...yes I installed the dynamic clothing control even though I can’t use it.
It could be that unnecessary installation you did earlier that is still messing up any re-installs you’re doing.
Is there an uninstaller for just the DCC?
Installing the Dynamic Clothing Control disables the basic plugin by renaming the two plugin dlls by adding a .basic filetyping to them so they aren’t read by DS on load. So dzautoriggerbasic.dll is renamed to dzautoriggerbasic.dll,basic and dzoptitexclothbasic.dll is renamed to dzoptitexclothbasic.dll.basic while the paid for (and serial needing) dzautoriggercontrol.dll and dzoptitexclothcontrol.dll are added to replace them.
Certainly, if the full Dynamicv Clothing Control has been run in error, the proper uninstaller needs to be run to get back to the basic dynamic clothing, as the unninstaller not only removes the two DCC plugins, but also renames the two basic plugins, removinf the .basic from the end so DS sees and loads them again, and corrects the action list.
So if the DCC insaller was run by mistake, the uninstaller needs to be run. If the control dlls were manually deleted and the uninstaller lost, then run the DCC installer again (just so the unijstaller is created), then run the uninstaller. Or go into the DS program folder, the plugins directory, and check that dzautoriggerbasic.dll and dzoptitexclothbasic.dll are there and don’t have .basic on the end of each after the .dll. If they have the .basic, delete it so they end at the .dll.
