Can't install the store themes

I get this when going to Presentation.

Installing Plugin from uploaded file: 145214_framemarket-1.5.1(1).zip

You'll need to activate a BuddyPress-compatible theme to take advantage of all of BuddyPress's features. We've bundled a default theme, but you can always install some other compatible themes or update your existing WordPress theme.

Unpacking the package…

Installing the plugin…

The package could not be installed. No valid plugins were found.

Plugin install failed.

and with the other option:

Installing Plugin from uploaded file: 145214_simplemarket-1.1.1.5.zip

    hi @RobertKwasny

    thanks for posting to the forum.

    Are you trying to upload a theme to the plugins area?

    themes need to be uploaded and installed from the themes area (dashboard > themes > add new)

    the other message "You'll need to activate a BuddyPress-compatible theme to take advantage of all of BuddyPress's features" means the theme you are using may not be fully compatible with BuddyPress, so some of the useful features of BuddyPress will not function in the theme.

    hope this helps.

    Thanks Vaughan,
    That was the issue... but that brings me to a new problem...
    I can't wipe out the theme I've been building for the shopping cart.
    (Which installing that theme immediately did and I deactivated it immediately)
    What do I have to do, install that theme in a subfolder with it's own WP installation?
    How can I have my current site and connect this shopping cart?
    Much Appreciated!!
