Once you have downloaded the package, the metaspline.dll and metaspling.afx files need to be extracted using a tool such as WinZip and placed in the plugins directory inside the directory that you installed OpenFX (eg. C:\OpenFX\plugins\). The DLL is the library that executes the action and the AFX files contain the text used in the Plugin Actions submenu of the Actions menu.

If you download the source, it should be extracted to the design directory in the openfx source distribution.

The packages also contain a documentation file explaining how to use this plugin and some example model files to demonstrate it.
