I am totally confused on installing Mimic Pro. Which one goes where?
There are a total of 3 versions of Mimic Pro. Both the Carrara 8.1 and the carrara 8.5 versions have two or three installers per platform (Windows 32/64 and Mac Intel 32/64 and for Carrara 8.1 Mac PPC 32 bit) Carrara 7 is 32 bit only so has 2 installers one for Windows and one for Mac.
The Carrara 7 Mimic Installers are ps_ap207_MimicProForCA.exe and ps_ap207_MimicProForCA.zip
The Carrara 8 Mimic Installers are C8_MimicPro_126.96.36.199 plus an identifier for platform
The Carrara 8.5 Mimic Installers are C8_MimicPro_188.8.131.52 plus an identifier for platform.
I am getting the 8.5 ones renamed once they are associated with the Product Libraries, but if you have the installers already this is what they are. The Carrara 8 versions do not work with Carrara 8.5 and the Carrara 8.5 versions do not work with Carrara 8.
They are supposed to be installed to the same folder where Carrara is installed and will add files to the Extensions folder in the folder where Carrara is installed.
