When I used sitemapper to scan my web which is www.coedru.com, I receive the following error. Sitemapper has detected a <meta> tag which is preventing our software to scan your website. To fix this issue, go to tool> option, uncheck respect robot.txt. file and <meta> robot tag" check box. Then rescan your website.

My question is: Which file should I open and by what software?

My website starts with index.php file. I normally use notepad to edit it. Note pad does not have tool>option.

I think the message was meant to refer to the following in the Sitemapper program: Settings > Scan Options tab. One will find there the check box that is mentioned, and unticking it does the trick for your website.

Perhaps the message was correct for a previous version of the program.

Your google verification code is in the wrong place on your page. Move it and I bet it will then scan.
I can't hear what I'm looking at.
It's easy to overlook something you're not looking for.
