[quote="nerseus"][size=24][b]Installing Plugins[/b][/size]

NEW! As of 21 June, 2016 - IMVU has released an installer for the 3ds Max plugins. The installer can also, optionally, install sample files and more.
[size=18][url=http://www.imvu.com/catalog/modules.php?op=modload&name=phpbb2&file=viewtopic.php&t=564780]Click here to go to the topic on the new Installer[/url][/size]

Update! As of 26 October, 2015 - IMVU has released new exporters that work with most all versions of 3ds Max up through 3ds Max 2016.

([i][size=10][url=http://www.imvu.com/catalog/modules.php?op=modload&name=phpbb2&file=viewtopic.php&t=548856]Click here to see the forum thread regarding exporters[/url][/size][/i])

[size=24][b]Manual Installation (copying files from install package)[/b][/size]
Some versions of the exporter provided by imvu do not contain an installer (EXE). Instead, you will have to manually copy two files. It's not difficult but will require Admin privileges under windows. (Most people are likely signed in as an Admin in windows already.)

Unzip the package you download from imvu and look for two files - a file with extension DLL and another with extension DLE.

The DLL file should go in your main 3ds max folder. Depending on your version of Windows (64bit or 32bit) and what version of Max you installed it might be one of the following folders:
[code]
C:\Program Files\Autodesk\3ds Max 2016\
or
C:\Program Files (x86)\Autodesk\3ds Max 2016\
(Of course, change the "2016" to your version of max)
[/code]

The DLE file should go in a "plugins" folder just under the main 3ds max folder. For example:
[code]
C:\Program Files\Autodesk\3ds Max 2016\plugins\
or
C:\Program Files (x86)\Autodesk\3ds Max 2016\plugins\
[/code]

If you had 3ds Max open while copying the files, just close and re-open Max. No reboot of your computer is required.

To verify the exporter is installed:
As 3ds max opens there should be no error messages. Once 3ds max is open, choose:
[code]
File->Export
[/code]
and look at the available file types. If you see a few choices starting with "Cal3D..." then things are probably working. If not, please post later in this thread along with some screenshots showing what your export window shows (or any errors you got while starting max) and we'll try to help.

[size=24][b]General Troubleshooting[/b][/size]

[b][u]Got CFL Checksum error while submitting:[/u][/b]
This is an issue with Vista. Details to fix are on a [url=http://www.imvu.com/catalog/modules.php?op=modload&name=phpbb2&file=viewtopic.php&t=92508]forum thread.[/url]


[b][u]Getting error "Failed to Initialize" while launching Max[/u][/b]
If you're SURE you have the DLE and DLL files in the right spot (especially on Max 8), then try to install the following package of support DLLs from Microsoft:
[url=http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details.aspx?familyid=200B2FD9-AE1A-4A14-984D-389C36F85647&displaylang=en]Microsoft Visual C++ 2005 SP1 Redistributable Package (x86)[/url]

[b][u]Getting (another) error while launching Max[/u][/b]
Uninstall and reinstall the official IMVU exporter.

If you want to manually check - look in your 3ds max main install folder and look for a "cal3d" or "imvu" DLL file. Look in the "Plugins" subfolder for a similarly named DLE file.
Depending on your version of Windows this folder might be:
C:\Program Files\Autodesk\3ds Max 2016\
or
C:\Program Files (x86)\Autodesk\3ds Max 2016\

(Of course, the number 2016 would match your version of Max).

[size=18][b][u]What about the WorldViz version of the Cal3d plugin? What about other Cal3D plugins?[/u][/b][/size]
At this point there's no need to use any other exporters other than the offical IMVU plugin. The exporters made for other applications may work and produce files similar to those used by IMVU, but will likely be in a somewhat different format - making them useless for IMVU. There is/was a converter to help with this process but that should be considered obsolete.

@IFENGSHUI:
Sorry for the flow reply.
As the error indicates - the plugin you've installed is for the wrong version of Max. The folder indicates you've got Max 2012 installed? If that's right then make sure you install the matching version of the plugin. Check out the first page of this thread for links to the most current exporters (and also to see which exporters will NOT work, such as those downloaded from world viz or similar sites).
