o the user wants to install the FileZilla FTP client
o the french documentation ZIP file is in the same
directory than the EXE installer file.
The user select a french installation, so the french
documentation is selected for installation by default.

if the user is currently off-line, or if the user is a
system admin who needs to install FileZilla on several
PCs), the user need to activate the "local directory"
checkbox and set the directory where the requested
ressource (ZIP file) is. This is not very user friendly...

The interface could be the following :
Note : [x] is a checkbox, (.) is a radiobutton
(.) Current directory
( ) Specific location [label] [browse button]
Note : if the requested ressource is not available in the
"ressource directory", the installer will
download if from
[x] Save downloaded ressource in the "ressouce
