The TeX Live Launcher is an easy way to give Windows users access to a TeX Live installation on a network as if it were a local installation. Features: - On first startup, the launcher does the user configuration which would otherwise have been done during a local installation. - the menu items and buttons within the launcher replace the several Start menu items normally created during a local installation. - Easy customization with an ini file, e.g. incorporating additional software See the manual for placement of tlaunch.exe and tlaunch.ini, and for customizing the ini file. The launcher is already part of TeX Live. The 2017 installer has an option to make the installation launcher-based. A script tlaunchmode is included which can convert a classic installation into a launcher-based one and back. The manual has a section on this script. The file rug.zip contains as an example a more elaborate configuration, based on the installation at the Rijksuniversiteit Groningen.

tlaunch – A Windows GUI to run a networked TeX Live as if installed locally
TLaunch, or the TeX Live launcher, is a Windows GUI to run a shared or networked TeX Live. It takes care of all the configuration which would be done otherwise by a local installer.
The interface and file associations are configured via an ini file, which can be edited to give access to additional TeX-related software.
