Sometimes, i have uipath Robot Windows to stop process (see attachment)Capture
Sometime, i haven’t

Do you have any solution to stop process when i havent this Windows ?
I don’t want to pass by task manager and kill process


Hi samouuu,

When do you not have the Robot window displayed?

Hello Ovi,

When i launch my robot by command line without launch studio.
This is my command line : “C:\Program Files (x86)\UiPath Studio\UiRobot.exe” /file:“O:\Projet IPA\ASTRO Formulaire\Main.xaml”
Maybe i miss an argument


You can stop it from Robot tray. In order for it to appear, use UiRobot.exe command without any parameters and then UiRobot.exe -file “%HOMEPATH%\Documents\UiPath\test_debugging\Main.xaml” to launch your process.

Here you have arguments details:


I haven’t this folder “C:\Program Files (x86)\UiPath Platform”
This commands don’t work …

What studio version do you have? Doesn’t it work with your path(where the UiRobot.exe is)?

Version : 2016.2.6379

It’s work with my command but Robot windowsis not displayed if i don’t launch studio.exe
UiRobot.exe is in “C:\Program Files (x86)\UiPath Studio\UiRobot.exe””

Yes, in 2016.2 version, the Robot starts when you open Studio. But if you run the UiRobot.exe from command line(or from folder), the tray will be displayed(without Studio, just like in 2017.1 version).
The steps would be:

  • make sure the UiPath Robot service is started
  • run UiRobot.exe command - the Robot tray will appear(without Studio)
  • run your .xaml - the process will appear in Robot tray under Running tab and you can stop it from there


It’s run thanks :slight_smile:
