how do I manually install an extention (.tgz) in Magento 2? I tried to unzip it and copy the folders (app, lib, var) incl. content to the Magento root directory and merged them with the existing. Then I flushed the Magento cache, logged out and in but the extension doesn't show up.
Its a third party extention (Helium V connector) not available in the Magento Connect store.
Tried www.myshop.com/downloader but this seams to be only available in 1.x
I set the permissions to 777 to exclude permissionproblems (its a local testing installation).
In my .tgz archive there is a file named package.xml in the root directory next to app, lib and var. I pasted it into the root folder of my Magento installation. Is it ok?
Thank you in advance and best regards.

I'm not sure but that module could be for Magento 1 only.
If you module has some directory like:
app/code/local or app/code/community
That's for Magento 1 only.
