Well, if that isn't working for you, just use the filepath of the unzipped 
file.  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.
