          Go careful… go slow… please explain what you are doing, step-by-step. … What you SHOULD do is extract-all from that downloaded MME v037 ZIP folder… and see the regular folder… open that regular folder… and see the three DLL files. Hold down the CONTROL key while you click on each of the three DLL files so that all three are selected. Now drag those three files into your MMD folder. There you go… that’s all there is to it. … Be sure that you have matching versions of MMD and MME… both have to be 32-bit (regular) or both have to be 64-bit… no mixing!

          If it’s not working… I cannot help you. … Does MikuMikuDance MMD run fine for you, otherwise?

            For me, the program itself runs smoothly, I have all the MME files in the folder, and have Direct x 9 installed.

            I am not sure whether this is just a Windows 10 issue though.

    I downloaded MME and ‘installed’ it correctly. It appears at the top when I open MMD, all seems normal, but the only option i get whe i open Effect Mapping it’s the “Main” box, I can open “FogMap”, ” LighMap”, “EnvLightMap”, etc.
    Does anyone knows how to fix this or why this happens?

    • February 19, 2018    

      There are two basic ways to use MME effects. One is to load an item (usually an .x accessory, though some are working with .pmd/.pmx controllers) that acts as an anchor for an effect that works on the whole setting. You don’t need Effect Mapping panel for that. Another is for effects (typically shaders) that apply to a particular model. Then you load a model first, then find it in Effect Mapping and apply the effect to it. It depends on the particular effect whether one or another mode is used.

    Uhh can you please help me? I just downloaded MMD version 9.26 64bit and MME version 0.37 64bit, and now it’s giving me the error “Initialize Error: failed to load effect file. Please check your video card capability.” then causing MMD to crash.

    Oh, and the PC I’m using is a Asus ROG Strix GL753.

      Check if your graphic card’s drivers are updated to the latest version; also see if DirectX 9.0c and two MS Visual C++ Redistributable packages are installed (especially the former).

      What effect do you try to use and how do you load it?

    Hello, I have MMD 9.26 and MME v037 and I followed the steps to put MME in MMD and still no MME! I have tried re downloading MME and everything. Yes, the 3 dll folders are placed in the same folder as MMD. Could anybody tell me how to fix this?

    ive run into a weird problem with my MMD and MME. i have all of the right files in the proper places, i have the proper C++ installed. MMD + MME both worked fine until recently (and i dont know what the trigger was that made it stop) but now if i have the d3d9.dll file in the folder with my mikumikudance.exe it WILL NOT open at all. no error message, no nothing. however once i changed the dll filename to d3d9_32.dll, mikumikudance.exe opens fine but doesnt have MME installed at all. i tried to keep the d3d9_32.dll and add the d3d9.dll file in thinking that maybe it would work but it did not. MMD refused, once again, to open at all. i tried this with different versions of MMD and i used the proper MME for the version. im running this all on windows 8 64-bit and i know its not a bad graphics card because it was working just fine a month ago. i havent seen anyone mention a problem like this (or i just havent been deep enough to notice?) so im not sure how else to go about this. does anyone know what caused this issue? or how to amend it? thanks in advance for your time and help!

      You really shouldn’t need to have any extra DLLs, except for the three MME Dlls, floating around in your MMD folder… that d3d9_32.dll DLL should have been properly installed into the system32 folder c:>Windows>system32 when you ran that DirectX runtime update. Your MMD folder should look like this:

    For some reason MMD/MME stopped saving the .emm files automatically, there used to be generated one with each .pmm file, but a wile ago, it just kinda stopped.
    I should have the newest version of both MMD and MME (MMD v9.26 and MME v037), and I tried to replace the .dll files for MME, butt it didn’t seem to work.

    • Reggie_Dentmore Reggie_Dentmore

      So, no .emm files… is that a problem? “:o) …You might try a fresh download of the MMD program; something may have fritzed-out in your MMD program…

    So, it wasn’t working and I figured out that I have version 5.24 of MMD. I want to know if I uninstall MMD and get the newer version, is there a way I can save my motions?

    • March 21, 2017    

      Yes, simply move the UserFile folder from the old install into new one and you’ll be fine.

    Hi! I have the latest version of MMD. I copied and pasted all of the .dll files into it. Yet, it won’t show up! Could you help me with this error, please?

    • March 20, 2016    

      Dumb check: are the *real* .dll files placed in the MMD folder or only shortcuts to them (the latter have a little arrow in the corner of their icons). Is MME of the same 64-bit/32-bit type as MMD itself? Are two C++ runtimes installed as the Troubleshooting page suggests (*also* of the same type)?

    Hi, I recently got a Windows 10 laptop and now MME won’t work. It says:
    “Initialize Error: failed to load default effect file. Please check the video card capability.” And then the program stops working. I put them exactly where the pictures said, and I even reinstalled the MME. Should I try reinstalling MMD and then try it again?

    • Reggie_Dentmore Reggie_Dentmore
      December 26, 2015    

      Starting from the beginning… You download MikuMikuDance… you do not install it… you simply unzip the downloaded folder and then open MikuMikuDance.exe to run MikuMikuDance, MMD. … If you want to add MME, You unzip the MME folder you downloaded and then drag-and-drop the three DLL files into your main MMD folder so they are sitting right next to your MikuMNikuDance.exe … yes? … It might be that your computer cannot run MME… if you have that “video card capability” error, you may, indeed have a weak video card that will need to be replaced with a more powerful graphics card.

        I have the same problem. It worked when I DIDN’T have a video card, but now that I do I can’t even use MME. So how am i suppose to use mmd without MME now?

      Tell us all about it. If you drop those three DLL files into the main MMD folder, it works. … Yes?

        No, it doesn’t. I’m having the same difficulty

    July 26, 2015    

    Umm still having problems with this not working, I mean it shows up as if it’s good but it doesn’t actually allow you to do anything and when you try to toggle it on and off it doesn’t seem to work, I tried 0.36 and it doesn’t appear and my friend who also has the v9.26 64bit MMD also says he can’t get it to work and suffers the same issues.

    Was something done wrong with the installation?

    • Reggie_Dentmore Reggie_Dentmore
      July 26, 2015    

      Could it be a 32-bit/64-bit problem?? … Did you download the right MME? There is no “installation” to speak of… you just drop those three DLL’s into the MMD folder… and you’re done.

      We aim to be help… so if you still have problems, please email me and we’ll see what we can find-out for you… reggiedentmore@aol.com
