You have an extra level of "ConicSections". You needed to unzip directly
into ExtraPackages, not into ConicSections. It might be even better to find
$BaseDirectory and then unzip into the Applications file there.

Thanks. I tried to download the ConicSections but couldn't make it
work. Probably something that I am doing wrong, if this is off-topic
here I'd send you an e-mail. But instead of the file structure that
you have in your readme file I get this


and when I execute the Needs["ConicSections`ConicSections`"] I get an
error message and after I rebuild the help file I don't see it there
either. I tried to fix the file structure but didn't work.
