Then please read my prior posts - I have always said either "not on the
install discs" or "not installable by default" (ala the app add/remove
program) - many time I have used shorthand to say not included. This

This is okay - for the disks that are physically shipped and not
downloaded or require network access. You have confirmed what other have
denied, though. Thanks.
