Quick start guide:
- Download and extract TCE Selector.

- After choosing your language and the installation directory, you can choose to create shortcuts in your start menu or on the desktop.
- After installation has finished, make sure to grant read/write permission to the directory C:/Program Files/TCESelector for the users, that use the program.
