Animate2 .exes?

Just bought Animate2, which apparently comes with a pair of .exe files. Problem is, they won't install. I tried the default: my documents/daz 3d/studio/my library; then the main program directory: program files/daz 3d/dazstudio4.

both locations threw an error saying "the installation path for dazstudio could not be found"

I assume they're content files, since the plugin is already present with DS4.

Are they looking for DS3?

    Hmm, yeah, that would make sense.


    Those should be the DS3 installers, unless you got them in a bundle. Mine were DS3_aniMate2_2.0.0.6_Win32.exe, DS3_aniMate2_2.0.0.6_Win64.exe. Your versions might be newer.


    You have to give the DS4 plugin your Animate 2 registration key that you just bought.

    Help->About Installed Plugins might let you put in the key, but I think I had to use the dialog at startup.

    If you don't have the plugin registration dialog, when you start DS4, then go to Edit->Preferences->Startup tab->Show Plug-in Registration dialog.

    On this new site, your registration keys are at:
    https://www.daz3d.com/shop/downloadable/customer/serialnumbers/

    (You probably know that, but someone else, reading this, might not).

    Yeah, I've registered Animate2 in DS4, no problem, I was just wondering about the exe's I downloaded. They were the same version as yours, so I'm guessing they're DS3.

    I purchased Animate2 but I dont get a dialog for the serial number. Please help. (The registration box comes up, but is only asking for decimator serial)

    If you go to "Help", and, "About Installed Plugins", can you put the serial-number into the space after the name?

    I can't remember which way I had to do the registration, it has carried over to each newer version of 4.
