copying the texlive 2019 setup from virtual machine to real hardware on windows 10

I had installed texlive in a vmware virtual machine on Windows 10 (the virtual machine OS is Windows 10) I thought of using it on a real physical machine. On that real physical machine I copied the folder from vmware virtual machine texlive from `C:\texlive` to real physical machine I have copied all the 6 Gb content to real physical machine in

`C:\installation\texlive` directory. I want to know what should I do to make it work? I already have miktex installation on this physical machine. The folder moved/copied is texlive 2019.

• Your TeXLive would more or less work as-is if you just add `c:\texlive\2019\bin\win32` to the searchpath, although you would miss out on other system integration such as file associations.
• Or, if you run `c:\texlive\bin\win32\tlaunch`, it will turn your copy into a launcher-based installation, see https://www.ctan.org/pkg/tlaunch. Afterwards, you can convert between 'classic' and launcher mode with the tlaunchmode script.
• Or, if you click on `c:\texlive\2019\tl-tray-menu`, then you get a tray menu from which you can perform various TeXLive-related tasks. This is maybe the best solution, since it will not interfere with your MiKTeX.
