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.

For trying this out on an existing local installation, 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 which also explains how to install it.

The file rug.zip contains as an example a more elaborate
configuration, based on the installation at the Rijksuniversiteit
Groningen.
