I decided to install 2018 SP0.1

On the install options page I get this note...

Note: For a new installation, some products will be upgraded if older versions exist. Click Help for more information.

I know how to follow directions. So, I click on help...

On the Upgrade Options page I read this...

Here's my question,

 

What are the some products will be upgraded if older versions exist?

Why are the messages so cryptic?

Why can't a list be accumulated and displayed as to exactly which files/programs will be upgraded in the stand alone install?
