When installing the MSStats external tool, the "This tool requires the use of R 3.0.2 and the following packages" dialog could be confusing to users since it appears to present a single-choice picklist, but it's really just proposing to install everything listed there. Should just be a textbox.

Could also just be a label. Labels allow scrolling. The only advantage of a text box (presumably disabled to prevent editing) is that it allows copying its content to the clipboard. Not sure this is interesting, and it is not possible with the list box today.

We have lived with it for a long time now. Not making it high enough in priority to get fixed. Just as easy to find by searching our list for Won't Fixed issues.
