Omniverse Workstation Launcher


This launcher and its interface differ from the standard Omniverse Workstation Launcher in that it is not designed to allow an end user to install anything directly on their own workstation or update installed applications themselves. It is therefore missing the top-level Exchange and Nucleus sections of the Workstation Launcher by design.

These sections are not present within the IT Managed Launcher as these elements are intended to be installed and configured by the IT Managers and Systems Administrators within your organization.

The other major difference between the IT Managed Launcher and the normal Workstation Launcher is that the IT Managed Launcher does not require a developer account login for it to function.

The IT Managed Launcher is a critical component for accessing the Omniverse foundation apps for your organization and users, so as a first step, your initial task is to install this component to your local users’ workstations.

IT Managed Launcher components

IT Managed Launcher Installer

This is the main application that will be installed on each users machine. Installers are available for Windows and Linux.


The TOML ml files control the setting for the install. There are three TOML files.

Omniverse.toml Used to define all the main path and options for the launcher. file is the primary configuration file for the IT Managed Launcher. Within this configuration file, the following paths are described, and they should match the selections you made in step 1. Be aware that you can set these after the installation to different paths as needed for security policy at any time.



library_root = “C:\Omniverse\library”

Path where to install all Omniverse applications

data_root = “C:\Omniverse\data”

Folder where Launcher and Omniverse apps store their data files

cache_root = “C:\Omniverse\cache”

Folder where Omniverse apps store their cache and temporary files

logs_root = “C:\Users\[username]\.nvidia-omniverse\logs”

Folder where Launcher and Omniverse apps store their logs

content_root = “C:\Users\[username]\Downloads”

Folder where Launcher saves downloaded content packs

extension_root = “C:\Users\[username]\Documents\kit\shared\exts”

Folder where all Omniverse shared extensions are stored

confirmed = true

Confirmation that all paths are set correctly, must be set to true


Also be aware that all paths on Windows require a double backslash (\) for proper operation.


If a system administrator doesn’t want to allow users to change these paths, the omniverse.toml file can be marked as read-only. Also, if a System Administrator plans to install the IT Managed Launcher to a shared location like Program Files on Windows, they need to specify a shared folder for library_root and logs_root path in omniverse.toml file.

You’re now going to add two additional files to this /config folder in addition to the omniverse.toml file.



File to provide your license details and Customer ID.

file to record consent choices for data collection and capture of crash logs Within the /config folder, then create a text file named privacy.toml. This is the configuration file for Omniverse telemetry. The file contains following information:
