Turbo Client

Turbo Client Installation

The latest Turbo Client may be downloaded from https://turbo.net/download.

Installing Turbo Client for a Single User

To install the Turbo Client using default settings, double-click on the installer. This will configure the client for the current user and place the client components in the %LOCALAPPDATA%\Turbo user directory. Shortcuts will be added to the Start Menu in the Turbo.net folder for quick access to the Turbo.net Preferences. In addition, shortcuts will be added to the Startup folder to automatically start the Turbo Client.

The Turbo Client launches applications from the workspace portal using the turbo:// protocol, so a browser extension is not required for application launches.

Installing Turbo Client for All Users

The Turbo Client can be installed for all users on the machine with the --all-users flag, which will place the client components in the %PROGRAMFILES(x86)%\turbo directory and register the shortcuts for all users on the system.

Note that if users on the machine already have the Turbo Client installed in their user directories, then their single user installs will be overridden by the all user install. Additional updates to the Turbo Client will occur for the all users installation even if the --all-users flag is omitted. If the Turbo Sandbox Manager detects that an instance for all users has been installed while running as single user, it will automatically remove itself to avoid any potential version conflicts.

Turbo Client Unattended Installation

Pass the --silent flag to the client installer to suppress the UI popups that may block unattended installs.

Passing Config Flags to Turbo Client Installer

Pass turbo config flags to the Turbo Client installer to configure the client at install time, such as setting the Turbo Server as the Domain URL and a trusted source.

# Install Turbo Client with a configured Domain URL and trusted source.
> Turbo-Plugin.exe --all-users --silent --domain=https://my.turboserver/ --add-trusted-source=https://my.turboserver/

If you are using the MSI installer, pass the config flags in CMDLINE:

# Install Turbo Client MSI with a configured Domain URL and trusted source.
> msiexec /i Turbo-Plugin.msi cmdline="--domain=https://my.turboserver/ --add-trusted-source=https://my.turboserver/" /qn

Uninstalling Turbo Client via the Command Line

To uninstall the Turbo.net Sandbox Manager, you may pass the /uninstall flag to the TurboSandbox.exe in the %LOCALAPPDATA%\turbo[client-version] directory for single user installs or %PROGRAMFILES(x86)%\turbo[client-version] for all user installs.

# Uninstall for single user
C:\> "%LOCALAPPDATA%\Turbo\[client-version]\TurboSandbox.exe" /uninstall /silent
