Ok, I’m not sure what’s going on, because following your steps works perfectly fine for me.
Exactly which version of Carrara are you on? The most current release is 126.96.36.199
M4 Morphs++ was updated last year, are you sure that you have the most recent version?
i have 8.1. pro build 153 (64bit) installed. when i first started getting the problems i reset, and re-downloaded, the latest versions of v4 and m4 (although not, until now, the latest version of carrara)
i’m currently, as we speak, downloading the latest version of carrara (8.5.0132). it’s not possible, as far as i can see, to specify that you want to download version 188.8.131.52, or indeed any particular version. but perhaps this version i’m currently downloading will solve the problem? (ha ha. only kidding. we’ll see)
p.s. i’ve been doing this s**t since the days of poser FOUR. it’s not surprising that n00bs (some of whom come onto my site saying “how on earth do i get any of this stuff actually WORKING?)”, just give up and go home. some days i know precisely how they feel
