TUtoolbox

The TUtoolbox installs all TU.it tools under Windows, some of which can also be downloaded as individual programs. This installation tool simplifies the download for all Windows users and also simplifies the automated distribution of the tools.

It is therefore recommended for all Windows users to download the tools using the TUtoolbox.

Details

Since the number of tools has increased greatly recently and it is too time-consuming to write and maintain an installer for each of the tools, TUtoolbox has now been created as a solution for all tool installer problems under Windows. All tools of the software distribution can be installed under Windows with the TUtoolbox. The TUtoolbox installer dynamically downloads a list of available tools and always installs the latest version. By running TUtoolbox again, further tools can be added or tools that are no longer required can be removed. If programs are in use, the changes are applied after a restart.

TUtoolbox also replaces the installers for the Microsoft activation scripts (existing installations of the activation scripts are automatically removed).

Function notes

At first startup, the list of available tools is downloaded. The recommended tools are preselected, necessary packages are selected and grayed out (and thus cannot be deselected). After successful installation the selection is saved. When TUtoolbox is started again, the last selected packages are selected. For new packages the preselection is used again.

Each time TUtoolbox is used, the latest versions of the programs are installed. Tools that are no longer needed can be removed by unchecking them.

TUtoolbox can be uninstalled like any application via Windows App Settings.

The TUtoolbox can now be installed automatically via the Windows Package Manager with winget install TUtoolbox. A hidden installation is also supported with winget install TUtoolbox -h. With winget upgrade TUtoolbox or winget upgrade --all TUtoolbox can be kept up to date in the background.

/silent
The installer runs without user interaction but visibly.
/verysilent
