I need Daz Studio 2.3 for Windows since I have an old plugin that doesn't work with later versions. Does anybody know if it's possible to get it anywhwere?

Thanks.

    You would need to contact Support, Sales department, and ask them. They are usually quite helpfull.

    Tim , Forget it !!
    get it out of your mind ..
    ...it wont happen
    I tried in the past to get an older version (2.3.3)
    All Support did was throw ad copy at me about how great DS4 was
    perhaps things have changed on this matter but I doubt it

    ... move on

    Asking doesn't hurt. It may also be worth checking magazine cover discs, if you have a collection, as I think DS2 made at least a couple of appearances on those (though whether the right sub-version or not is another matter).

    You could also purchase this book which includes DS2.3 along with a boat load of great content as well!

    It's on C|Net: http://download.cnet.com/DAZ-Studio/3000-6677_4-10996454.html

    I know nothing about whether it wants a serial, or anything else, because I haven't used it since... well, since it was the new hot thing. But, there's the actual 2.3 installer.

    Beat me to it! :) Yes, this is the only way I know of to guarantee a copy, or like Richard recommended you can possibly still find it on back issues of 3dWorld or something.

    It's working for me. Maybe it's the browser you're using,

    Page works for me. But it gives you 4.5.0.114. Just tested it. (Mine is 2.1.1.13 no content, so why not).

    Thought I'd save you a much longer download than 2.x. The bit above the button gives a thin hint "A newer version of Daz Studio is available."

    I think you're back to the book idea. :-S

    A lot of people say the book is a great deal, on the other hand, you've been here since 2003, and might have most of the stuff, on the other other hand, it's cheap.

    "Page works for me. But it gives you 4.5.0.114. "

    Yep even back when I was able to get a working CNET link I was always re directed to the latest Daz studio version
    Eventually I found my Old 2.3 OSX installer in archive so im good at 2.3.5 with Animate+

    Animate+ & the poser format exporter is the only reason I keep DS installed anyway as I use Maxon Cinema4D with Vray + the interposer pro plugin to render my poser content/animation work in C4D.

    Cheers

    Can anyone confirm that DS 2.3.3.146 works on Windows7?

    It works for me, but I get that weird problem with transparencies that you discovered. I thinks that's due to changes in OpenGL rather than Win7, however.

    I learned that the issues with transparencies are only with whats visable in the Viewport, when it renders, it actually renders perfectly fine.

    But thanks for the confirmation. I need to upgrade from WinXP to Win7, but im not ready to upgrade DS versions at this time.
