I’ve been racking my brain, but I think I’ve tried virtually everything I can without digging deeper into program files than I feel comfortable going. I had a few thoughts, like trying to update my Python core, but I’m afraid that the few ideas I have left might create other problems. I know next to nothing about the internal workings of Poser and DS.
Even after re-installing 64-bit DSON (to C:\Program Files\Smith Micro\Poser Pro 2012) after the recent update and making sure my C++ was up to date, I’m still getting this error. The funny thing is, I’m trying to run 64-bit DSON in 64-bit PP12 on a 64-bit Windows 7 machine with Visual C++ 2010 (along with several other builds dating back to 2005). It’s 64-bit all the way, so it shouldn’t even be LOOKING for a Win32 program! Plus, the message is printed not once but twice in the Python console window that appears when I load PP12, which is especially odd.
I’m suspicious that this might be related to another oddity which by itself hasn’t been much of a problem, since I don’t actually use DS very often. Even though I’m running a 64-bit machine, 64-bit DS4 has never worked on my computer. I always get this when I try to start it up: “The application was unable to start correctly (0xc000007b). Click OK to close the application.” Even after I just installed the update (version 4.5), the same thing happened. The 32-bit version, however, works fine.
It’s almost as if some parts of my computer are deluded into believing it’s a 32-bit system or something!
I am eager to use Genesis, so I would really appreciate some serious tech support at this point. It’s starting to drive me mad, LOL!
Thanks in advance!
