How do you import sound kits into the program to use?

I bought some drum and bass kits from another source but I can't use them because I'm having trouble importing them. I've unzipped every file and created a separate folder on my desktop but I'm having a very hard time trying to use them normally. Dragging and dropping does not work, it just says my sounds are on the desktop when I go through my sound library on Ableton and YES, they are meant to work with this program. Please help, I've tried everything I can think of and it is very frustrating.

    Hi Alex, 

    Usually additional content for Live comes in the form of a Live pack, which has an .alp file ending. 

    This file can simply be dragged and dropped into Live's application window and will install accordingly. 

    However, if this does not work or you don't know how to access the content of the pack, we recommend getting in touch with the place where you purchased the pack, as they might have more knowledge about this.
