Well, I am on Ubuntu so Windows stuff is not useful...
But I found its GitHub home so I could check out the sources after seeing that
it as FreePascal/Lazarus to use as dev tools and that is exactly what I use
daily. :)

But I came to a halt anyway since the sources has layer after layer of
dependencies, which are not explained in the readme file.

The first dependency on "internettools" could be resolved since the same author
had this also on his GitHub:

But then a bunch of other dependencies appeared which I decided were too much to
hunt down.
So I had to give up....
Too bad.
