For guides and general help
on installing MXM, adding skins, preview videos, setting up your menus, etc. check out the MXM User Help Site

The best place right now for preview videos
Even though MXM is a dashboard, it can still be run as an app. It is recommended to run MXM as an app before installing as a dash, to configure it properly.
The Basic Installation
of MXM requires no xml or other configuration files
. However, to get the most out of mxm, it is recommended to make xml files.
There are utilities to create xml files for you, if you don't want to do it manually.
To create a very basic menu structure, use Myx-Lite
To create a menu structure and configuration file, use Myxomatosis
To create a configuration file, use baMXMconfig
All these tools require the MS .NET framework (free download on the MS Website), and the tools can be downloaded from MXM Tools section on AllXboxSkins
And we are working on ways to completely configure everything from within MXM without any additional tools. We'll keep you posted on this.Where to Find Files + TutorialsMajor credit goes to OSWALD
