I'm teaching a small mass spec course and I have a TPP demonstration planned for the students, but unfortunately the institute computers wipe upon restart. Is there any way for the students to install the TPP and access the Petunia interface without having to reboot the computers? Can the TPP be installed on and run from a USB drive instead of the computer itself?

Hi Will, I think the answer is yes, although I’d need to test on a fresh computer for the exact protocol. I think you can launch the TPP Tray app and then use that to start Apache and then you’re good to go. Is this for Windows computers?

Hi Eric,

Your advice worked! For the record, I did the following:
  1. Installed the TPP v6.1 on the PCs running Windows 10
  2. Entered directory C:/TPP/bin
  3. Ran "tpptray.bat"
  4. Clicked the TPP in the Windows tray and clicked "Start TPP web server"
  5. Opened Petunia successfully
I appreciate your prompt help with this,
