This list shows the components that will be installed in the next step. Please keep in mind all software components are installed in a suite. If you install this package a second time on the same computer, you will need to install all of the components again. This makes it easy to have multiple installations in parallel, and to uninstall a suite without jeopardizing another suite.
The installation starts now.
