You'll find it in the fine print for the Install reference guide entry FrontEndExecute[FrontEnd`HelpBrowserLookup["RefGuide", "Install"]] Therein you'll read the following: o Install["name`"] searches all directories on $Path for a file or directory called name.exe. The ExtendGraphics` packages call Install with context names as shown above. Because your filenames do not end with .exe, the kernel reports that the binaries cannot be found. -- P.J.
