Paper Abstract

This paper presents the actual status of the Telescope Control Software on the VLTs and on the other telescopes. The main focus is in the characteristics that make the TCS architecture portable on very different mechanical and optical configurations. Then the paper concentrates on the strategy used throughout the projects of integration and testing of the modular components. Particular attention is given to the installation and commissioning phases for the VLT telescopes.
