It's necessary to install content to the correct path for use in DAZ Studio 4.  This is especially true for Genesis add-ons.  By default, DAZ Studio 4 selects the following paths.   If you didn't choose a different path when you installed DAZ Studio 4, then these paths below are probably the correct paths to use:

DS4 Default Content Install Path, Windows Vista and Windows 7
C:\Users\[Your User Account]\Documents\DAZ 3D\Studio\My Library 

DS4 Default Content Install Path, Windows XP
C:\Documents and Settings\[Your User Account]\My Documents\DAZ 3D\Studio\My Library 

DS4 Default Content Install Path, Mac
Users\[Your User Account]\Documents\DAZ 3D\Studio\My Library

Which Tab? Smart Content or Content Library?
Keep in mind that most content available in the store does not use metadata and will therefore only appear in the Content Library Tab.   Only new products, including Genesis add-ons, and a very few updated old products, will appear in the Smart Content Tab.

View the Readme
It's very important and very helpful to you to view the readme.  Although simple, the readme gives you the path where you can find the content in the appropriate tab.
