I simply reinstalled Daz 4 and took Daz 4.5 off of my new computer. Low and behold everything is now working as it once did.
A while little while ago I downloaded a set of Daz content from this website, only to discover how buggy the content can be. I cut my losses and decided not to bother with it. But here i am trying it again…
I have purchased a new computer and on that computer i have installed Daz 4.5 (running windows 7). The old one is near dead and is running Daz 4 (vista) and will soon be in the garbage can. They are both 64 bit. Low and behold, Daz Evolution is working fine in Daz 4 but will not show up in Daz 4.5 even though I used the same exact installation files on both computers. (and yes I have checked the parameters tab) Now just to be clear, I am talking about shaping items like “Crows feet, Iris size, eyelashes curl, nose septum depth, nose septum height” exedra.
Before I spend anymore money on this content I need to know that the content actually works as intended. Can someone please explain to me what is happening, and offer a fix that does not include deleting my entire Daz 4.5 program and archive only to roll the dice on whether or not it will work if I install everything again a second time?
I am sorry for the tone of this post, but I just feel a bit annoyed at the idea of throwing money out the window on expensive programs that don’t do what they are supposed to do the first time around. They are more then worth the money, don’t get me wrong. But only if they work as intended the first time they are installed.
So any help in resolving this issue would be appreciated. If it can be resolved I would most defiantly like to purchase more content. The next on my list is ethnic faces. But what is the point of doing that if my already existing evolution works on an old computer and not my new Maingear F1 dream machine with a 580 3GB video card and 16G of ram designed specifically for CGI rendering?
