Q100062: Help with the "Standard Content Wasn't Found" message

Follow

SUMMARY

MODO has additional content packs which includes a wide range of assets, presets, images and other useful examples. If MODO cannot find the files on your system when it launches it will pop up a warning message saying "Standard Content Wasn't Found".

This guide explains more about this and how you can access the content.

 

MORE INFORMATION

The content packs are available as separate installers because they are not required for running MODO and also this keeps the MODO download file size down.

These examples are very useful so we recommend that users install all the Content packs available for their current version of MODO and Operating System.  Additionally some MODO Kits require directories set up by the Content installers.

The Content packs are available from the MODO downloads page:

http://www.thefoundry.co.uk/products/modo/downloads/

 

NOTE: Previously released Content packs can have more assets, which were removed or replaced in newer versions. You are able to download Content packs from previous versions and it is advised that you install them in chronological order, as newer releases will overwrite assets with fixed versions. (For example; install content from 801 before installing the 901 versions)

    Where is this guide? All I see is the summary. I have the content installed on a different drive and it still cant find it. I have to manually add the path and even then every time I start modo I have to re associate content. Why can you just make it easy and let us have an option to point modo to its content since we all dont have large drives where we install programs too.

    Hi Larry,

    If you are not able to see the whole guide, I would advise either updating your browser or trying a different one.

    For re-targeting the content you can set up the NEXUS_CONTENT environment variable to permanently add a new path. If you have problems with this, please see this article: Q100015: How To Set Environment Variables

    Is this the whole guide? Because the pdf only shows this also.

    Hi, I have just downloaded the latest version of Modo on mac and have successfully install the main program. However, whenever I try to run the install for the content packages my installer in Mac keeps on not responding and the package takes a long time to verify.

    please help! thank you!
