UiDemo Walkthrough Assign Problem


My bad, yes you’re correct. I thought you were doing 2 for a second there. :slight_smile: good luck with assignment no 2.


Thanks for the response Bogdan! I have played around with the InitAllSettings.xaml by placing a WriteLine in both the Get Local Settings sequence, and the Try Loading Server Assets sequence, as well as at the end of the entire workflow there. In all cases the Write Line out_Config(“UiPathDemo”).ToString writes out the correct path to the UiDemo.exe. I also tried writing out other names i have in the Settings sheet like, OrchestratorQueueName and UiDemoCredential, and they both were written out correctly. So I’m sure the dictionary is getting loaded with the correct key/values, they just won’t get passed into the InitAllApplications for some reason.

EDIT: In the InitAllApplications, does the in_Config argument need to have a default value or just leave that box blank? If i leave it blank, i get the NullReference when I try to run it. If I try to put a value in there, then the workflow design area turns into an error page - see 2nd screen shot below.


Well, I had some success…
I was under the impression that we should run InitAllApplications as a standalone module for testing, and running that workflow by itself always resulted in the NullReference error. I ended up running the Main.xaml, and all went well; i.e. InitAllApplications was called, the UiDemo.exe app opened credential were entered, the main UiDemo window opened, and then my Orchestrator Queue began emptying out.
That was frustrating! On the other hand, I’ll probably never forget it :wink: And the _Test.xaml is how you test InitAllApplications (not necessarily running the Main.xaml) somehow I missed that part.


On a similar note… I’ve tried this exercise nearly for 5 times… I have still not figured out what goes wrong… UiDemoPath is added onto the config.xlsx file but still… It is not able to figure this path… I also tried hard coding the values… It did show the same as couldn’t load the asset from the location… It had given the complete path as D:\ …\ … \UiDemo.exe.

Am attaching the screen shot of the same… Please help anyone…


UiPath can’t find the UiDemo application so In Orchestrator you have to create this assets

In UiDemoPath i put the path to the UiDemo application that I have to open and I assigned this asset to a robot. This is useful because you can assign to each robot different assets, in this case we could “tell” to different robots to open different applications. If you need more details ask me.


Hi All, I am trying to understand one of the asset from the InitAllSettings.xaml from REFramework Master , i.e., AssetName= row(“Asset”).ToString How to create such asset in orchestrator?

  1. You have to login into https://platform.uipath.com/
  2. Go to assets
  3. Create asset
