Welcome to XMD!

Congrats on being part of the XMD ToolBox beta! This documentation will be a living document for a while. It will be a work in progress throughout beta. Beta will run as long as we need it to, to make sure the functionality of the XMD ToolBox is sound, stable, and what YOU, the user wants. We want this plugin to be as awesome as humanly possible. There are some limitations, but we are trying desperately to overcome them. Please while in beta, if you find any bugs, report them. This will help us tremendously. If you have any feature requests or layout issues, let us know about those as well. You will find a link below to report and request! Have fun with this beta, as well will work tirelessly to create the ultimate plugin! There are so many features we intend on adding. This is only the beginning. Enjoy and have fun!

Installation & Activation

Please follow these steps to install The XMD ToolBox on your computer. There are two types in installs. I will run through each of them. I will also run through the upgrade process.

exe Installer Steps

The EXE will install the ToolBox to a specific location. There is currently no way to install it in a custom location. This is due to the admin securities of windows. We include a portable version you can use if you wish to put this in a different location.

Run the Installer

      • You will be prompted for the start menu location. By default this adds the ToolBox to your programs folder in your start menu.

Desktop Icon

      • Here you will see a checkbox for the creation of a desktop icon. I recommend this. This is how you will run the ToolBox. You can also run it through your start menu.
