Mods not appearing in VCMM

I extract the VCM file to the folder "...\vcmm\mods\vcm\". I run VCMM, the mod is listed, I click on it once to select it, the 'Install' button becomes active, and then I click 'Install'.
Looking at your screen shot, it appears that you are browsing to the folder "mods". Try going one folder further to "vcm". That should work for you. If it does not work, MAYBE the VCMM has to be installed in your Vice City game directory, but I really do not think that it matters. If I remember correctly, you have it installed in the default setup location, which should be okay. (I installed VCMM where I felt like putting it.)
The only other thing that I can think of is if you have to be logged on to Windows as an administrator. For the heck of it, and so I could pay closer attention to what's what, I associated vcm files with VCMM with "Windows - Tools - Folder Options - File Types".
If none of these suggestions work for you then I am stumped.

Update: Reinstalled just now. I already had it in the directory before so It's still not working.

If I think of any other possibilities I will post them here. If you have not done so already, try looking through the Mod Installation Help threads in the forums. I have seen threads around the web of other VCMM users who were having problems, but I never bothered to read them because I have not had any troubles with it.

Wait, I just had a thought. You open the downloaded archive with WinRar, then browse in the extraction path to the folder "vcm" and extract the files, right? WinRar MAY be preserving the authors folder structure from the archive and VCMM can not find the VCM file. In other words, extract the archive to a folder then try manually dumping the VCM file in the "vcm" folder instead of letting WinRar extract everything. Then you know for sure that it in the right location and that WinRar has not added extra folders. You never know, it can happen sometimes with archivers.
I am really hopeful about this possibility.
