You're technically not installing the programs. To do that, you have to open up those icons that pop up on your desktop and then drag the program's icon inside to your Applications folder. THEN it is installed.

If you want to make a shortcut to those programs on your Dock, just navigate to your Applications folder and drag the program to your Dock. It will automatically create a shortcut.
