The Windows version of TagSpaces is distributed as
zip file, which can be downloaded for 32bit and for 64bit versions of Windows, depending on your system. Then you have to just unzip the downloaded file in a folder of your choice somewhere on your system. In the unpacked folder you will find a file called
tagspaces.exe, which can be executed with double click.
The Linux version of TagSpaces is distributed as
tar.gz file, which can be downloaded for 32bit and for 64bit Linux versions, depending on your system. Then you have to just unpack the downloaded file in a folder of your choice somewhere on your system. In the unpacked folder you will find a file called
tagspaces, which can be executed with double click or in a terminal.
For OSX 10.9 or later you have to download the 64bit of the application. Then you have to double click the downloaded zip file in Finder to unpack it properly. Some users are reporting issues with unpacking the app with some 3th-party zip utils.
Note By default Mac OSX does not allow TagSpaces to be executed with a simple double click, because it is currently not digitally signed. To work around this, right-click the TagSpaces.app folder and choose Open, then click Open on the dialog that appears. You need to do this just once.

Important In order to use the file browsing capabilities of the Chrome extension, you have to allow TagSpaces to access file URLs on your system. This action can be done on the Chrome’s extension management area (chrome://extensions/). Here you have to click on the “Allow access to file URLs” checkbox in order to enable this option, as shown on this screenshot.
The Windows and the Linux versions of the application supports running in the so called portable mode, which allows you for example to run TagSpaces from a USB stick. The portable mode can be started with the
tagspacesp.cmd script under Windows or the
tagspacesp under Linux. These scripts are located in the unzipped application folder. Under Linux you have eventually to make this script executable with this command
chmod +x tagspacesp. In the portable mode all the tags, taggroups and connection to locations are saved in folder caller
tsprofile located in the unzipped folder.
