OK I'm going to install 4.5 but I would like to how whats going to happen to all my current content. Am I going to lose all of it requiring me to reinstall it all or will it still be there after 4.5 is up and running?

    Depends on where it is and how it's currently mapped to DS.

    If it's under Program Files (like it would be for XP, if you are using Windows), then, while not quite 'getting rid' of it (it will still be there, physically), it just may not show up. Same with if it's all in a Poser Runtime setup. If you are using 4.0, it will uninstall (you may have to it manually) all the 'included' content, but not the user added stuff. You will need to install the Genesis Essentials package to get that back.

    Don't forget to get the script to update your .dsf clothes, hair, etc. so DS4.5 can use them. http://www.daz3d.com/forums/discussion/740/


    If you get the "duplicate IDs" error, this should fix it.

    You could simply cut/paste the content to the documents folder and be done with it...

    Well it looks like I don't have any content in my current;y installed daz 4 Program folder but I do have plenty in my old daz 3 program folder. I guessing I should move the stuff over to the 4.5 documents folder after i install it.

    If it's a 3 setup, it may be quicker/easier to map to it in 4.5...especially if it's a large amount of data.
