  1. Click Download the zip file. Important: After you've downloaded the zip file and before extracting it, make sure to open the properties for that file (right-click Properties) and select the unblock check box and then click Ok.

  2. Extract this folder to anywhere you want Source++ to run from.

  3. Start Source++ by executing spp-platform.exe, located in the root directory, preferably from the command line. If you want to run Source++ as a Windows service, then download NSSM. It is very easy to add Source++ as a Windows service using that tool.

Note: The default Source++ port is 12800. This port might require extra permissions on Windows. If it does not appear in the default port, you can try changing to a different port.
