Activating Add-on, getting: ImportError: No module named 'bpy.utils.previews', 'bpy.utils' is not a package

Add-on Pro Lighting Skies Demo

This message error pops up when I follow the steps on how to download. Somebody please help me. I followed Andrew Price's directions on his website, Blender Guru, but it will not work.

You need to update to Blender 2.75. Versions prior to this don't have bpy.utils.previews which is used for custom ui icons and preview images. You will also need to install the add-on again, probably.

You're either having trouble importing the addon correctly, or there's a bug in the addon.

Best way to import the addon is to leave the addon package inside a ZIP file and then choose the install from file option.

If, after loading the addon this way, you still get this error, you need to report it back to Andrew.
