How to install nUI and nUI+
I strongly recommend that you start with a clean slate when installing nUI... often users will have a collection of old mods, saved variable data and other things that will interact adversely with nUI.
So... to start... follow these simple steps...
Two things I do recommend people install pretty much immediately is either DBM or BigWigs and either the combination of Recount, Omen and the nUI_InfoPanel_DualStats plugin or Skada (which does the job of all three) -- I also recommend Clique for those who like to click-cast -- nUI is compatible with all of these mods and, for most players, you probably do not *have* to have any mods other than those. That said, nUI is compatible with most mods, so if you *must* then you should be able to use pretty much any mod with nUI. For those who want the extra help with quests (though that's not so necessary anymore with the 4.0 changes) nUI will work with QuestHelper, Carbonite and LightHeaded.
If you have trouble locating the correct [ World of Warcraft ] folder (step #2 above), I would recommend you right-click the launcher icon on your desktop and then select "Properties" to see what directly WoW is installed in.
As an alternative, in Windows Vista and Windows 7 you can just open the ZIP file in the Windows Explorer (though my experience has been this is unreliable) and copy and paste the [ nUI ] folder from the ZIP file to the [ World of Warcraft > Interface > AddOns ] folder.
Either way, if you have correctly installed nUI, when you are done, you should be able to dive down your directory tree to [ World of Warcraft > Interface > AddOns > nUI > Layouts > Default ] for either nUI or nUI+ -- for nUI+ you should also have the folder [ World of Warcraft > Interface > AddOns > nUI > Layouts > Default > UnitPanels > Raid40 ]
