require help on power automate desktop control within RDP connection

Hi Team,

  I am working on an automation requirement where the power automate desktop client is installed in an local pc and it has to rdp a server/ machine, and it works until this point

after that when i try to control or move mouse within RDP it does not seem to work

within rdp it is recognizing everything as an image and not as an element or object or anything

when i move a mouse over google chrome inside RDP and click on it

it says move mouse on image1 and each such action is captured as image

and when the flow is run again, it just says image not found

i have tried both recording and capturing the individual image but nothing seems to work

can someone please let me know if PAD does control RDP or this cant be achieved at all

I really don't think it's possible to capture any controls from an rdp session, only from the machine where you are running PAD.

We just need to wait until they release this feature.

We always 10 steps behind in term of features.

Uipath already has this feature, it called Remote Runtime.

Thanks much, i will go through UI path and see if that helps
