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?

Which PMX version do you use?
And can you make a screenshot of the error message?

Just a thing you could try out: In the later versions of PMX the editor always throws error messages at you when you start. When you keep pressing enter, then after like 20 - 30 messages PMX finally opens and works fine.

The version of the program I have is 0139. I would be glad if anyone helped me... anyway sorry for bad english çwç

I downloaded almost everything on here but no matter what I download, do or what version I am using, The PMD/PMX editor keeps on saying I need Direct 3DX9 was not found but I downloaded it! I tried downloading it again/before and it couldn't because there was an  error. When I checked the error, it said it was already in there.

Can't help but feel there are patches missing for you. I would unistall direct x and start from Direct x 9 and update from there and see if that fixes anything. Make sure you make it to 11 and yes it works cause my laptop has it. Sadly i am not on my laptop atm since it needs to be fixed (Fan change) so i wont be much use to you but i try the method and see if there is a change :(

MISSING DLL ERROR FIX 12/25/2013
For people with Windows 7/8 there is a very important step you need to do in avoiding the missing .dll error pop ups at the start of PMD or PMX editors installation.
Here are the steps you need to take

1. Download the file but DO NOT UNZIP IT YET. (If you have the Missing .dll errors now you need to re-download the folder and do these steps!)
2. Right Click on the folder and click properties.
3. "This file came from another computer and might be blocked to help protect this computer." When you see this message you want to click the "Unblock" button.
4. Now you can Unzip your folder and there will NEVER be a missing .dll file ever again!

NO PMD VIEW WINDOW FIX (5/9/2014): 
If you receive an ERROR (in is in Japanese FYI) at the start of PMD Editor opening that does NOT allow the PMD View Window to open, then you will need to update all the programs with the links below. BUT FIRST DOWNLOAD ALL THE LINKS BELOW THIS UPDATE, IF YOU DON'T THESE UPDATES WILL NOT WORK. THANK YOU!

It seems that you might need to update Net Framework, C++, and direct X 9.
Please download the following three updates after installing the MAIN program links below:

www.microsoft.com/en-us/downlo…
www.microsoft.com/en-us/downlo…
www.microsoft.com/en-us/downlo…


Watch the OLD VIDEO TUTORIAL (I suggest you watch the newer one above though!)
Click Here:www.youtube.com/watch?v=AybrLw…

Where you Download the program:
Direct Site Link:kkhk22.seesaa.net/article/2829…
(Scroll down until you find PMD Editor 0.1.3.9 or if you want PMX Editor)

PROGRAMS YOU ABSOLUTELY NEED TO RUN PMD EDITOR 0.1.3.9/PMX EDITOR
The following files must be double clicked and installed: C++, Net framework, and Direct X 9.0 (just like you would install a video game or another program like Firefox). The only thing that just needs to be extracted is PMX or PMD editor. PLEASE DO NOT JUST STICK THESE PROGRAM FILES INTO THE FOLDER OF PMX/PMD EDITOR. THAT DOESN'T DO ANYTHING!


NET FRAMEWORK 4.0 (ALREADY INCLUDED FOR WINDOWS 8, IF YOU ARE A WINDOWS 8 USER PLEASE DO NOT DOWNLOAD.)
Free Microsoft Download:www.microsoft.com/en-us/downlo…
I recommend Downloading NET Framework 3.5 first:www.microsoft.com/en-us/downlo…
(THEN INSTALL 4.0)

DIRECT X 9.0 or up
Microsoft Download:www.microsoft.com/en-us/downlo…
IF YOU HAVE WINDOWS 8 DOWNLOAD THIS LINK INSTEAD OF THE ONE ABOVE. ALSO DOWNLOAD THIS ONE EVEN IF YOU DON'T HAVE WINDOWS 8!!!: www.microsoft.com/en-us/downlo…

C++ REDISTRIBUTION PACKAGE 2010 (ALREADY INCLUDED FOR WINDOWS 8, IF YOU ARE A WINDOWS 8 USER PLEASE DO NOT DOWNLOAD.)
(You need to check if you computer is 32/64 bit for this package. Just because you have Windows 7/8 doesn't mean that you have a 64 bit computer. Please check!)
Microsoft Download: 
This is 32 Bit (also known as x86) (For Windows XP/7):www.microsoft.com/en-us/downlo…
This is 64 Bit (Windows 7/8):www.microsoft.com/en-us/downlo…
(YOU ABSOLUTELY NEED THIS! IF YOU DO NOT DOWNLOAD THIS, PMD EDITOR WILL CRASH BEFORE START UP. OLD VERSIONS OF C++ 2008 ARE NOT SUPPORTED!)

Seriously that's it now! I know it is many downloads but they are all safe and free because they are from MICROSOFT.

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...

If you downloaded any C++ you will have to reboot your pc after installing for it to take effect. 
Make sure you .net framework is enabled too.

Install direct x 9. If ou get an error saying it failed thats ok cause it was trying to update whats already at its latest but it will give you the proper components to run pmd properly. Also make sure your .net framework is enabled. Yes 4.5 works fine (If you have windows 8)

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.

Make sure you downloaded direct x 9 so it can give you the components you need out of it. It wont install if you have the latest version already but it WILL still give you the components you need to run PMD. Make sure .net Framework is enabled as well.
