If it passes the tests, it IS installed.

Nab is a compiler for a computer programming language. The language
itself is designed to allow programs to be written to do useful things
for molecular modeling and related activities. The nab language is
described in the AmberTools documentation.

Nab itself won't solve any problem for you, you need to write a
program to do what you want. (But antechamber, ptraj, etc in
AmberTools will directly solve the problems they were designed for.)
