It should be straight forward.

Your extension is probably in a zip file.

On desktop there is a folder you need to copy it to.


Extract the zip file in that location

Open your desktop app and the extension should appear in the list of your installed ones.

If it doesn't I probably wouldnt be using it.

The ones on qlik branch tend to be good.
