Download the library and put it with all the other libraries. The library folder is under the IDE folder e,g, Arduino-1.0.1\libraries. There should be some examples included in the library folder.

There should be some examples included in the library folder.While that technique, a carryover from older Arduino implementations, will work, you will be better off using the currently recommended procedure which is explained here --> http://arduino.cc/en/Guide/Libraries <-- .Why will you be better off? Because if you do it this way you don't have to remember to reinstall the library if you upgrade to a newer Arduino release.Don
... simply bring up the IDE then click on: [File]->[Preferences] ...
Quote... simply bring up the IDE then click on: [File]->[Preferences] ...Interesting ...I did that and I found that for my 64-bit Windows 7 installation it pointed to: C:\Users\Don\Documents\ArduinoWhen I got there I found that the 'libraries' folder was already present. Inside the libraries folder I found readme.txt and the contents of that file said "For information on installing libraries, see: http://arduino.cc/en/Guide/Libraries". Now that looks awfully familiar....Note that depending on your (Microsoft) operating system version the Documents folder may be called My Documents.Anyway - my recommendation still stands, this is just a different way of finding out that it is no longer recommended to put your 'extra' libraries in the same location as those supplied with the IDE.Don
