RPA Express 1.2.0 is rolled out!

Hi everyone,

RPA Express 1.2.0 is out and has some exciting updates!

New features are centered around recorder variables and variable actions:

New Variable actions:

  • Number Format enables conversions of number values to/from string values;
  • Date Format enables conversions of date/time values to/from string values using different formats;

Changes in working with recorder variables:

  • Updated recorder variables panel;
  • Variable name validation;
  • All changes in variables are saved automatically (no need to press Enter);
  • Changes in variable name are automatically reflected in all related actions in the action flow;
  • The list of recorder variables has been moved to the recording file.

We would really appreciate your feedback on these updates, especially the new variables actions.

Do I need to put the registration details on the website if I want to download the new version?


How do we update to 1.1.20 from 1.1.19. When i checked for updates in RPA Recorder, the updates were not available.


No, just use the download link in the email that was sent to you when you registered for RPAEpress - it will download the new version.

I just added a short guide on how to upgrade to original post.

Karan, all your recordings are still available after the update, and you can publish them back to Control Tower if you need. You can read how to do it in the Known Issues part of the release notes: https://kb.workfusion.com/display/RPAe/Sunbird+1.2.0

The recordings are located at C:\Users\%username%\workfusion-workspace\rpae_project folder, which is not changed during the update.


When I press run after I have unfold the file - nothing happens. Anyone else experience that? and what to do. I have tried restarting, reinstalling and so on several times…

the downloaded version is 1.2.0 in the version file.

Now I have tried to sign up again and get a new email and that did not work either.

Hi Janus, do I understand correctly that nothing happens when you start the installer .exe file?
