- Download a pre-built .rar file from Media fire
- Follow the instructions in INSTRUCTIONS.txt
- Download a pre-built .zip file from the tools page
- Copy the contents of the \mel folder and OgreXMLConverter and related files into DRIVE:\My Documents\maya\VERSION\scripts
- Edit your userSetup.mel file and add the line "source OgreExporter"
- Start Maya and go to Preferences->Plug-Ins and check the OgreExporter.mll box (Autoload it if you'd like too. There should now be an Ogre menu
- Build exporter linking with the libs for the maya version you are using. You can find those inside $path\Alias\MayaX.X\include and $path\Alias\MayaX.X\lib directories.
- Copy Ogrenew/Tools/MayaExport/exporter/lib/release/ogreExport.mll to Alias/MayaX.X/bin/plug-ins/
- Copy Ogrenew/Tools/MayaExport/mel/exporter/*.* to Alias/MayaX.X/scripts/others/

If you want to use the option in the exporter to automagically create binary meshes, then you must have the standard OgreXmlConverter.exe in the path.
