hi people
i recently downloaded Dson importer , after i installed it , with genesis starter essentials and genesis starter essentials for poser , my DS4 does’nt load the default genesis content on startup .
the error i recive is “no importer for the file format can be found” (this happens when i open up DS4)
and when i try to load something from the default content i get this message “one or more content can not be found make sure that the content is propely installed see the log file for more details “
i’m not reporting the log file yet because it’s too long and i don’t know how many rows i should paste , reporting it all would take to much space

The message , “no importer for the file format can be found”, is usually because a version of DS4 (prior to 4.5) is trying to open a .DUF format file.  DS4 cannot open them.

What version of DS4 are you running, Help > About DAZ Studio?  The file you are trying to load is Genesis.DUF and the DS4 needs Genesis.DSF whcih was the earlier version.

If you want to use the most recent version of Genesis Starter Essentials, you should install one of the 4.5 version, 4.5.1.6 being the latest available.

if i cannot upgrade or don’t want to spend moneys , is there a way to get it working again , maybe by reinstalling it or removing Dson files…..

Download it from here, still 100% discount at the moment, and because you take it through the chekckout system it will be in your download history for any future upgrades.

You will need to install both the program exe and the Genesis starter essentials.

Just post again if you are not sure which files to install.  The version you should install is 4.5.1.6, and as Cho says, the Genesis Starter Essentials file as well.  You may get some other plugins in your downloads which you don’t need.

If you are not sure, please ask.

Unless you have ZBrush installed, you don’t need GoZ, the same goes for the Photoshop Bridge.  Decimator is a paid for plugin for DAZ Studio, so unless you bought it seperately from the store, or bought it previously, it wont work,

All you really need to install is the main application file for DS 4.5 depending on your operating system, and the bit depth (32 bit or 64 bit), and the Genesis Starter Essentials which should be installed to the DAZ Studio Default My Library folder.

All of the above is for DAZ Studio.  I don’t have Poser 9 or 2012, so I am afraid I don’t know where any of the other files get installed to.  I will leave that for someone else to answer.

Hi smile

The genesis essentials “for Poser,”.. should be installed into your Poser 9, or Poser 2012, libraries .

Also,.. any “Poser Companion files” should be installed there too.

  edited to add,..

You’ll also need to have the latest Poser 9 or poser 2012 update .... which I believe is 3.1
