Download the Latest Version of MikuMikuDance:
MMD 9.26 from LearnMMD.com!

VPVP Released MMD 9.26 December 17th, 2014

Download the latest version of MikuMikuDance MMD 9.26

MMD 9.26 runs great for most users … MMD, MikuMikuDance for Windows XP, Windows Vista, Windows 7 and Windows 8 … but we are getting reports of a couple of different kinds of errors, as well.


Download MMD 9.26 from LearnMMD, open it up and see what you have … and then hurry back to LearnMMD.com for MMD tutorials!

Download MMDx64 64-bit MikuMikuDance MMD 9.26x64

64-Bit MMD 9.26



A while back, when MMD 8.11×64 was released, we got reports that it didn’t run on 64-bit machines … but 8.10×64 DID run … so, if you have too many problems with the latest 64-bit version, you might try running MMD 8.10×64. You can still download MMD 8.10x64 from LearnMMD.com.

Editors Note 10/26/2015:
The VPVP page recommends that you download and install:

Regular MikuMikuDance
If cannot move, please install following runtime package.
Microsoft Visual C++ 2005 Redistributable Package
Microsoft Visual C++ 2008 Redistributable Package
DirectX End-User Runtime

64-Bit MikuMikuDance 
If cannot move, please install following runtime package.
Microsoft Visual C++ 2008 Redistributable Package (x64)
Microsoft Visual C++ 2010 Redistributable Package (x64)
DirectX End-User Runtime

LearnMMD still has 64-bit MMD 8.10×64 available for download!
Click to Download MikuMikuDance 8.10 64-bit while we wait for a fix to the bugs in MMD 811x64. Hosted by LearnMMD.com

64-Bit MMD 8.10

Download MMD 8.10 64-bit to run on your modern 64-bit Windows computer. MMD 8.10 includes the new model, LUKA v1.0


MMD 8.11 and each of the newer versions, including MMD 9.26, include Luka v1.1
If you choose to download old MMD 8.10 so as to get Luka 1.0 … be sure to put her files into a separate folder and name the folder Animasa Luka_1-0, or something, because Luka 1.1 in the current versions of MMD uses the exact same file names … and you risk converting her into the old 1.0 version if you simply drop the old files into the model folder.

MikuMikuDance is a free 3-D animation program. Download the free 3D animation program: MikuMikuDance!

My new WalkTest8 file shows that Walking is getting easier!

My new walk test file is cleaner than my previous motion file. See it at http://learnmmd.com/EasyWalk . I started by sliding the model back a bit so the toes are on a ruled line … registered. Then I moved out 15 frames and advanced the Center and the Left Leg IK to the next line. Registered. I COPIED the Left Leg IK position. I then went out 15 frames and PASTEd that Left Leg IK data. Then I moved the Center and the Right Leg IK out to the next ruled line, registered, and COPIED the Right Leg IK position. Advanced another 15 … and so on. This created a nice sliding/skating motion. Then I went back and added some foot and hip action. Go ahead and download this little file and play it for yourself!

    Actually, the download in the link I have provided won’t install unless you are running Windows 98, Windows Millennium Edition, Windows 2000, Windows XP or Windows Server 2003 Family, meaning that Vista/7/8/8.1/10 users (like me) are kinda out of luck.

    I should’ve checked the download myself.

    November 20, 2015    

    The DirectX 9.0c link you have provided now redirects to the download page for the Windows10 upgrade.
    Here is a working link, and I advise you to replace that link with this one:

    I downloaded the recent version. 9.26.
    I had a model and dragged it from the WinRAR evaluation copy to the load model window. The model worked the first time. I exited MMD, relaunched it and its gone. Also, a friend gave me a model he created of Merry Nightmare and I did the same thing and its gone. How do I keep models in the load model window?

    • Silent Headset Silent Headset
      November 11, 2015    

      You should extract the model first. Here’s what you need to do:

      -Extract the RAR / Zip file to a separate folder. Just right-click on the file, and choose “extract to ” from the list
      -A new folder should appears in the same window. This folder contains the content of the Zip/RAR file
      -Right-click the folder, and choose “copy” or “cut”
      -Now open the directory where you put your MMD data, the easiest way is to right-click on the MMD icon, and choose “open file location”. You’ll be taken to a new window. Now there should be a folder there named “Userfile”. Open it.
      -Inside, there should be a folder named “Models”. Open the folder
      -Now simply right-click and choose “paste”. Your new model’s folder should appear right away
      -Now open MMD, choose load model, and when you are taken to the load model window, choose the folder you’ve just moved. Inside, your model should be sitting there, waiting to be loaded ^^

      Should you want to load the model again, just re-navigate to the model’s folder. The folder and it’s content won’t go anywhere, unless you moved it again

      Hope that helps!

        That’s what i’m doing. It doesn’t tell you to ” extract to”. Either it’s “extract to a specified folder or “extract without confirmation”. This is starting to get on my nerves. I’m on Windows 7.
