_ds_ and _dpc_ and a rule of thumb - whats what?
I'm a little bit lost here :-(
I've already used content installation files of the two flavors ds and dpc. Usually I've chosen the package for which Software I wanted to use it.
ds for DAZ and dpc for Poser.
I've got again ds & dpc files and now I'm searching again for a clean explanation about what is what. I found this at a few places...
(i.e. http://docs.daz3d.com/)Many content products consist of several installers. As a rule of thumb, run all of the installers provided,
regardless of whether they are designated for DS (_ds_) or for Poser (_dpc_).
There are some exceptions, but more often than not, you'll need both the files from the DS installers and the DPC installers.
What should that mean - as a rule of thumb? Either install one or the other and not just in case both. What's what?
What exception could that be? I want to avoid having files twice installed somewhere, keeps the backup small :-)
With ZIP files it's obvious, much easier and you just copy into the runtime.
I've recently read somewhere DAZ is going switch only to ZIP files, do you read something like that, too?
By the way do you know if it's possible to extract the files manually from the executable installer?
I hope someone of you here can help me with this.
Thanks in advance.
