    I assume you mean Daz Studio 4.5 right? Are you using the most updated Sirena?

    Ok, it seems that i've found the problem. There is a wrong file in that bundle and that is processing this error.

    Quick Fix:
    Go into the data-folder of your DAZ-Runtime:
    your Runtime: data: DAZ 3D: Genesis: Base: Morphs: Danmoria: Sirena
    and delete the file from the Error Message: Sirena Body.dsf

    You should now have the following data in that folder:
    Sirena Backspikes.dsf
    Sirena Ear.dsf
    Sirena Eyebrows.dsf
    Sirena Gills.dsf
    Sirena Head.dsf

    Restart DAZ Studio and see if the error message is popping up again. If not, everything should work right now.

    Hope that works for you

    In first step I try to rename the file instead of delete,,,
    But the error comes with the new name

    I move the file on desktop and delete the main,,
    That Works!

    I know it was the author of the item that suggested that, but would that action not remove the ability to use the morph?

    @Simon: No, the file is not used by the morphs, it's just dead weight, a ghost file.

    I'll contakt Kevin for an official update, but with look on my very full schedule it will take a bit.

    Regards,
    Pam/Danmoria

    I'm still getting that error all the time. It doesn't affect my work at all, but it keeps on coming every time I load a Genesis or open a work with a Genesis in and it's getting pretty annoying now. I've removed any Sirena Body.dsf I could find, but it still keeps on complaining

    Have you scanned the entire PC for the Sirena Body.dsf?

    An older version of DAZ had created a data-folder on my PC outside my Content-Folder and i didn't knew that until i did a search for Sirena Body.
    Maybe thats the problem you are having, too?

    The link you posted for the image just comes up as a 404 now. Were you getting the same error as the OP? I restarted everything from scratch a few weeks back and Sirena no longer has the *.dsf file in question in the download.

    Check your preferences (edit>preferences), and check on both the startup and scene tabs for custom scenes that may still be calling for the bugged version of Sirena.

    Okay pic 1 is the error message I'm getting:

    Pic 2 is the startup:

    And pic 3 is the scene:

    I still can't figure what is wrong. The file mentioned is nowhere to be found of course and I imagine that is why I get the message, but how do I get rid of it? Shall I remove Sirena? I'd rather not because I like the figure...

    I wonder if you've had Sirena installed to more than one content folder at one time. Can you post a screenshot of your content directories in your content manager? Edit > Preferences > Content Library > Content Directory Manager and click the + signs to expand the trees.

  • HeraHera Posts: 889
    edited December 1969

    This is what it looks like. I'm not really sure what to look for. And yes, Sirena (as the rest of the content) is installed to both F and H, the latter being a separate disk which I use when I'm working from another computer.

    If you have only the one default content library this is all wrong.

    1. Is the only path that should be listed and it should be the TOP DAZ Studio path.
    2. Should not be listed at all if it contains the same content as 1
    3.This should be the only path listed and at the top of Poser paths
    4.This should not be listed at ALL if a copy of the content as said before.

    You should only have one path listed twice, once in each format if all your content is in My Library.

    If DazOther holds content it should be listed once in both as well below the default path.

    Well, I don't dare to tinker with the library settings. This set up is created by trial and error after several of my older works starting to fail after I migrated the DAZ content from the internal D drive (which it became too large for) to two separate stand alone disks, including one I take with me to be able to render on another computer. If I start to remove things here I'm afraid scenes I'm working on will stop working. That was what happened 2 y ago after switching computer and also after migrating from D to H and F. I lost so much of my older works that I keep my hands off this set up now, because now it works. The only thing I wish to aquire is to get rid of the annoying sirena error.

    I'm only trying to help. And If it works it works, knowing what I do I'm very surprised it does because frankly it shouldn't. This is a Default content folder and done properly. I get no issues ever done this way. The Location of the folder does not matter, but how it is listed does.

    I certainly appreciate your try to help.

    It's just that I have been trough hell and back with the design of the CDM, and I don't dare to touch it out of fear that it should give me new problems.

    This is why you're receiving errors. You have nested folders that shouldn't even be mapped. The /data and /People/Genesis are INSIDE of /My Library, therefore you should only have the /My Library mapped. You should only be listing the library itself, not it's internal folders as well.

    This is generally what the inside of a My Library folder should look like, with the !!My Library being the one mapped in Daz (yours may be named something else). None of these internal folders get mapped.

    If you have folders with these names inside of /data, move them one directory up and remove /data from your content library listing.

    /edit
    You CAN have multiple libraries; however, you only list the top most folder of each one (as shown in my 2nd screenshot).

    Not to sound like a pain in the ass, but the longer you leave it like this, the more problems you'll face down the road and the more you'll have to fix.

    Well actually data is not below My Library but next to it.

    The folder structure looks like this

    F:\LINDA\DAZ other\data

    F:\LINDA\DAZ other\My Library

    F:\LINDA\DAZ other\People\Genesis

    F:\LINDA\DAZ other\Runtime\Libraries

    + a lot of other things having been installed with things I've aquired.
    If I am to remove F:\LINDA\DAZ other\data from the CDM, then a lot of my older and ongoing stuff will break apart. I did that misstake about 1½ year ago, and it took me a weekend to get it right again.

    Well unfortunately this is a case where something 'appeared to work' but actually doesn't... and this is how it shows itself, with problems like this. The mapping is at the root of the problem and items were installed incorrectly it sounds like. The items installed incorrectly got 'solved' by changing the mapping, which was not a workable fix as it caused other problems. I understand your frustration, but the net result is that the 'fixes' are preventing a fix now it looks like and no one is likely to be able to help you sort this out without unwinding some of what you've done so far.

    I realize this isn't something you want to hear, and that I've put myself in the position of shoot the messenger, but I thought it'd be better then leaving you thinking no one wanted to help you.

    To add to what the other are saying you need to drag and drop the 'data', 'Runtime' and 'People' folders to your 'My Library' folder.

    Is there mayhaps any way to do that without ruining my earlier work, which point to 'data' direcly beneath the DAZ other directory?

    DAZ Studio is already looking in the First listed folder for the Data. If your Data is in My Library and My Library is the First listed folder it will find it just as it does on my PC.
