What brushes? Lightroom doesn't have customized brushes.

The trial shouldn't make any difference.

I too would ask what do you mean by installing brushes. Do you mean brush presets? Where did you get these from, Photoshop, an online source, where?

If you haven't already explored the LR interface and found where brush presets go, here is how to find them on my Windows 8 computer.

1) LR / Edit / Preferences / Presets / Show Lightroom Presets Folder
2) Open (double-click) the highlighted Lightroom folder under Adobe
3) Open (double-click) the Local Adjustment Presets folder

This is the folder where new presets are saved using the Save Current Settings as New Preset option in the Effect list at the top of the Adjustment Brush area, so I would assume you can just copy your presets into that folder.

This folder might be a different place if you have Save Presets with Catalog enabled.
