Automating Rinkt Robot installation

In this sample, the activity will automate the Rinkt Automate Robot installer by clicking on the ‘Next’ button using the Mouse activity, then wait until the ‘Finish’ button becomes available and enabled, before we finialise the installation by clicking on the ‘Finish’ button.


Please ensure that you change the File Path to a valid path on your desktop.

The variable ‘Number of Attempts’ is set to 1 for ‘Get Details’ activity on the ‘Finish’ button. This ensures that the activity checks the enabled state of the ‘Finish’ button only once before retrying.
