UiPath Studio Guide

Installing the UiPath Remote Runtime

Before you install the UiPath Citrix extension on the client machine you need to deploy the UiPath Remote Runtime component on all your Citrix App servers. The UiPathRemoteRuntime.msi installer is obtained by contacting our Support Team.

The UiPath Remote Runtime component is required to establish the connection between the Citrix App server and the UiPath Citrix Extension on the client machine. In order to install it, you need to do the following:

  1. Contact our Support Team to obtain the UiPathRemoteRuntime.msi installer.
  2. Install the UiPath Remote Runtime on the Citrix servers on which you want to create your automation projects.
  3. Log off from the current Citrix window session on the client machine and log back in. This is required so that your changes take effect.
  4. Install the UiPath Citrix extension as explained on this page.

You can now create processes to automate on Citrix XenApp environments just as you would on a standard machine. Because of the corresponding extension, OCR and Image recognition activities are no longer required to properly identify UI elements. Instead, elements are natively recognized and can be used with any activity.

You can still use the Citrix Image automation as before. Moreover, processes created with OCR and Image recognition activities are not affected by the Citrix XenApp support.
