Updating msconvert and Pwiz

How to update ProteoWizard tools and configure TPP


The Windows distribution of TPP ships with a recent version of ProteoWizard tools (including msconvert). If you have the need to update those tools before the next TPP release (or you do not want to update TPP), follow the instructions below to install and configure TPP to use them.

A common use case for updating is, for example, if you’re analyzing data from a very new instrument and msconvert gives an error: unable to parse instrument model.


  1. Update ProteoWizard

  2. Configure Petunia

  3. Test!
