JInstaller: :Install: Cannot find XML setup file

I'm trying to install Docman 1.6.7 into Joomla 2.5.8. I uploaded the tar.gz file into the /tmp folder. From Joomla, I then used "install from directory" and pointed it to the /tmp folder. Shortly thereafter, I get the following error message:

JInstaller: :Install: Cannot find XML setup file

Path does not have a valid package.

Why is this happening? You advertise that this is 2.5 compatible, but if it doesn't install it clearly isn't compatible.

Do you have any suggestions for how I can get this to install? If not, I want my money back.

Thank you,

Hi Gary,

To use install from directory you need to point the install to a directory that contains the unzipped contents of the package you have downloaded from us. You can either unzip the package locally and upload it, or upload the as whole and unzip it on your sever.

For more information on installing extensions also see the official Joomla documentation :
