RPA Foundation - Lesson 8 Practice 1 - where to RDP to - workaround


Hi, the lesson calls for connecting to an RDP session with the ExpenseIt app. Previous Citrix-related videos have referred to this, but so far in my course I have not seen any instructions for connecting to “UiPath - training1.northerneurope.cloudapp.azure.com.” Other videos seem to be from the SAP training, if I recall, and again there doesn’t appear to be any way to connect.

I do see this post https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/azure/virtual-machines/windows/quick-create-portal. I’m sure that will work.

However, I installed AnyDesk and connected to a Windows 10 machine with the resource files installed, and can complete the Lesson 8 exercises that way. I will try to do the same with a Windows XP VM locally, and see if that works.

The reason I’m posting this is because I think maybe other people don’t want to give Microsoft their credit card info for an Azure trial - I don’t.
