..OK so to deal with the pesky Duplicate ID” error (which hosed the texture map on one of my characters recently) I have taken it upon myself to reset, re-download and reinstall all my Genesis content - a lengthy task indeed.
So when I began installing the updated files the other night I noticed that the uninstall routine in the “new” version behaved rather oddly. The normal uninstall dialogue box appeared, I clicked on “yes” after which the process sat there for a moment and then completed the installation. There was no progress monitor for the uninstall routine, no dialogue box that indicated the uninstall was complete. I fired up the .exe for said content again just to make sure it had the correct instal path (which it did) than cancelled the action so as not to install it again.
So, this makes me wonder, what exactly happened? Did it simply just bypass the uninstall routine and instead install over the new version over the older one (which is not a good thing as it will no doubt lead to continual occurrences of the Duplicate ID error) ? I am reluctant to do any further updating until I can get an answer on this, thus any 3D work has pretty much been on hold for the last week.
