Extension Library

I have installed the Extension library locally in my Notes Designer client so I can learn more about it. I am trying to preview the sample database using the URL below
It won't load the Admin page and instead the browser reports back the error Cannot find the library com.ibm.xsp.extlib.library, required by the application /xpages/XPagesExt.nsf.
I have verified that the plugin are installed using the About Domino Designer screen and clicking on plugins.
I have also manually unpacked the contents of the updateSite.zip file into the following directory located in your Notes data directory and restart Designer. c:\program files\ibm\lotus\notes\data\workspace\applications\eclipse
Can anyone help me resolve this error when trying to preview a local database that uses an XPage that uses the Extension Library features/controls?
Also, if I decide to use some Ext Lib controls in my own XPage application for my company, I know I must install it on the server, but do I also need to install it on each client too?
Thanks for your help!

Re: Extension Library
Thank you Thomas. That did the trick!
One last question, if I decide to deploy an Xpage application that uses some of the Extension Library controls on my company server. I know I need to install the Ext Lib on the server but what about on all of our client machines. Is it necessary to install the Ext Library on every client if the server has it installed?

Re: Extension Library
If your xpage is to be displayed in a webbrowser from the server then the extlib only need to be installed on the server.
I actually do not know what is required if you want to run extlib on the notes client, check extlib documentation for this.
