Leave the boxes checked for initialization and for the readme. It is also possible to run the initialization script manually, but usually this is not necessary.
The installation tells you that initialization is complete.
The readme opens. As with all DAZ 3D content products, we recommend that you always check the readme. It tells you where to find content in your content tab in DAZ Studio.
Your product is installed. If you have purchased a morph add-on, you can now install it.
