Camtasia 9.1.1 Nov 10
Windows 7 Professional

I followed the instructions to install the 150 new video assets - there were no problems or error messages. 

I didn't see any sort of inclusion into Camtasia itself. How do I check that the new video assets were actually installed?

On the upper left of your screen, click the 'Media' tab, and the 'Library.' You should see a number of 'Bonus' folders.

There are NO "Bonus..." libraries whatsoever.

Your download should be named,  "Camtasia_December2017_Bonus_Windows.zip"  When you double-click that file, it should open a window with a folder named, "December_Bonus_Windows" All good so far?

Then you double-click that folder,  you'll find three files. Double-click "December_Bonus_Windows_Installer.libzip" and it should automatically add the bonus libraries to Camtasia.

Also note the "Windows Installation Instructions" file if this isn't working for you.

When I double-click the "December_Bonus_Windows_Installer.libzip" file, it opens the libzip file and graciously shows me its contents, but doesn't pull the contents into camtasia.

Just for snicks, I unzipped the file on my local drive and then went through the clicks. Libraries are now loaded in Camtasia.

Suggestion:
In the download-install instructions, change step #2 (for Windows) to be:  Uncompress the zip file  to your local disk.   The current instruction to double-click the  .zip file merely opens it. That was the problem.
