Just getting started with UiPath Community Edition. Was all going rather well until I hit this issue which I would appreciate some assistance with.
I can run simple stuff like driving browsers, grabbing selector, creating and playing with variables… all just fine and working great. But…
My main area of interest with UiPath is to potentially use it to replace a bunch of ETL jobs which hit simple http Rest APIs which provide a json response body. It seems that I’m struggling at the first hurdle though because when I try to execute the simple http API I get:
17:30:03.0000 => [ERROR] [UiPath.Studio.Shared.Logging.OutputLogger]  Orchestrator HTTP Request: Orchestrator information is not available. Please check if UiPath Robot Service is started.
Which is interesting because the UiPath Robot service is NOT running - in fact it does not even exist. Its is not an installed service. I can see the robot.exe file in the install directory and I can manually start it or call it from Win startup and I can see the icon for it in the system tray. When I hover over the icon in the system tray it tells me that its running UiPath Robot 2019.4.2 and that it is ‘offline’.
However I cannot see the process running in task manager! That seems a bit strange. What I DO have in task manager are:
When I look at the config of the UiPath Robot I see that in the orchestrator settings there are no Orchestrator URLor Machine Key values; they are completely blank.
In an effort to get the UiRobot service up and running I have uninstalled, rebooted and tried all sorts… but the service never appears.
Would appreciate any advice.I should add that I am using Win10 Home Edition - would that matter?
