Many people have trouble downloading PMD Editor and getting it to work, so I thought it would be best to make my first blog of this issue.

★How to download PMD Editor★
You can download PMD Editor at…  (VPVP Wiki)
The ones at the top are the latest versions.
Please download the latest versions because the old ones suck ducky eggs.
When you see "403 Error - Forbidden" please highlight the URL and press enter.
The .zip file should pop up.  When it does, extract it and place it in one of you're folders. (I put mine in my downloads folder next to MMD)
If you need to extract something, I recommend downloading

★How to get PMD Editor to work★
If PMD Editor gives you an error when you try to open it or a model (etc),
then you have to download the following components.… framework 2.0 or Higher)
You can just google it for a later ver.
:icongoogleitplz:… X/Direct 3D)
Some versions will not work unless you have this particular version of Direct X, the one with Direct 3D.

You don't necessarily need to set you're system locale to Japanese.
It's only required for the older versions of PMD Editor ( and below).

Any questions?

I cant open it. my computer asks what program i need to use to open it......
It doesn't open at all. I got the newest version. PMX editor, and it says that it's can't be loaded.
I tried so many versions and only the limited english one works (I can't do much there are missing options).
Please help.
