The dialog option you talk about says:
[ ] REPLACE_BASE EOL, no longer supported
I'm quite sure the end-user you're talking about can get a clue from it,
and if he either already had selected it before, or he just selected it, he
===> bind99-9.9.6P1_3 REPLACE_BASE is no longer supported.
The end-user can then get another clue and maybe unselect it.
