UI robot not working

Hello,

Im new here, i recently created an automation process running in ui path, running it on the run command works, i have read somewhere you can run it at the command line, i followed that tutorial and its just run a command on the “AppData\Local\UiPath\app-18.2.3” folder. I tried it but nothing happens.

Digging deeper, i have generated the report logs using the UIPath.DiagTool application. Here it the event log

TimeCreated: 9/26/2018 5:41:10 PM
Level: Error
Second instance TrayClientStart Personal\ledikari\

any idea how to resolve this?

@ledikari Follow below link

I found no UIPATH robot service on the services.msc, i tired to run robot at command prompt nothing happens. Do note that i can run the robot at the UIPath Studio with F5

Hi @ledikari,

If you are using community edition you can find UiRobot here

C:\Users\WindowUserName\AppData\Local\UiPath\app-18.3.0-beta0001

Run UiRobot.exe application and then you will be able to see UiPath Robot in System Tray

Thanks,

i am using the community edition but i dont see any

app-18.3.0-beta0001

folder, i only see

app-18.3.0

No problem that is because I am using beta version and I mentioned same in example.

Go to app-18.3.0 and start UiRobot.exe

Thanks,
Prankur

started to run

UiRobot.exe

nothing happened, checked the services.msc, I found no UIRobot

You have to run the application

After this you will see this in system tray

Yeah i see that icon on the system tray, its showing but running a xaml on the command prompt is doing nothing, If i run it on the UIPath Studio using F5 it runs.

C:\Users%USERNAME%\AppData\Local\UiPath\app-18.2.3\UiRobot.exe -file “C:\Users%USERNAME%\Documents\UiPath\Test\test.xaml”

it just there, doing nothing.

You have to reach till the main directory where robot.exe is located CD command before running it

It worked flawlessly

that’s exactly what i did, and it is doing nothing, just waiting.

Never tried but just wanna check have you published your project atleast once.

This is what the documentation says,
As of 2018.2, workflows started with this command only work if you had published the containing project at least once beforehand and if the associated project.json file is inside the project folder.

Ref: https://robot.uipath.com/docs/arguments-description

@Rammohan91 - There is no need to publish the project. You just need to run the xaml file locally from UiRobot. It works perfectly. But @ledikari is not able to run even when following correct steps.

Yup true @PrankurJoshi, I just gave a try from my end and it did worked. In that case the documentation seems to be wrong then :thinking:
