How to Use UiPath Studio on Mac


DISCLAIMER: UiPath Studio is built on Windows Workflow Foundation and requires Microsoft Windows to run. Thus, it is not possible to natively run UiPath Studio on Mac OS X based systems.


That said, some UiPath clients use Studio on a Mac utilizing the following solutions. Please use them at your own discretion.*


1. Dual boot

With a Dual boot solution, the Mac has both OS X and Windows installed, allowing either operating system to be executed. Switching from one to another requires a reboot.


2. Remote desktop virtualization

Remote desktop virtualization solutions operate in a client/server computing environment. Application execution takes place on a remote operating system which communicates with the local client device over a network using a remote display protocol through which the user interacts with applications. All applications and data used remain on the remote system with only display, keyboard, and mouse information communicated with the local Mac device.


Popular Remote desktop solutions include:

Popular virtual machine technologies include:
