UiPath: Community, Enterprise & Installers

Can you help me with my query in my another comment on installation?


Hello Swati
It’s asking you that as you are initiating the instance from the download location; initiate the instance from App data/ uipath/ location and it won’t.
Additionally any package which you install from “manage package” on the right hand side of the screen in studio of community edition also will disappear if you keep on initiating the instance from the download location.


I am trying to install community edition of UI Path 2018.2 but while activating using “Start Free” i am getting Activation Error →
(Activation failed with error: 0
Error description: Cannot use Community Edition on this machine after activating a trial or Enterprise license code. Please enter a valid license key.
License status: Device ID already activated

Device ID: ********
Computer: ********
User Name: ******)

When i tried in other server also facing the same issue with same error message and i am getting same device id’s in both the scenario.
Any Suggession?

Hello Ovi,

I am new in UP Path; please help me with below queries

What is the difference between “UiPathStudioSetup.exe” and “UiPathPlatformInstaller.exe”?
The size of exe file is 112MB and 284MB respectively.

Can you please tell me which file should I use to get it install?

Also, can you please suggest some study material for beginner?

Thanks & Regards,


Hey @swapnilw
Check this link out. will answer you queries.


Hi Nadim,

Thanks for your reply.

Actually I am beginner hence not understand it completely but I think after getting some knowledge of UI Path I will get that point, anyway thanks once again for your response



Hi @swapnilw

The UiPathStudioSetup.exe is the Community Edition, the free version of Studio.

The UiPathPlatformInstaller.exe is what it used to be UiPathPlatform.msi. It is the Enterprise version and it also comes with the installer for Orchestrator. This is to be used only large companies.

There is a nice side-by-side comparison here: UiPath

Hope it’s more clear now :slight_smile:


Hi Ovi,

Thanks a lot!

Yes, it’s clear now.:smile:

Can you please also suggest me some study material for beginner?

Thanks & Regards,
