OK, I just happened to peek in here because I’ve been having a few problems with my new install of DS 4.0 Pro. I haven’t been able to see everything in my Content Tab, though some are showing the in Smart Content Tab (which I don’t usually use), but when I try to load them I get an error message.
Now, just for the heck of it, I checked and I have the Content Management Service in BOTH places. In the ProgramData folder there’s one subfolder called databases with 5 files in it. In the Program Files folder there’s 5 subfolders and 15 files.
Pete, as you know from my thread in the DAZ Discussion forum, I had to do a complete uninstall and reinstall, and I’m wondering if that’s what caused the CMS to turn up in two places. Do you think I could just move the files and folders from the Program Files folder to the ProgramData folder, or do you think that will really mix things up even worse? I suspect that’s why I’m having a problem loading things into a scene.
Now that I think about it I had, at one point, two content data folders in my old DS 2 install on the old laptop, but I was able to merge those w/o too many reprecussions. Here, the files aren’t the same, but obviously need to be in just one location.
Oh, I just read Mike’s question and that’s what I have. The databases are in the ProgramData folder, but the executable and other files/folders are in the Program Files folder, which is strange since I don’t have DS 4 installed in Program Files. Then again, some installers just do what they want, and install where they want. ~shakes head~
Anyone have any ideas as to whether my set up is correct?
