Installation of Live Packs

I have a PureMagnetik live pack called Puremagnetik Mutations.alp. When I drop it onto the Albeton interface or click to open the file, it asks me where I want to install? I'm relatively new to Ableton, and wonder where I should direct the installation? The Ableton Library?


Thx ....

    Hopefully, he figured out that it does not matter where you "install" the live packs, because they are basically just folders filled with sounds. As long as you have them accessible to the project when you open it, you should be able to keep them anywhere, including an external hard drive, granted that it never fails and that it is always plugged in. Personally, I have my live packs stored on a secondary hard drive in my laptop, and it works swimmingly.

    I may be doing it wrong. But I've found that on a mac, all I have

    to do is double-click the pack in the downloads folder, and it installs itself.

    Please disregard this question. I've figured it out.
