Downloadsand install TextPad, and many of the freeware add-ons available at

textpad_installer looks in the directory where textpad_installer.exe is for any files it needs before attempting to download them. If it does download a file, it will attempt to save a copy of the file in a directory below the directory where textpad_installer.exe was found in.

The add-ons will be installed in the C:\Documents and Settings\%USERNAME%\Application Data\TextPad directory. Any add-ons with the same name in this directory will be overwritten without warning.

Please note, if you select 'All', some add-ons have the same filenames as other add-ons, so the one listed later, will overwrite the one listed earlier.

If you use the /S option, the installer will re-install TextPad, even if it's already installed.
