Cannot Load Family Files

I am not sure if I have done something wrong or what, but I am trying to load a Sidelight from the imperial library that came with Revit 2011 and I get a message stating the following.

" Some or all of the family files you selected cannot be loaded. You mush choose family files or the category Doors. Do you wnat to retry loading a new set of files?"

 

"Revit cannot load the following files: Sidelights 1.rfa"

 

Any suggestions?

Try dragging the file in Explorer into revit, it worked for me.

side lights are actually windows.. hit the window tool first then load the side light..

I figured that out 20 minutes after i posted, but dragging removes the requirement that you have the correct tool selected.
