Automating download through an application on a remote computer

Hi there,
I have a computer in field that is connected to an instrument that runs a Numaview application. Every day in the morning I download the data through the app dashboard. I was wondering if you could assist me in deciding whether UIVision can assist me in doing this automatically.

The steps I follow are:

  1. Log into the remote field computer to access the app dashboard
    2.the dashboard is generally open - click on a few buttons (options to choose what parameters to download)
  2. enter filename as text entry for download
  3. Download and send it to cloud - Google Drive/ Dropbox - anything basically.

I am happy to get rid of the first step and have a .BAT file run directly on the field computer to carry out steps 2 to 4 every morning 7 am.
Is this possible please and could you help me in understanding where to start?

Thanks very much - Ayushi


Kantu and Powershell do work quite well together and as Powershell can do everything cmd can do, you should be able to run it.

You can run a Kantu script from a JASON file by right-clicking the Kantu script in Kantu from Powershell. With that JASON file you can run a Kantu script from Powershell using the following command: & '(Chrome.exe location)' 'file:///(Kantu JASON Location)?direct=1'

Then you could use a .Bat script to task manager launch your Powershell script which launches and runs your Kantu script.

Kantu should be able to do steps 2 and 3 just fine I believe.

I hope that helps.

P.s. In order to run Powershell from task manager, rund the following code in a .Bat file:
start Powershell.exe -executionpolicy remotesigned -File "(Powershell script location)"

Alternatively to what @Adam suggested, the other option is to do everything visually on your local computer. So you log in e. g. via Teamviewer, RDP or Anydesk, and then UI.Vision RPA automates the remote computer via Teamviewer with the XClick and XType commands.

But if you can run UI.Vision on the remote computer, that will be easier and more reliable.

No need for the .bat file, you can launchPowerShell direct:

powershell.exe -ExecutionPolicy Bypass -noprofile "C:\Users\Path\File.ps1"
