Troubleshooting installation issues :
When you drag and drop the lpk, modo performs the installation of the plugin.
It may return an error message if
– It can’t find the target ‘Kit’ folder
– or, it has no right to write in the Kit folder.
In this case, the workaround is to install it manually:
– Rename the .lpk as .zip
– Extract the ‘QuadRemesher’ folder inside the zip
– Open modo, click on ‘Open Content Folder’
(or ‘Open User folder’, this location will work as well)
– In the Explorer/Finder, enter in the ‘Kit’ folder.
Copy the “QuadRemesher” folder extracted from the zip into the ‘Kit’ folder
Close and restart modo .
In the ‘quick start‘ video, we want to install in “C:\Users\All Users\ Autodesk\ApplicationPlugins\”.
1 – NB: on windows, “C:\Users\All Users\” is exactly the same folder than “C:\ProgramData\”.
So you can install in “C:\ProgramData\Autodesk\ApplicationPlugins”, this will be strictly equivalent.
2 – On macOS : The “QuadRemesher” folder extracted from the zip must be copied in:
3 – The “C:\Users\All Users\ Autodesk\” folder should already exist if Maya is installed. (/Users/Shared/Autodesk/ on macOS).
BUT, the folder “ApplicationPlugins” may not already exist ! (“ApplicationAddins” on macOS)
In this case, CREATE it manually! (take care of typo !)
Troubleshooting running issues :
On windows, you can get this kind of error: “The program can’t start because MSVCR120.dll is missing…”
In this case, you will need to download and install Microsoft’s Redistibuable Packages for Visual Studio 2013.
You can find it here : https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/download/details.aspx?id=40784
(or google : “Download Microsoft Visual C++ 2013 Redistributable Package (x64)”)
If you get: “The program can’t start because MSVCR100.dll is missing…”
In this case, you will need to download and install Microsoft’s Redistibuable Packages for Visual Studio 2008.
