[Pro] Missing Actions

I have installed the Pro and I discovered that no Actions have been installed in the Action folder in the Library, nor they exist when I try to use them. I need the Rollover or Quicktime Extra. Can anyone help???

Actions are sensitive to what you have selected when you try to invoke
them. For the QT Extras, make sure you have clicked on (highlighted) a
layout box that holds a QuickTIme Movie, then look in the Item /
Actions menu for QuickTime Extras.

A lot of these Actions are built into Freeway (technically speaking
the Freeway application is a “bundle”, which is a particular kind of
folder that the Mac OS treats as if it was a single file). If you want
to find the Actions that are a part of Freeway itself, you will need
to locate the Freeway icon in the Finder, click once on that icon,
then Control-click or right-click and choose the Show Package Contents
contextual menu option. The core Actions are in Applications/Freeway 5
Pro.app/Contents/Shared Support/Actions/Standard.fwactionb – which
is, itself, another kind of bundle and needs to be opened in a similar
manner. It’s all a bit like a Russian nesting doll.

Actions can also be stored in different places in OSX

Macintosh HD>LIbrary>Application Support>Freeway 5>Actions and

User>LIbrary>Application Support>Freeway 5>Actions

Actions installed under 1 user will not be available to others.

My personal preference is to install all my actions (if they are not part of the application bundle) in the first location so that they are available to all users.
