The «plugin» version need to reside in a sub-folder of another 
installation. It piggy back on another installed version.

The «stand alone» is similar but come with all the other files of a 
standard version. As the stand alone  version is older, it may contain 
some bugs that where fixed in the later version, and lack some 
optimizations and features.

You may want to install the standalone version, then, replace the 
executable with the latest version.
