If you choose the upgrade option, you have many other choices available. For more information, see Existing Installation Options. In addition, you can select advanced options. For more information about your initial setup choices, see Installation Selection.

For a basic, local installation, select the option for creating a new or additional installation.

You can select to install either connectivity only, client tools only (which includes connectivity components), or the complete server and client tools option.
