On the CD, in the Extras folder, you'll see a sub-folder named Brushes.
Inside that folder are Brush Library folders containing Brush Category folders and same-name 30 x 30 pixel Brush Category icon image files.
The simplest way to install these is to copy and paste the Brush Library folder(s) into the following folder:
C: > Program Files > Corel > Painter12 > Brushes
Everything in the Brush Library folder(s) will then be automatically installed in the correct locations.
When Painter 12 was first released, there were some problems when we installed custom (or Extra) brushes into the User folder. Painter 12 went haywire and wrote extra folders into the User folder whenever we switched brush variants (or brush categories). This mess may have been solved by now, I'm not sure, but it's safer to install in the application/program folder (path above) until you're sure that bug is gone now.
If you do find out the bug is completely gone, the appropriate path to your User folder is:
[User Name] > AppData > Roaming > Corel > Painter 12 > [Workspace Name] > Brushes
