To install Chinese Toolbox manually, just copy the files in to any folder on your computer (e.g., a publicly shared folder) except “Documents\Chinese Toolbox.

You must unzip the distribution files to a folder; you can’t run Chinese Toolbox from within the ZIP file.

The “Chinese Toolbox” folder under Documents (or “My Documents”) is used by Chinese Toolbox to store the current user’s Chinese Toolbox files. Don’t install the distribution files into this user folder.

Note: This version of the Chinese Toolbox installer does not include a code signing certificate, so when you begin to install, you’ll get an “Unknown Publisher” warning message. Refer to these installation instructions for more information.
