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 www6.atwiki.jp/vpvpwiki/pages/…  (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 www.7-zip.org/(7-zip)

★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.

msdn.microsoft.com/en-ca/netfr… framework 2.0 or Higher)
You can just google it for a later ver.
:icongoogleitplz:

www.microsoft.com/downloads/de… 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 (0.0.3.2 and below).

Any questions?

My PMD editor keeps crashing when I try to start up! I got all of the components on like 3 different computers and "PMD editor has stopped working" on all of them. What do I do?!  I'm going crazy because I know how to use PMDe and have all of my model parts ready but the program stops working on startup...

How can I open it? I know this is a dumb question probably, but i downloaded everything i need i think, but i just see many folders like Lib, plugin, _data, _plugin, etc. Is there a certain one I have to open for this to open up?

That's fine :3
I should elaborate though; Are you trying to get the original Japanese version to work, or the English? [If you don't know just let me know]

ConcreteAngel2014 Featured By Owner Feb 11, 2015  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
I believe it is English but I could be incorrect.

Make sure that the zip folder you downloaded wasn't blocked by your computer.

Right click on the Zip/Rar/7zip folder that you downloaded > Properties > Unblock > OK   Then re-unzip it.
