MIssing pro-materials

I have bought and installed the pro version of Bryce (version 7.1.0.109), but I dont have all the pro-materials. Is there a file I am missing? I have installed these files:
Bryce_7.1.0.109_Win32
BryceLightning_7.1.0.109_Win
BryceContent_7.0.0.21_Win

BryceProContent_7.0.0.19_Win

    Bryce_7.1.0.109_Win32   is the main application folder.     do not allow the content files to replace content already installed.

    This document is very helpful in showing you  where your presets should be installed

    You only need Bryce lightning if you are planning on running a render farm

  • Thank you Chohole! 
    It seems to me like Bryce is a program with very low priority from it's developer? Holy crap, even with your PDF file it took me a while to figure out how to use the pro-materials! When you pay for software it really should be a lot easier to figure out than this. Without your help I would have been completely lost!

    I was reading horo's guide, and i'm not understanding well why we install Bryce and ProContent in one folder, and Content in another one - is it more comfortable for back-up and managing? Or we should move stuff from "Content" to main app folder?

    After installing i got 540 mb size of main Bryce folder and 852 mb size of Content folder. Hope it would go well. I'm launching Bryce now for a first time, and i see how small icons look (i'm win10, 1920x1080. Changing resolution to 720p ain't changing much)

    see photo for reference. sorry for lens distortion (tablet's camera), Silver Apples's CD would give an idea of size

    Bryce does not really worry about wide screen monitors.   You have to remember that the interface hasn't really changed much since the 1990s   It is one of Bryce's delightful quirks.

    Ok, i need a magnifying glass and learn some keyboard shortcuts :)

    Materials Lab is also pretty small on high-res.
