With regard to understand the first option that I have explained, I'll explain you second one.

I believe that this is clear to everyone and we will skip that part.

table with some options will appear to you.

Add Installation directory to search path - %PATH% is a variable that contains the path in which the search command line programs to execute. For example, in the command prompt you can enter only "calc" instead of "C:/Windows/system32/calc" to run the calculator, because is in %PATH%. So if you add the WinCSP in path, you will not have to search for the program if you want to start on through the command line. (Thanks Klipica for the explanation)
A window with two options will appear, commander and explorer
Commander - When you connect to your GamePanel via FTP, it will split you a window into two parts. Left side will
be your files from your computer, and right side will be files on your GamePanel. As the filezila or Total Commander (picture below)
Explorer - when you connect, new window will appear (your gamepanel)
