  4. Fill in your company information (optional). Press the "..." to browse for a location license file that you have obtained from TIOBE. If you do not have a license file (yet), you can leave the field blank and ignore the warning. After installation you can place the license file in the "cfg" directory manually.

    Click "Next >".

  5. TICS provides add-ins for several popular development IDEs. The installer attemps to detect which IDEs you have installed and checks the appropriate options. You can override these options. If the machine you run the installer on is not used to develop, you can uncheck these options.

    Click "Next >".

  6. The TICS installer downloads additional components from the internet during installation. If your computer has an active internet connection, you can skip this paragraph.

    Otherwise, you have to make these components available to the installer. You can download the mentioned components at http://portal.tiobe.com/downloads/files/pub/externals/windows:

    Please provide the location where where the installer can find these prerequisities, e.g. "C:\Downloads". Click "Next >".
