I have never used CPS, but I guess the directories are used in the
same way as normal Zope. Adding anything here would only affect CPS,
not any Zope 2.9.4 instances.
This is the Products dir that is used by all Zope instances; it is a
part of core Zope . Normally only core Zope products should be here
and you should not add anything to it manually. But adding your own
products here *would* work I guess. Try it when everything else
When you create a new Zope instance, this is the Products directory
that gets copied to that instance. You could put some basic products
in here that you want to have in every new Zope instance that you
create. But: adding products here will *only* affect *new* instances,
not instances that you have already made.

These products should be added to the Zope instance. The directories
you mention above contain source code used by instances, but they are
not instances themselves.
I would expect the Zope instance to have been created in Documents and
Settings or in My Documents; but that is a guess. You could let
Windows search for any directories with the name 'Products'. That
should turn up some more hits. Or create a new Zope instance (maybe
call C:\Programme\Zope-2.9.4\bin\mkinstance or something like that)
and see where the instance is created.

It should be a folder called 'import' in the same directory as the
Products directory of your instance. It should be automatically
created for you when you create a new instance.

I hope this helps. My answers are based on my experience with Zope on
Linux though; Windows may handle things differently, so sorry if I am
putting you on the wrong track.
