About the SetupExtensions Tool

The SetupExtensions tool is a command line utility which is used to install, remove, or repair the UiPath extensions.

The Command Prompt is best used to install extensions in large-scale deployments of Robots. Doing so from Studio only installs them locally.

Note:

Administrator rights are required to install extensions from the Command Prompt.
