Installing PWS

On Windows 98, PWS offers the following three installation options:

  • Minimum install   The minimum necessary components to operate PWS.
  • Typical install   Minimum options plus additional functionality and documentation.
  • Custom install   Presents all possible components as options, with all options included in the minimum and typical installations pre-selected.

The following table describes the available options for each type of installation. An X in the Min. column indicates options included by default in the Minimum Install option. An X in the Typ. column indicates additional options included in the Typical Install option. Options without an X in either column are available as selections in the Custom Install option.
