Distributed as a bundled application

This program is commonly distributed packaged together with one or more other programs in an application bundle.

When a user tries to install one of the programs in an application bundle, some installers will clearly indicate the presence of the other programs in the package; others are less transparent.

If the user is aware of and agrees to the terms and conditions for the other software included in the bundle, they may choose to proceed with installing all the programs. If they do not, they may choose to install only the desired program, if that is permitted during the installation process.
