tcMenu Designer app

TcMenu designer is the application that allows you to quickly generate data structures that can be used with tcMenu, it works in association with input, display, and remote capability plugins to provide a full application with IoT capabilities over Serial, Bluetooth, WiFi and ethernet. Additional endpoints can be easily created.

You can choose to use either the App Store version or download it from here, the advantage (and disadvantage) of the App store version is that it’s kept up to date for you, but as a result from now on it will be updated a lot less frequently. The app store version is better for new starters, who just want to get going quickly, and try out tcMenu.


When tcMenu Designer 2.0 is using 1.7 plugins, it is backwards-compatible with the 1.7.x version of the libraries, there is no need to use BETA libraries.

We invest significant time and resources into every tcMenu, IoAbstraction and TaskManagerIO development task and release, please consider our flexible support options.

Option 1 - Get from the app store

This is the best option for new users, and people who just want an automatically maintained version of the application, think of this like a long term release:

download from the app store

Option 2 - Download directly from us

With this option you download directly from us, you manage the version yourself, and can move forward at a time more convenient to yourself. Please have the expectation that unless you have paid for professional support, questions will only be answered on versions that are Current & BETA.

Windows 10 UWP Builds

For new users, we recommend that you use the Windows Store version listed above. However, for advanced users who want more control over versioning, or try a BETA version then you can install from here too. To install the Windows 10 app the first time around, you’ll first need to accept our certificate, which is included in the downloads.

  • Pre-requisite: Your system must be in developer mode to allow non-store apps to be installed. You can use the store version to avoid this.
  • Option 1: Unzip the contents, right click on “install.ps1”, select to execute in power shell.
  • Option 2: After the first installation, you can use the Windows 10 App Installer to install the “.appxbundle” package.

tcMenu Designer UWP and MacOS - 2.x releases

By system on February 5, 2021

Currently, 2.x releases are BETA, they are not ready for main-stream use yet. Our plan is to roll out 2.0 a bit more slowly, to ensure that everything is fully in order before the full release takes place. It will be along the lines of: TcMenu designer 2.0 will be released first, it is fully compatible with 1.7 in every way. This will be after a full BETA cycle. TcMenu library and plugins will be released a little after that to give people time to upgrade.
