Use the Extension Manager which is accessed from the Tools menu. There is
 "+" button. Click it and select the .lce file.

FWIW the installer stack that came with the download installed everything
successfully for me in LC 9. On the plus side there are docs for the
widgets in the Dictionary. Unfortunately when I try to test the search
widget in the iOS simulator the widget doesn't render. It just says
"SearchText (unlicensed)".
