What do I need to install?
If you've never had Muk3D on your computer
You will need to install CodeMeter which is the license control software we use. Muk3D is currently compatible with CodeMeter v7.20. Download links to an installer are provided by MineBridge Software.
Please do not install any other versions of CodeMeter unless you've discussed it with our technical support team beforehand.
Next, install Catapult (v2021.1.1) which is the launcher for Muk3D. This is the program that you'll look for in the Start menu to run Muk3D.
Finally install Muk3D.
If you're an existing user of Muk3D
If you've been using Muk3D there's no need to update CodeMeter if the version of Catapult is later than v6.80 If you have an earlier version, please uninstall CodeMeter and then install the latest runtime (v6.80 or higher).
If you're using Catapult v1.0.9 or earlier, you need to uninstall this and then install the latest version.
You don't need to uninstall the previous version of Muk3D to install the newest version. Catapult allows you to have multiple versions installed simultaneously. We advise that users keep the 2 most recent versions of Muk3D installed (Current version, previous version).
If you have already been using Muk3D on your computer, you'll have a license file installed that will still be valid (unless maintenance has not been renewed, in which case you'll be limited to using your current version of Muk3D and not v2018.1.1).
For new users or new Muk3D installations, licensing is handled by the license file attached to the download email. It is of the format <some_file_name>.catapult.
If you have been using a trial license on your computer, please remove this first. This is done by going to Licensing/Remove evaluation license in Catapult.
Save the Catapult license file onto your hard drive, drag onto the open Catapult window and the license will be installed and a confirmation dialog will pop up. If the license fails to install, please contact our support team.
If you receive any error messages please contact us for assistance BEFORE removing any licenses or reinstalling anything. Trial licenses are single use only (can only be installed once per computer).
