Will PAD replace WinAutomation



I am exploring on the RPA front with Power Automate.

I understand both the tools PAD & WinAutomation are available under same license.


Before finalizing and moving forward to creating UI flows/Processes, I would like to know if WinAutomation would ever be sunset or replaced with PAD by Microsoft.


Thanks in advance.

Microsoft didn't buy Softomotive to sunset their IP. If they were going to sunset it, they would have never rebranded and released it.
