Trial version activation makes no sense

It is unbelievable how there is no guidance towards the simple license activation when launching Studio for the first time.
Even for a new, but quite computer-literate user:

  • I clicked on “Try UiPath Free”

  • I signed up

  • I confirmed my email address

  • I downloaded the provided installation kit from Cloud UiPath (UiPathStudioSetup.exe).

  • I launched UiPath Studio

  • Copied the machine key I found for a default machine created in Cloud

  • Pasted it in Studio’s activation window (along with my workstation’s name and the Cloud URL)

  • AND got an error “Robot doesn’t exist”

Again, it is incredible how no email guidance is ensured for a new user trying UiPath for free …
This could be a trivial example of a failed end-to-end test scenario / business scenario:
“No support / guidelines offered to New user.”

Thank you. I had already done it myself intuitively.

My point is:

  • I could resume the entire post / article on activating Studio Community Edition in about 5 sentences.
    Including the text from all the link references in the post.

  • This should be an intuitive step a new user should manage on its own for prompt first-time access to his new Studio trial …
