Already running MMD  and want to Upgrade to MMD 9.31? Read Reggie’s article as he explains …
How to Upgrade MMD 7.39 to MMD 9.31.


——- 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 LearnMMD.com 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 MikuMikuDanceE_v926.zip … a 6.5mb download.

I expect the new version, Miku Miku Dance 9.31, 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 9.31.

    which type if computer/laptop type in order to get MMD

      For best results, the computer needs to be a Windows PC… not Apple. Needs a good graphics card with at least 1gb cache. Needs a mouse… not a tablet. The more “power”, the better your experience will be.

    Does anyone know if the author will do more updates for MMD? or is 9.26 the last version?

    • April 25, 2017    

      We’re not in contact with the author of MikiMikuDance nor with anyone in Japanese MMD community (who might be better informed). From the looks of it, though, it seems that MMD development is on hiatus. No new versions of MMD are to be expected soon… and if those expectations are disproved, that will be a pleasant surprise to us all.

    Hi, I’m having some trouble with opening MMD.
    It keeps saying “The application has failed to start because its side-by-side configuration is incorrect.

    If I could get some help with this, I’d really appreciate it.

    heyo! this is my first time using mmd, but i have a little problem here! i use windows 10 and downloaded the newest version just as recommended but..when i download a NEW model and extract its folder/contents to the ‘model’ folder of the mmd folder already pre-made, I open up mmd to load/open(??) the file only for it to open said downloaded models folder revealing nothing within it…? the entire mmd app is saved under documents, if that helps. it’s really, really frustrating.

    • December 15, 2016    

      There are many various assets to MMD that have to be “loaded”, each with its own entrance. To load models, use the Model Manipulation Panel:

      If you don’t see one, press “to model” button in the lower left corner of the viewport.

    Hi, so using the latest version of mmd when I saving an animation I keep running into problems.
    1: When trying to change the video compression option the program crashes no matter what I do.

    2: When I do save the file as an .avi file the video wont play.

    Do you have any advice?

      When you DO save a video it won’t play. I have sometimes saved a video in a format that Windows Media Player will not open… but the QuickTime Player will open it. You might try that player. … How do you have a video to play when “the program crashes no matter what I do.”?

    I’m having a little trouble here, whenever I start mmd up it works for a little while before completely crashing. Now this hasn’t happened before in the 3 years I’ve had mmd and I’m wondering why it’s doing this all of a sudden. Could anyone help me out please.

      Try to download a fresh copy of MMD and install it into a separate folder. Does it do the same even without installing MME? If not, *after* installing MME?

      Update your graphic drivers to the latest version. Also see if your computer overheats. Blowing off the dust from coolers regularly is a necessary part of maintenance.

    HI! I just downloaded MMD 9.26 and I have windows 10. the problem is whenever i open the MMD it says something about ‘side-by-side’ and the thing is when i got to here and followed the instructions i needed but then DirectX 9 needs windows 7 and the other things that needed to be download…Do you have any solutions for that?

    I can’t even get MMD to download, let alone open. Why does the download link constantly fail? It’s not my internet’s fault.

    • June 14, 2016    

      Did you press a link on the Downloads page? Links on this page, if you use them, are supposed to take you there, not straight to the file. Or you can go to MMD’s home page and try to get it from there.

    I have widows 10
    How can I download MMD if I have windows 10?

    • May 26, 2016    

      Go to the Troubleshooting page, it has more detailed and newer instructions on installing MMD. Make sure to install *everything* that it recommends. Also make sure to unpack the MMD archive *not* into C:\Program Files, Downloads, Documents, or any other Windows-specific folders.

    Hi. Amazing program but there are afew errors… When I load a model that I created its says
    “Runtime Error
    Program : C…
    This application has requested the Runtime to terminate it in an unusual way”
    How can i fix this … thanks

    • April 1, 2016    

      Hmm, does MMD also do this for models you haven’t made? If it only does it with a model you made please check if everything is correct in the model. What kind of model is it? A PMD/PMX or a X?

    Well, i’m going to the point. I Downloaded MMD 9.26 ver., but when i’m going to open it appears a mesage saying “Create device failed!”.
    I already installed both Microsoft C++ (I wasn’t able to install DirectX because it says i already have a newer or equivalent version…maybe is that but i’m not sure)
    What can i do? (sorry if i have some mistakes with the grammar, i’m still learnig english /u\)

    • March 4, 2016    

      What are your computer’s specs? Particularly, the video card. Create device failed is an often case with insufficient hardware power. Still, you may want to update your drivers and see if it helps.

      Yes,DirectX of 9.0c version in particular is necessary. Which link did you use to get one? The one that gets you directx_Jun2010_redist.exe file is usually able to install missing files regardless of higher versions.

      Are you on Windows 10, per chance?

        Welp the computer isn’t really of my own, so i’m not sure (actually if of my mother and my father, but is the only computer on my house uwu)
        But that makes sense, because my computer it’s pretty old and doen’t have much of it…

        I suspected the DirectX thing Q3Q
        About the link i don’t know. To be honest i never see it :/ i’ll gonna search it in the programs and download that file.

        Thank you very much! :’3

        PD: and no, i actually have windows XP professional
