We do not have the opportunity to us automated_deployment_engine to deploy robots. So we need to know

how to get the standalone installers for the robots.

 

 

Question:

How can we get the standalone installers for the robots ?

Environment:
UIM 8.51robot 7.91
Answer:


The steps to access the standalone  installers are as follows:

1. In IM or Admin Console, go to the Archive, and download the required robot package.
2. Deploy this package *to your primary hub.* This is regardless of what OS your primary hub is.

The result of deploying the robot package to the primary hub is that it will update the native installers which are located on the primary hub and which are used by ADE.

If you have the ADE probe on any other hubs, deploy the robot package to those hubs as well. This will enable those ADE probes to use the robot installer.

If you need to access the native installers directly, they will now be located on the Primary Hub in the Nimsoft root folder under \Nimsoft\Install\Setup, which is the same location the ADE probe retrieves the installers from. Deploying the robot package puts the new installers into this location, overwriting previous versions.

This also updates the http://(primary uim hub) webpage which contains links to the installers as well.

You can move the installer for your respective OS and run it locally. On windows just execute the nimsoft-robot*.exe.

On Unix plattforms us the nimldr utility.
