RPA Express installation on windows server 2008 R2

Hi Team,

We have to automate an application which is on Windows Server 2008 R2, but to access this application we need to login through Citrix Receiver. For Development purpose we want to install RPA Express on the mentioned server, but as per the system requirement shared on KB, we can’t install RPA express on Windows Server 2008 R2. Is there a workaround for the above-mentioned problem?

Thanks,

Hi @kiran.talreja
I think you can approach this 2 ways:

  1. You can try and install RPA Express on 2008 R2 server to automate the application, but we don’t officially support this OS and can’t guarantee the tool will work correctly there.
  2. You can install RPAExpress on another machine, and in the automation script connect to the Windows Server 2008 R2 via RDS and automate the application on the remote machine using mouse actions with images and key combinations.

Hi @ashapkina

Thanks for your response. Will try installing RPA express on 2008 R2 server.

Thanks,
