Unable to open Word File

Hi [[community] Hope you all are fine!

I had installed WPS(Word, PowerPoint, Spreadsheet), a package containing these three sub packages. Now I had a UiPath process in which I have to access an Word file which opens using WPS. Its extension is .docx. But UiPath shows error: you must have Word installed. Please let me know does UiPath supports only MS Office suite?

Yes you will have to have Word installed to use the word activities. I suggest you use “Open Application” and use the user interface to automate.


Hello @Rohith_Shastri
MS office will be required for this activity.
