If Cargo is unable to locate your 3D Software in the Select Software step of Basic Setup, you may need to use Advanced Setup.

This issue typically arises when your 3D Software is saved to a hard drive or folder location that differs from the default installation.

To access Advanced Setup, click "Advanced Setup" at the bottom of the "Select Software" step of Software Setup.

From this point, you'll need to select the 3D software you want to set up. Then, click the Application File entry box and navigate to the .exe file for your 3D Software.

For example, with Blender, you would select the โ€œblender.exeโ€ file typically saved to C:\Program Files\Blender Foundation\Blender 3.3

โš ๏ธ To successfully connect Cargo to your software, you must have your software ".exe" file saved to the C:\ drive.

If you have made any edits to the original ".exe" file, you will not be able to successfully connect Cargo to your software.

After locating the file, click "Install Plugin."

If Cargo successfully locates your 3D Software, you can proceed with the rest of the steps in Basic Setup.
