They do not mention where to install.
They may or may not work at the application root.

For those who like FarManager like me it's a very very good file navigator. I strongly recommend it. File Association is for exemple better than in total commander or freecommander !

File Navigator DOES make registry entries. It puts the history of file copy/move-operations in the registry. Even when the INI-file is used for storing settings.
