How to do a manual install in Daz Studio.

1. Download the zip file and unzip it to your desktop.

3. This folder will contain all the files you need to install.
4. Locate your Documents Folder
5. Go Documents > DAZ 3D > Studio > My Library and add the files from your unzipped file. The file must go into the exact same folder on your computer as in your zip folder. If the folder does not exist on your computer the copy the whole folder to its proper location.
