Website Theme Template could not be installed: missing style sheet

I’ve searched the help section, and it says to make sure I download the “installable download file”. However… I then unzipped file to find no other zip files within it. There is only one file offered for download. I attempted to install on localhost, it failed. I attempted to install on live host, it failed.

Installing theme from uploaded file:

Unpacking the package…
Installing the theme…
The package could not be installed. The theme is missing the style.css stylesheet.
Theme installation failed.

seems to me you are trying to install a html template. please make sure you have purchased a wordpress theme not a html template.

OMG. You are right. It has a Wordpress blog… and I thought it was a complete Wordpress site. Ok… I’m rusty. Thanks for your insight.
