Hopefully you can pick out which file has what you need (probably .m, but once I again, you should know this). Open it like this: <<"C:/the rest of the file path/ the file.m" Instead of "/" you might need to use "\". I forget, but one of them works. That method has worked for me, I never really "installed" a new package. I have always just referenced files from my hard drive. Hope that helps.
