You will have to install both the Genesis theme framework along with the Richard child theme. To do so, log into your WordPress Dashboard.
Go to Appearance –> Add New Themes
- Click on Upload
- Locate the genesis.zip file from your local computer and then click the “Install Now” button.
- Activate the newly added theme.
- Once the Genesis Framework is installed, you can load the child theme.
- Follow the same process for the child theme as you did Genesis.
NOTE: Do not install the child theme prior to installing Genesis.
Read the StudioPress introduction to Genesis for a more detailed tutorial at:

Here is a blog post we published on the topic:
Installing the Genesis Framework and Child Theme
If you installed a child theme before Genesis, make sure you delete the child theme before trying to install Genesis. It allows you to start with a clean slate and provides a smooth installation process.
