  1. Unpack the content of zip archive to your local hard drive.

    Note: Installation directly from network shared storage may not always work properly.
  2. Double click on "Install.bat" file and after few seconds this tool will be installed to Program Files folder on your computer and new Search Extension option will be added to your Windows context menu.

There is a security restriction in Windows 10 system, which might for some reason prompt a warning about installation of Search Extension. Most likely because it is installed through a .bat file.
