I guess starting with v12, the regular installer does only allow to choose components on a rather high level, e.g. you can choose to install the "SQL Anywhere database" or not, or you can choose to install MobiLink or not.
In older versions and in the according Deployment Wizard of newer versions, you can choose on a more detailed level, say which according client APIs you want to install or whether you would like to install the whole MobiLink suite or just the MobiLink client:
It would be fine if the regular installer would allow a finer control, too, particularly if one just wants to install some client APIs. Currently I'm tempted to create a MSI file just for these tasks...

The regular installer is designed for the developer. We assume that you will be using a variety of components to help develop your application (for example, a database server). Once you get it working, then you deploy your application using the deployment wizard to select only those components needed for your end-user to successfully run your application.
