CRYENGINE is shipped with an installer application (CryToolsInstaller) that facilitates the installation of plugins and tools that support the export and content creation processes in various Digital Content Creation (DCC) packages.
Installation via CryToolsInstaller helps to keep your plugins up to date on each release of the Engine. Therefore, we recommend this method rather than manual installs.


Before running the installer make sure that you have setup your build information via the Settings Manager tool.

Running the CryToolsInstaller

To run the application, navigate to the Tools folder inside your build and double-click on the executable: <root>\Tools\CryToolsInstaller.exe

This will open the application. You will then be presented with various options, these depend on which tools are already installed.

Selecting Packages to Install

Next, select the plug-in packages that you wish to install. 

The tools automatically detect the supported application versions and where they are installed on your hard drive.

Once you have chosen your packages, click Next.

You will then get a 'success' (or a 'fail' if something has gone wrong) on the installation of the required plugins.
