While you’re waiting, here’s a batch installation script http://www.daz3d.com/forums/viewthread/4603/ which contains a link to the original batch installation script written by Tugspx. I modified it to process different types of installers in successive waves (by uncommenting the different parameters lines). Legionair added two other scripts but I haven’t looked at what he’s done with those.
Thx a lot for sharing this!
I followed the link, read through everything and followed the link further to a post in the forumarchive where the original unchanged script by Tugspx is to be found:
I quickly tried with 4 products I purchased last sunday and it worked.

Now the question will be how many installers I can safely process at the same time without running the risk that some metadata is being skiped when added to the queue.
My cautious approach was so far to unly install 10 products at a time and the restart DS4.5 to process the metadata queue.
Maybe that is to cautious? But then again it was also last sunday that DS4.5 triggered a fatal error while trying to process metadata of 15 queued products. On the other hand I seem to have managed to install whole “pro bundles” without any loss. Seems all a bit trial and error so far.
Coded section removed, as it appeared to be merely a copy and paste of the information in the old forum, and it was breaking the forum formatting.
