  4. Click "Open". Note that the downloaded file is a .zip file. Depending on which tool is set to view the archive, the following steps may differ. The screenshots below show which steps should be taken to extract the files from the archive to the "chk" directory on the File Server by using the default Windows software.

  7. Select a folder to extract files to. The folder should be the File Server installation directory (as configured in Install File Server), followed by "\chk". E.g., if the File Server is installed in "C:\Program Files\TIOBE\TICS\FileServer" the code checker goes into "C:\Program Files\TIOBE\TICS\FileServer\chk". Subsequently click the "Next >" button.
