MMD 9.26


Designed for newer computers, MMD 9.26 is the latest version of MikuMikuDance:

and also the 64-bit MMD is available:

Download MMD 9.26. It is a 6.5mb download ZIP file. I SAVEd it to my Desktop. When you have it, open that zip folder and click the command “Extract All”. I just agreed to the defaults and found a new folder on my desktop containing MikuMikuDance … ready to run. I dropped the ZIP folder into the MMD folder just to keep it. There is no “installing” MMD. It sits in its folder on your desktop, ready to use. If you decide you don’t want to keep it, just drag the folder into the Recycle Bin … there is no “uninstall”.

——- Getting Error Statements? You are not alone!

The “Configuration Error” is most popular

I have A Solution!

Read the new article about fixing the Failed to start Configuration error

The “failed to start because the application configuration is incorrect” statement had me confused until I discovered the solution. Read the new article on to fix the problem.

The “Missing DLL Error” has Two Versions!

Sometimes a user needs to update his/her DirectX files.


Go to the LearnMMD Downloads Page to get your … a 6.5mb download.

I expect the new version, Miku Miku Dance 9.10, will run well and be able to use the mountains of accessories, models, and effects created for MMD 7.39. I am looking forward to learning about “what’s new” in MMD 9.26.

    Hi, Im getting the “configuration error”.my OS is windows 7 Ultimate x64. Tried installing microsoft c++ 2008 and 2010 for both 32/64 system but still no luck. Then I tried changing the program compatibality but still not working. Any other solution? I can only run the 7.39 version.

    I have no answer … 7.39 is still what I can run … and 7.94 works for me after I did the C++ 2008 thing. The newer versions give me the Configuration error. I have no answer yet.

    Have you downloaded the C++ redistributables? See the notes about that on LearnMMD (linked-to from our Downloads page) and the 64-bit links are also on the VPVP page:

    I had this on my Windows 7 but recently redownloaded for Windows 8 and get a “side-by-side” configuration error

  9. Reggie_Dentmore
    19 November 2013, 6:02 pm

    Many MMDers get that “side-by-side configuration error”. We have identified a few things to check. See the Downloads page, in the write-up about downloading MMD 8.03 are links to troubleshooting articles.

    20 November 2013, 9:49 pm

    The troubleshooting articles I found (unless I clicking the wrong thing) are for DLL errors and a configuration error on Windows XP which doesn’t use side-by-side, only Windows 7 and Windows 8 had the side by side feature (Windows 8 side-by-side a bit different from Windows 7). I tried googling a solution with no luck.

    well It actually was easy to upgrade an existing installation of MMD 7.39 to the 8.10 version by specifically extracting and patching the contents from the zip file to where they are already located. 8.10 requires C++ Runtime 2008 installed. Runs smoothly on Windows XP SP3.

  14. Bernd P
    12 February 2014, 1:24 pm

    For MMD 8.10 64bit I have the recommendation: No XPx64 (crappy). No Vista x64 (poor performance), Use it on at least Windows 7 x64 or WIndows 8 x64 at minimum of 4 GB. More Memory is welcomed if you plan to mix effects, long sequences, multi-model animation.

  15. Reggie_Dentmore
    12 February 2014, 5:59 pm

    Thanks! I had assumed x64 would BE for Windows 7 and above. I am surprised people would try to run it 64-bit on older OS machines.

  16. Reggie_Dentmore
    12 February 2014, 6:05 pm

    For 8.10, to upgrade from MMD 8.08, I only copy/pasted the one new file from the new DATA Folder into my old data folder. It’s the only newer file in that new DATA folder. But I did open the new MODEL folder and copy/paste ALL of the files into my old existing Model folder so as to catch all of the needed parts for the new Luka model.

    when I downloaded it and tried to render a video, it still says:
    ‘cannot read MMDxShow-> dll

    there is not ‘MMDxShow-> dll’ in ‘Data’ folder.
    please download newest ver. of MikuMikuDance.’

    and I downloaded this several times and it still wont let me render!!

  21. Reggie_Dentmore

    Try downloading the MMDxShow.dll we offer on our Downloads page. Drop it into your MMD DATA folder.

    when I wanted to render a video in mmd (the latest one), it gives me an error saying:
    “cannot read MMDxShow-> dll
    there is not ‘MMDxShow-> dll” in “Data” folder.
    please download newest ver. of MikuMiku Dance.”

    I’ve downloaded mmd twice, it gives me the same error. I looked through the comments on here and just downloaded the MMDxShow.dll that you offered on the Downloads page and it still gave me the same error message. I made sure I put it in the “Data” folder and I even checked to make sure it was in there before I ran MMD. It was there, yet it gave me the error message.

    I don’t know what to do at this point. None of the other MMD versions I’ve had did this to me.

    Everytime I click on MikuMikuDance.exe the new one,
    I get something saying I may not have the permission to open it, then Norton scans it and removes it. Can someone help me with this?

  25. Reggie_Dentmore
    07 August 2014, 8:17 am

    That’s a new one! … That happens after you have extracted the files from the ZIP?? … you DO have to “Extract All” from the Zip folder before you can run MMD.

    Hm. I updated from 7. 39 to 9.12×64 and I noticed that I can’t use effects because the MME menu is missing. I used Diffusion 7 through the accessory box before, but now it just shows a red square. Does this mean I have to update my old MME files or is something else the problem?

  27. Reggie_Dentmore
    09 August 2014, 10:13 am

    You will need the 64-bit MME … see our Downloads page for the MME v036x64.

    Is it a 64-bit / 32-bit question … have you tried both versions of MMD?

  30. Jarek
    16 September 2014, 11:34 am

    What is the difference between the normal version and 64-Bit? My laptop can easily run the 64-Bit version but is it really better?

    Am I the only one who get error like this? :

    “The application was unable to start correctly (0xc000020c). Click OK to close the application.”

    I don’t understand what happened though, I tried to search for it in Google, there’s no solution. Can someone help me please?

  34. Reggie_Dentmore
    11 October 2014, 7:56 am

    Search for only 0xc000020c
    I see many results showing possible solutions. Could be security software issue … could be a computer registry issue … could be a 32-bit VS 64-bit issue … ?

    Sorry for asking, but does anyone know where the MikuMikuEffect for MikuMikuDance 9.24 is? I tried MikuDan’s blog, but I get a weird page that talks about coupons..

  36. KillerBeer
    20 October 2014, 12:46 pm is the homepage of MME and it has the latest version 0.37 (the Downloads section of LearnMMD only contains 0.36). Read the article for detailed installation instructions.

    I’ve been trying to fix this for 3 weeks now. I lost all of my files on my computer so I’m trying to download everything back. Right now I’m just trying to get MMD. I’m kinda tired of this already… I’m jumping from error to error. First I got the dll error, but I fixed that. Then I got the side-by-side configuration, but I fixed that too. Now I have the error “The application was unable to start correctly (0xc000007b). Click ok to close the application” What’s going on here? I have MMD 9.24 version and Windows 7 computer. I tried with MMD 8.01 too but it does the same thing. I have the latest Directx and the dll I was missing. What now? I’m just about ready to give up on MMD.

    First I got the “d3dx9_32.dll” error. I downloaded the dll file and now it says “The application was unable to start correctly (0xc000007b)”. I have Windows 8.1, and I have the latest DirectX 11, Microsoft .NET framework, and both C++ downloads. Can someone find a fix please? I’m dying to use MMD.

    You need libraries for an *earlier* version of DirectX. Find them here:

    so whats the solution for “The application was unable to start correctly (0xc015004).” ?

  45. Reggie_Dentmore
    17 February 2015, 9:04 pm

    That’s a new one … I did a Google search for “error message 0xc015004″ and found many items. They all seem to relate to an install issue. NOTE that MikuMikuDance does NOT install. You simply unzip the folder and double click the MikuMikuDance.exe to run MMD.

    yea well its not my first time running it. ive used it before and it was perfectly running. i stopped using it after a while but today i wanted to use it again. it gave me the error. so i thought i need to update it so i downloaded the latest one but that didnt help either… im guessing it has something to do with c++ 2005

  47. Reggie_Dentmore
    20 February 2015, 8:18 am

    Yes … The C++ 2008 seems to be required, too.

  48. Rez
    20 February 2015, 9:47 am

    it seems that i cant install either 2005 nor 2008 c++… i get some errors. do happen to know why? i tried googling and people said i need to do windows update but that too isnt working for me. i think my system is all messed up… but i could still play any other games fine tho

  49. Reggie_Dentmore
    20 February 2015, 4:19 pm

    Try the MMD 7.39 we offer from our downloads page. It is the older version, but it should run for you … and you will have the chance to try out MikuMikuDance. Open MMD 7.39, and then see our Getting Started page to learn how to run it.

  50. Rez
    22 February 2015, 10:47 pm

    YES ITS WORKING AGAIN! TY SO MUCH! haha i tried what u said and downloaded the old 7.39 version :) ty

    Did you see the “Step-by-Step” page? (Click the button for it at the top of this page.) It tells you how to unzip the folder and start the program. Please email me directly if you’d like personal help:
