UiPath Studio Activation v2016.1

When you start UiPath Studio for the first time, the registration window will be displayed, giving the user the options to choose between Start Trial (for evaluation purpose), Activate License or Purchase License.

If you want to try Studio, click Start Trial.

If you own a licensed version, click Activate License.



Automatic activation

This option is recommended when the computer where UiPath Studio is installed has a working Internet connection and is not behind a firewall.

If you activate the Trial version you are required ONLY to add your e-mail address. 


If you want to activate a license, you are required to add it in the License Key field, and add your e-mail address.


Finally, press the Activate button.

Manual activation

This option is used when UiPath Studio is installed on a machine that is not connected to the internet or when your network security software/firewall prevents access to our license validation server.

Follow the steps below for manual activation:
