I got 1.2.0 version Studio installed by my admin. But when I login into this machine and open the Studio I don't see any commands listed in 'Commands' tab. Surprisingly all the commands are shown with Admin login. I tried to install from Package Manager but no luck. They are shown under 'Project Dependencies' but I don't see them listed under 'Commands' tab. Machine: 2016 server

Hello Avinash,

Due to the command consolidation included in the v1.3.0 release we made the decision to remove the older packages from the Gallery. This is to prevent users from installing packages that contain the same underlying commands (pre/post consolidation), which could cause many issues. Any user opening a v1.3.0 Studio will have their project's dependencies converted to the consolidated packages. I would highly recommend upgrading to v1.3.0 due to the significant improvements to the performance and usage of the Studio. If you would like to remain on your current version please send me an email at and I will provide you with the NuGet files for v1.2.1 installation (you will be able to install them by configuring a local feed in the Package Manager).

Hi Murali, Thanks for reaching out to us regarding the Missing Commands after Installing OpenBots. Installed packages are stored in Local AppData Folder, specific to each user. Since the Installer was run as an Administrator, all the packages would have been installed in the Local AppData Folder for Admin. This would have caused the packages to not appear in the command Window, since it was installed for another user. This would explain why you were able to see the commands only when logged as Admin. You can check the following path - C:\Users<your account>\AppData\Local\OpenBots Inc\packages, to check the packages status.

To solve this issue, we would suggest you reinstall the packages through the Package Manager->Gallery. Make sure before installing each package, you choose the version for the package as �1.2.0�, to match the version of the OpenBots Studio. The version of the packages has to be same and not higher than the OpenBots Studio version for the packages to be compatible. Once the packages are installed, you should be able to see them in the command window of OpenBots Studio, when logged in from your account.

Our Development team is aware of this issue and working on it. It should be fixed in the upcoming release, after which you will not have to reinstall the packages again from the Package Manager.

Hope this helps and have a great weekend!

This is the message when I try to create new project: Missing Misc Commands Package, please download the package from Package Manager and retry.
