What is the difference between “setup” and “install” based on computer programs?
According to Wikipedia search “setup” directly means “install” on computer.
According to Wikipedia search "setup" does not directly means "install". "setup" is just another word for “install" on computer.
Installation (or setup) of a computer program (including device drivers and plugins), is the act of making the program ready for execution. Because the process varies for each program and each computer, programs (including operating systems) often come with an installer, a specialized program responsible for doing whatever is needed for their installation.
but why we use two different words to describe one thing?
While in some cases (such as in Visual Basic 6 where you can create “setup.exe” of your program) “setup” used to define making a program execution ready but also in some cases (such as office programmes) “install” used instead of “setup”.
Are both 100% same or have slight differences?
