    I download file first from email. Tried installing but got error message: Error! Could not find an XML setup file in the package.

    Tried logging into account and accessing file there and redownloaded/installed but same error message.

    Anyway help would be great. Thank you!

    Hello,

    Just to verify, did you unzip the download first? Your install package should start with com_awocoupon...

    Hi Seyi,

    Thanks for your help.

    No, I just uploaded as per instructions here:

    Installation
    1. Download AwoCouon for Virtuemart to a location on your computer
    2. Log into Joomla as an Administrator
    3. From the top menu go to Extensions->"Install/Uninstall"
    4. Under the “Upload Package File" section press the button "Browse…"
    5. Find and select the file, com_awocoupon.zip, downloaded to your computer
    6. Install component by pressing "Upload File & Install" button

    I saw the .zip written and just assumed to leave as zip. But now I realise the file name is AwoCoupon-Pro-UNZIP-FIRST. Silly that I didnt see it :/

    So Ill unzip now and upload folder? Do I follow the two step instructions listed or it should just install fine? Sorry Im not a professional at this stuff.

    Thanks Amanda

    Hello Amanda,

    You can re-transfer it for another 2 weeks or make it permanent:
