Automation Workshop


New versions are backward compatible, and all previously created Tasks will keep running also on the updated Automation Workshop. The update procedure is simple, fast and fully automated, and takes less than a minute:

  • It might be useful to create a backup of Tasks and Settings before proceeding with an update.
  • Stop the Service (Tools menu, Options, Service tab, push Stop button).
  • Close Automation Workshop Manager (File, Exit).
  • Run Automation Workshop setup, proceed with regular installation (there is no need to uninstall existing version).
  • Open Automation Workshop and start the Service (Tools, Options, Service, Start).

If the Automation Workshop Service has not been stopped during the installation process, in some rare cases restarting the system may be required to update the Service. When Automation Workshop Manager and Service versions do not match, Event 1221 will be shown.


Upgrade path of Automation Workshop. We support direct upgrades from every previous version (such as 7.6, 2.3.1, or 1.2, and even earlier) to the newest 8.0.0 version. You can skip directly to the latest—you do not have to install any past releases. Every major release is cumulative and it includes all the previous improvements and fixes. Enjoy the exceptional and effortless upgrade experience!

Interoperability and compatibility of Automation Workshop Tasks. We craft Automation Workshop in a way that all Tasks created in previous versions should work without any issues. Moreover, we extensively test thousands of Task scenarios on hundreds of test server configurations to ensure full compatibility with previous releases.

Although Automation Workshop is comprehensively tested for backward compatibility with earlier software versions, due to the vast range of possible computer configurations and automation scenarios, it is impossible to grant absolute compatibility. For example, when we remove obsolete SSL v3 and add the latest TLS 1.3 protocol support, a Task that relies on obsolete standards may not work anymore.

Automation Workshop updates should be tested in your test environment before implementing them in production environment.

Great success!
