Download that and copy the files into your 5e folder within hero lab.

If you don't know where that is, open the editor and click file open. The folder it opens is where all the files need to go.

From HL click Tools > Show Editor. Then File > Open Data File.

Open COM_5ePack_VGtM - Races.user

Click the Race tab then the Race tab and just have a look at the races listed. Have you copy of the book next to you and compare the two. You will notice very quickly how it works.

Probably the hardest bit about Races is the Racial Special Abilities. If you click that button you will see it links to other 'things'. You can see those other things by changing to the 'Racial Special' Tab.

Of course there are complex parts of the editor. But just opening the editor and looking at pre-existing things can teach you a hell of alot.

Even if you enter in the skeleton of something and don't put any Eval scripts in. That's still useful to the Community as we can just ask the more experienced users to finish it off and get the coding elements functional.
So I was able to open it but I got this just before it opened:

"Warning! This file is not present in the folder for the active game system. You may view the contents of the file, but not modify it."

Is this normal for stuff that hasn't been released yet or did I do something wrong?

Sounds like you opened the file from the wrong location. It needs to be in your 5e folder. From the editor if you click file open that's the folder.

Log into github as noted in @Daplunk's signature and either post a bug or if you have the time, edit the file yourself. Either way, the community benefits.

How does the community benefit if they edit it themselves?

From a personal edit to a file on their own computer?
