UiPath Studio Guide

Installing the UiPath Remote Runtime

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. The Remote Runtime can be set up through the UiPathRemoteRuntime.msi and UiPathPlatformInstaller.exe installers.
It is important that you first deploy the UiPath Remote Runtime component on all your Citrix App servers, and then install the UiPath Citrix extension on the client machine.
Regardless of the installer, perform the following steps:

  1. Contact our Support Team to obtain either UiPathRemoteRuntime.msi or UiPathPlatformInstaller.exe.
  2. Follow the installation wizard to set up 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 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.
