I have installed Pega Robotics Studio 8.0.1037 . To do RPA configuration along with PEGA 7.2.2 I followed the instructions .
As part of "VM Registration" I am seeing below instruction :
a. Right Click on Robot icon in Toolbar Tray.
b. Click on Enter RPA Credentials and provide robotic administrator user name and password.
c. Click Load Local project and browse for the deployed project file to load the automation in runtime.
But I am not seeing any Robot icon in the toolbar tray(bottom right hand side) of my laptop where I can get the option to load/unload local project.
Within studio , if I run a project , then I am seeing a robot icon appearing on the toolbar tray(bottom right hand side) of my laptop . There I can see the option to "Enter credentials" , but I am not seeing option to load/unload local project .
Can you please help me in resolving the issue ? Thanks in advance ..

I went to the folder C:\Program Files (x86)\OpenSpan\OpenSpan Studio for Microsoft Visual Studio 2015 and double clicked on the "OpenSpan.Runtime" application . Then I am getting error message : "Cannot continue with no package loaded. Runtime will now exit" .
In %appdata%\OpenSpan you will need to edit the RuntimeConfig.xml file. There is a key that is causing your issue. Look for: <add key="AllowRunwithNoPackage" value="false" />. Change the value to true.
Sound like you are trying to use the Pega Robotic Automation Deployment Portal but has not been set up yet or checked "enable server connectivity" during the install process by mistake. If you are using or plan to use the Automation Deployment Portal "load local project" would not be present since the project would have been assigned through the Automation Deployment Portal.
I would recommend that you disable this feature. This can be done by modifying the commonConfig located in %programdata%\OpenSpan. Below is the section of the commonConfig that needs to be modify. To disable the server connectivity make sure that enable is set to false.
The system tray robot icon is not getting displayed for me as well.I set the AllowRunwithNoPackage to true and tried to run the OpenSpan.Runtime.exe as an admin.But the system tray icon is still missing.I enabled log4Net and have attached it here.
Its showing the following,
Failed to register Robot - Name: 'localhostPEGADEMO', Queue: 'Customer service'
I disabled all the servers in the ServerConfiguration in CommonConfig file and the system tray icon appeared when I ran the OpenSpan.Runtime.exe file.Then I gave the credentials and then loaded the robotics application by selecting load local project. But I couldn't see any log entry related to robot registration.What should be done to register the bot?I have attached the log file here.
