Karamba3D should automatically install in the correct directory for the corresponding Rhino version. However if Karamba3D does not show up in Grasshopper, check the correctness of the installation path and change it if necessary. On some machines it is "...\Rhinoceros 5 (64-bit)\Plug-ins" and not "...\Rhinoceros 5.0 (64-bit)\Plug-ins". Please take care of the ".0".
