Addictive Drums is a Virtual Instrument plugin, and can't be run as a "standalone" software (that's why there's no startup icon for it). You load it into a host software such as Cubase/Logic/ProTools etc.

See complete list of supported hosts at http://www.xlnaudio.com/index.php?page= ... =systemreq

If you just want to try it out, you can use a free host such as VSTHost for PC:

or VSTLord for Mac:

All samples in Addictive Drums are encoded to our custom audio format. This way we can offer maximum performance as well as high quality audio. These files can not be opened in Reason.
