Turns out that the required files for the slider are NOT included in the Hellosixty download zip file :(
Pretty poor Q/C if you ask me, especially since several other people reported the exact same problem.
I downloaded Hellosonar, which did have the correct files,copied them across and now all is working.
I must say I have been under whelmed with the support thus far ....
