The difference between Engineer's Toolset for Desktop and Engineer's Toolset for the Web

There are two different versions of Engineer's Toolset, and each version is fundamentally different. Each version has its own license, its own installation process, and its own system requirements. They do not depend on each other or interact, and you can install both versions onto the same computer.

Purchasing Engineer's Toolset gives you full licensed access to both Engineer's Toolset for Desktop and Engineer's Toolset for the Web. Or if you're evaluating Engineer's Toolset, you can use both versions without restriction during the 14-day evaluation period.
