I have had multiple posts regarding this issue, so it is now being added to the FAQ/Tutorial board for WP.

If you are getting the "missing style.css" error when trying to install a Shape 5 Theme, you are most likely using the wrong download.

Shape 5 Wordpress Themes have 2 downloads available:

 - One download is the Theme by itself - That's the one to install through WP Admin.

 - The other Download is the Site Shaper.
 - - A Site Shaper is a full WordPress installation with sample data, not something you can install through the admin

The standalone Theme downloads will always have the style.css file and anything else needed to install and activate the theme.  The "missing style.css" error means that you are trying to install the Shaper instead of the Theme.

Download the correct file and try again.  It will work.
