I have been searching Google, off and on, for days, trying to solve my MikuMikuDance 8.05 Configuration Error … and, today, I finally found it! Another video game’s forum had the answer: http://na.leagueoflegends.com/board/showthread.php?t=1084961

The writer indicated that what was missing was the C++ 2005 redistributables and its 2005 SP1.

Following previous leads, I had already installed Microsoft  C++ 2008 and 2010 redistributables … without solving my “configuration error” problem. I “removed” the 2010 version after I saw no effect. NOW I downloaded and installed the C++ 2005 and the 2005 SP1 versions and … MMD 8.05 opened right up! Woo-Hoo!

I must point out that I am running Windows XP, SP3 … so, I can only hope this FIX will work on newer systems!


 

Windows 8 … 64-bit? … This article recommends C++ 2005 … but, these days, the VPVP page recommends C++ 2008 AND C++ 2010.

Here’s the link to the VPVP page …
http://www.geocities.jp/higuchuu4/index_e.htm

Look under section 1.4 … there are links to the 64-bit 2008 and 2010 C++ downloads. … Other new MMDers say that this worked has for them!


 

DOWNLOAD the first one … install it. Let it run for a bit … kind of hard to determine when the install is finished … Then download the SP1 version and install it.

Microsoft Visual C++ 2005 Redistributable Package (x86):

Microsoft Visual C++ 2005 SP1 Redistributable Package (x86):
http://www.microsoft.com/download/en…s.aspx?id=5638

That’s it … MikuMikuDance 8.05 now runs on my machine.

      See the Troubleshooting page about installing C++ redistributables.

          What version of MMD you’re using, 64 or 32-bit? Open Programs&Features in Control Panel and check what C++ related items you have installed. There must be some sort of mismatch there.

      Have you tried to reinstall MS Visual C++ libraries relevant to your version of MMD?

        how to see if my ms visual c is relevant to mmd version?

        • May 13, 2016    

          Check the Download or Troubleshooting pages for links. AFAIR, 32-bit MMD requires 2005 and 2008 32-bit libraries, and 64-bit MMD needs 2008 and 2010 64-bit versions accordingly.
