Where is everything going when I install?

Topaz Labs software installs to several different locations. The reason for this is that some of our products are plugins, and some of them are what are referred to as standalone applications. The difference between the two is quite simple. Plugins require another application to be accessed. Standalone applications, however, can be launched directly, without needing another application. The two types of applications means that there are varied places that we must install the files to. See the tables below to determine exactly which files are placed in while folder/directory.
