      1. Copy <VERSION>\Windows_x86_*\PVRGeoPOD_v<VERSION>.mll to <MAYA_DIR>\bin\plug-ins
      2. If using Maya 2013-2016, Copy Qt5Core.dll, Qt5Gui.dll, Qt5Widgets.dll and \platforms folder to <MAYA_DIR>\bin (where maya.exe is)
      Warning: From Maya 2017 onwards, the required QT libraries are already present in Maya. Do not overwrite the original libraries.

The Auto load checkbox can also be selected to ensure the plugin is loaded every time Maya is started.
