Downlaoded community version of UiPath 18.2.3 version on Windows 10 Pro, does not launch UIPath studio at all. Below is the screenshot of how it looks


When I see the logs it shows 4:54:14:913 => [ERROR] [UiPath.Workflow.Logging.StudioTraceListener] [1] System.IO.FileNotFoundException: Could not find file ‘C:\Users\username\AppData\Local\UiPath\UiStudio.settings’.


  1. Uninstall and reinstall


Have you tried checking what is located in:


I would try creating that file manually, and attempting to relaunch it. (To find it in Windows search for %AppData% in the launch bar, then navigate as needed.)

I would also try launching UIPath with administrative privileges so it has read/write access. (Right click the launch icon, choose “Run as administrator”.)
