UiPath Studio Download & Install
Interested in learning robotic process automation (RPA)? Or perhaps you’re seeing UiPath Associate certification?
Regardless of your motivation, if you want to get up to speed with UiPath, you’ll need to download and install UiPath Studio. It’s the foundation of the RPA giant’s low-code development platform.
UiPath Studio Download Link
You won’t find a link to download UiPath Studio on the public site. You must first register for a UiPath account, after which you log into the UiPath Automation Hub, and a link to download Studio is presented to you.
UiPath Studio Community vs Enterprise
In terms of UiPath development capabilities, all UiPath Studio versions are the same. However, there are are few, less obvious differences between UiPath Studio Community and Enterprise editions. They are:
- There is no trial needed for UiPath Studio CE. It is always free.
- UiPath Studio Enterprise has a 60 day trial, but after that must be licensed for a fee.
- You are forced to always upgrade to the latest UiPath Studio release with the Community Edition. Upgrades are not required on the Enterprise Edition.
After the UiPath Studio executable completes its download, follow the installation wizard, which simply connects to the UiPath Cloud with your credentials, and then asks if you wish to install UiPath Studio Pro, UiPath Studio, or UiPath StudioX. To learn UiPath Studio, or to study for the UiPath Associate Certification exam, choose the non-pro, UiPath Studio option.
Note that the May 2021 UiPath Associate Exam update is geared towards version 20.8 of UiPath Studio, which is no longer available with a community license. Fortunately, the two versions are so similar, the use of version UiPath Studio 21.4 will not have a negative impact on your studies. However, if you are persnickety about the use of 20.8, register for a trial enterprise license and download an older UiPath Studio version before the 60 day trial expires.
When the installation completes, create a new process and develop a simple UiPath Hello World program. When the RPA app compiles and runs, you can be confident that you have downloaded and installed UiPath Studio successfully.
