Simple answer is yes.  Bryce is backward compatible right back to content written for Bryce 4.  It will even open scene files from Br4 onwards,

Next question… how do I install it? I got the Freebie Bryce5 Content Kit, I double click the file which says its a .exe and…. nothing… nada

Am I doing something wrong?

Running Windows Vista.

Thanks
Amy

They are older files and need the Fix that is listed in the Sticky in the Commons. I used it and all the files install properly after the fix.

This is a link to the Utility that helps you install the files that display this behaviour.

To any place you wish. It is just a fixed install file. You will run the fixed file just like the file you downloaded. It will run this time and install the content in the proper place.

Note: Read the Read me Files, you will learn where the files are, if you need to do anything else and how to do the extra things if you need to do anything at all.
