I have downloaded DAZStudio_4.0.3.47_Win_bundle.zip a dozen times today and each time it is corrupted. Can anybody confirm this? I have put in a support ticket to let DAZ3D know, but I doubt they will get it until Monday unless somebody checks their work email for fun on the weekend.

    Haven't had anyone else say anything about this. Why do you think it is corrupted ? What Browser are you using for your downloads ? and did you clear your browser cache in between downloads, to make sure that any failed downloads are not causing subsequent downnloads to fail at the same point, which does happen frequently on PCs.

    I've tried from three different computers. One is even using a proxy, so I am getting it from a completely different routes to the file.

    I forgot to mention that the SHA-1 hash of the download is different every time. Which suggests problems with the download process and not a single bad source file.

    Does anybody have the correct SHA-1 has for a know-good version of DAZStudio_4.0.3.47_Win_bundle.zip ?

    I will spin up another computer on AWS and try downloading it. That will grab it from yet a different CDN node.

    Well, Thank you for your time. And it is too bad you have to be overly zealous. The idea that you cannot provide a MD5/SHA hash for "legal reasons" is absurd. All you've done is upset a customer. A paying customer.

    I was able to grab a good copy via my AWS instance.

    I had no intention of upsetting anyone, I merely stated that AFAIK information of this sort is not re-distributed according to EULA's. If I was mistaken, then I can only apologise, I am a Mod, not a techie. I guess I should have said I am not certain if this can be distributed legally.

    We could have tried talking you through a few more things to try gettingyour download to work, including using a different browser to download it, or even sometimes a different AV app. Which was why I asked you the questions about browsers etc

    I have *no* idea if it is allowed or not. Hashes are trap-door functions (i.e. presumed non-invertible), but years ago the official line was: "nobody knows how secure they are, except perhaps the NSA". It seems there are sites that specialise in reversing them, so a modicum of prudence may be warranted. You certainly see lots of hashes around programming sites. I don't have the 4.0.3.47 file here, but I'm ready to post the 4.5 RC3 bundle hash if permission is given.

    The OP has said that he/she managed to download a copy in the end.
