All toolboxes are available for you to install; however, the more you install, the more space on your disk the program will use. If you are not sure what you will be needing, just install the defaults as you can come back to this installer in the future to add toolboxes.

17. Click Next.

18. Choose if you would like to add a shortcut to the desktop, then click Next.

19. On this page, check to make sure all the products you need installed are listed and check that you have enough disk space for your products.
