on a windows machine and there is none connected to this folder.

So I keep losing my connection to the VPN/VM and I don’t know why. Can someone assist me on fixing this issue?
