Snagit 8.23 Custom Installation: Add-Ins vs. Accessories?

I've been using Snagit 8.23 on my Windows Vista PC for a long time and it has been GREAT.  I  accidentally uninstalled it and I need to reinstall it (same Vista PC), but I have forgotten how the Custom Installation works.  When custom installing features, my options are:  Snagit Add-ins (Word, Excel, Outlook, PowerPoint, Internet Explorer), Windows Explorer Menu Extension, and Snagit Accessories (Word Ouput, Excel Output, PowerPoint Output).  My question is: Do I need to install BOTH the Word Add-in and Word Output Accessory to use the Word Output feature in Snagit (i.e. sending a website screen capture to a Word document), or will the Word Output Accessory work on its own without the Word Add-In?  I don't need to use Snagit WITHIN Word, but I would like to be able to send a Snagit capture of a website TO a Word document.  Thanks.

You should be able to just install the word output which will send your capture to work. (YMMV)

I do not know this definitely but if it doesn’t work like you want it to then reinstall again with the addons.

You don't need the Word addin  if you just want to send captures to Word. Just the Word output.
