How do I install the GURPS ruleset in FG?

I just re-installed FG on a new Windows 10 desktop computer, and I booted it up to discover that the GURPS ruleset is not included in the list of options. I've played on FG using the GURPS ruleset in the past, however, so I know it's possible. When I clicked on the pinned thread, I found the ruleset, but I don't see any information regarding installation. Furthermore in the thread below it I saw that there are also extensions. The extensions have installation instructions, but I can't find the FG data folder, to which they refer.

Click the folder icon in the top right of the FG statup window to get to the <FG app data> directory. Put ruleset pak files in the <FG app data>\rulesets directory, put extensions in <FG app data>\extensions

Fixed. Thank you! :)

Nice to meet you, @Seycyrus! I like most genres, to be honest. Fantasy, science fiction, horror, historical, etc. Work schedule permitting, I'd be delighted to join anything for which you have openings. My primary gaming availability will be from about 14:00-21:00 [PDT] (UTC-7). I teach in the mornings on weekdays, so most mornings are off limits as are late evenings. Saturdays are usually with the wife, but the odd Sunday is also a possibility.

I've played D&D 4e & 5e, Pathfinder, Savage Worlds, WoD, but I'm committed to learning GURPS (I'm tired of learning systems, so I want something that is comprehensive and reliable). Right now, I'm working on running a science fiction game, but I'm trying to get a firm grasp of the system before I run my own games.
