    I assume it's in a zip file?

    If you go into the zip file, there will either be a "my libraries" folder or a "runtime" folder. Just drag those files into the folder containing your My libraries or Runtime folders.

    Not quite, the Runtime needs to be MERGED with the default Runtime inside My Library. If you do that it will add the content. You can not have one Runtime inside another Runtime, DS will only read the top one and ignore the one inside the other one.

    Hi, if you have installed it and merged the folders then you will need to go to the content tab and search known drives for new files. You should be able to find them after doing this.

    If you have DS open when you move new data to the library/runtime folders it won't show up untill you do a refresh or restart DAZ. To do a refresh you can right click on the 'DAZ Studio Formats' and/or "Poser Formats" in the content tab and select 'refresh.'

    Depending on your DS version that set is just morhps and will only show in the Shaping Tab or Parameters Tab when you have a genesis Selected in your Scene Tab. It does say in the info that the extra characters will only work if you have the other DS morphs installed. It does not say which packs, so who knows if they, the characters, will work or not.

    EDIT: I looked at the files, if installed properly you should have about 10 new morphs and two characters, one Pin-up and one cartoon version of the pin-up. The file structure is correct. Did you Megre the Data folder with Your Data folder? ect ect ect... You can not have a My Library folder inside another My Library folder.
