Unattended bot not able to communicate with chrome web extension

Hello everyone,

I am facing one problem so hoping someone can help me.

I have unattended bot running on my RDP but for some reason bot is unable to communicate with the chrome web extension.

If I install the UiPath robot in User mode on the same machine, it works with chrome web extension however if I install in service mode, it is not able to communicate with chrome web extension.
I have installed chrome extension from command prompts and ChromeNativeMessaging service does start when I open chrome.

Does anyone have any idea around this?

Thanks in advance,


Check below for your reference

Hope this will help you



I am facing the same issue, the troubleshooting says nothing about unattended robot.

Is there another way to approach this?

Thanks in anticipation.


Hi @jrp

Welcome to UiPath community

Check out the following

  1. Navigate to this via cmd and run it with SetupExtensions.exe /chrome.
  2. Make sure your chrome tabs are closed.
  3. Try a rerun and it will be picking up the chrome page correctly.
