Configuring post-installation settings

After you finish installing the Control Room, configure specific items to ensure timely Automation Anywhere communications.

Post-installation tasks and settings

Exclude anti-virus
Exclude anti-virus scans from running in the Automation Anywhere local repository because they interfere with running bots.

By default, the repository path is C:\ProgramData\AutomationAnywhere\Server Files. If you have modified the repository path after installation, you can verify the path from Administration > Settings > Control Room database & software.

Set the language locale
Select your language as the region setting.

The following example uses English (United States) as the region setting.

  • Windows: Select Control Panel > Region > Administrative > Change system locale.
    For usernames that contain non-ASCII characters, update the following settings:
    1. From Control Panel > Clock and Region > Administrative > Change system locale, select the required language from the Current system locale list.
    2. If available, clear the Beta: Use Unicode UTF-8 for worldwide language support check box.
    3. To change the code page identifier, enter chcp <identifier-code> at the command prompt. For example, enter chcp 949 to use ANSI or OEM Korean (Unified Hangul Code).
