A Step-by-Step Guide to Installing UiPath

UiPath is a popular RPA tool, used by startups to multinational corporations to automate a variety of tasks. So, if you follow the steps below, you should be able to download and install UiPath on Windows without any problems. I started with UiPath before delving into other RPA tools. Let’s get this party started.

Before I explain how to proceed with UiPath installation, let me first go over the prerequisites for the installation.

 Pre-requisites

The following prerequisites must be met before installing UiPath on your system:

  • You must have at least 8GB of RAM.
  • You must have Windows 7 or later installed.
  • In case your system runs Windows OS in a language other than English, then install the corresponding language pack for .NET framework
  • Browser automation with web browsers [Internet Explorer, Google Chrome, Mozilla Firefox, and Microsoft Edge are supported browsers]

What are the Editions that UiPath Offers?

The different editions that UiPath offers are as follows:

  1. Community edition and
  2. Enterprise edition.

Community Edition

This edition is intended for individual developers, small teams, education, and training purposes who are just getting started with automation. Individuals and small and medium-sized businesses can use the UiPath Platform for direct business purposes with a Community Account. Large businesses, on the other hand, only consider their suitability for internal business requirements and non-profit purposes.

Enterprise Edition

Enterprise edition is further subdivided into three types, which are as follows:

Individual enterprise developers who want to experiment with UiPath Studio can use the Enterprise Studio.

Enterprise Cloud: Deployment of the entire RPA enterprise platform in the cloud for any size business.

Enterprise Server: An on-premises deployment of an entire enterprise automation platform for large businesses.

UiPath Studio Community vs Enterprise

All UiPath Studio versions have the same development capabilities. There are, however, a few subtle differences between the UiPath Studio Community and Enterprise editions. I’ve listed them all below.

  1. UiPath Studio CE does not require a trial period. It is always available for free.
  2. UiPath Studio Enterprise has a free trial period of 60 days, after which it must be licensed for a fee.
  3. With the Community Edition, you are always forced to upgrade to the most recent UiPath Studio release. The Enterprise Edition does not require any upgrades.

To install UiPath community edition

  1. Go to UiPath website.
  2. Click on the button “Try UiPath Free
  3. It should take you to UiPath account  platform to either register or login.
  4. Register with any of the options. For me, i will use register with Email option. Put in your details and click continue.
  5. UiPath will prompt you to verify your email and the interesting thing is it is automated. As soon as you verify, you are good to go.
  6. Fill in your details.
  7. Create your cloud organization. Your organization is an Automation Cloud workspace where you can invite, manage, and collaborate with other members of your team or company.

  8. It open your cloud account and where you can download UiPath for installation.
  9. After download, install the software.
