TLDR - Trying to run unattended robot using ‘Community Edition’ … with no luck
We’ve recently started using UiPath, running some simple robots using UiRobot.exe and a xaml file.
Note: We installed the Community Edition ‘UiPathStudioSetup.exe’.
Everything worked as expected so long as we we’re logged onto the machine running the robot (i.e. attended).
If we disconnect from an RDP session the robot ‘times out’ …
RemoteException wrapping UiPath.Core.ElementOperationException: Timeout reached. ---> RemoteException wrapping System.Runtime.InteropServices.COMException: Timeout reached
After reading the docs again …
We re-installed (using ‘UiPathStudio.msi’) to get the UiRobot windows service (by default running as SYSTEMACCOUNT)
… BUT we’re getting the same behaviour.
We’ve also tried running the UiRobot windows service as an admin account but we get a different error
Exception: Could not start executor. A required privilege is not held by the client. (Exception from HRESULT: 0x80070522)
NOTE: We’ve checked and the admin user has the following (as per docs)
- Access this computer from the network
- Allow log on locally
- Allow log on through Remote Desktop Services
According to docs ‘Community Edition’ can run 1 unattended robot.
Or have we misunderstood this ?
Has anyone got this working or can point us in the direction of the bit of docs we’ve overlooked ?
Thanks in advance
