UIPath on Mac

Is there any way, by which UI Path can be used to automate Mac Desktop applications?
Or any workaround for this?

At least for now, UiPath works only on Windows. You could automate Mac desktop apps if you connect to Mac using a remote desktop program and perform image and keyboard based automation from Windows.

We want to train our consultants, whom all have Macbook pro. Is it already possible to install the trial version?

Hi Hein,

It’s still not possible to install UiPath Platform on MacOS. But you can use a VM with Windows, something like Parallels.

@ovi Hey , could you please tell the procedure in how to install it using the VM parallels as I need to install the UIPath studio in my MAC and all that the website has is a *.msi extension package for the installation of the trial version.
Any help/suggestion Is deeply appreciated .

You can install UiPath on mac using VM but this way you may not be able to automate the MAC apps.

UiPath can only be installed on Windows, so you can install VM on mac first, then windows on it and at last UiPath into the Windows.

@adrian, has already suggested, how you can control the Mac apps via remote desktop.

DO you plan to release a MacOS version of Studio. Our developers all use MacBooks.

The target platform would be WebApps to automate.

I understand startups can’t do everything at once - just trying to get some idea if we can use this platform for our project.

Thanks

It’s Feb 2019. One year since the last post - is there any update on Mac version for Studio? Thanks!

Hi @chaunn

Native support for Mac devises is not our current focus. As mentioned above, you could use image and keyboard automation of a virtualized environment.

I am using Apple bootcamp on my MacBook for UiPath. It provides dual boot option.
Its Safe and very easy to install Windows using Bootcamp :slight_smile:

Hi Adrian. Your great response the Aparna question. Is running parallels on a mac to use windows application exactly what you mean?

I Macbook pro loaded parallel to run window based application while learning but have not attempted to automate apple applications through parallel.

Thanks!

Could also run Uipath on a mac via loading parallels.

Folks,
Thought I would try to explain a bit see if this helps as there seems to be a confusion to the root of this thread…

The thread should be making inferences to operating systems and not hardware architecture e.g. Windows vs iOS

As we all know it publicly, there’s no UiPath solution for IOS. I person hope this is in the works.

Now, using bootcamp, parallel, or a remote desktop session implicitly means you’re going to be work on on the operating system (OS) that you’ll be ended up with, regardless if the hardware/machine architecture is a Mac or PC, as we traditionally refer to them. It is the OS that you ended up running your applications on that matters and not the hardware architecture. Since the current UiPath stack is only being offered for Windows, you’ll need to be on a Windows OS.

Having said that, I would also highlight that a virtual environment, such as Parallels, is really an iOS app that simulates a Windows environment. When you move your focus from the Mac iOS native to the Parallels Windows environment, you’re virtually on a totally different machine.

So, if you’re an iOS centric user, there’s no UiPath for you (at this time).

Hope this helps.
