Is there any way to upgrade to 4.5 from 4 without losing all of my installs? Should I uninstall first?

You won’t lose all your installs… Some items you will have to re-instal, but for me it hasn’t been a very big deal at all.  Expect to have to re-download some items if you don’t have the installers archived, and get the fix duplicate IDs script… huge time saver, that one.

I just have literally hundreds of stuff in my library, most of them aren’t from daz that are from renderosity, and renderosity doesnt like it when i download something twice

Have they actually told you not to?  I’ve downloaded content from R.com multiple times because of various issues… I’ve never been told I couldn’t.

The stuff that you might, possibly, maybe have to re-download is only the stuff from DAZ that has been updated to the new DUF/DSON format.

I doubt it will be anything from Rendo.

4.5 only uninstalls what it installed itself, that’s basically the ‘Starter Essentials’ and its built-in content.
Items you installed separately, (even other DAZ products) are not touched by the installer.

(Though its always good to have the original installers backed up somewhere)  grin

You should be able to reset downloads at Renderosity as I have done it myself a couple of times. If you’re ever in doubt, contact them directly. The automated system isn’t as helpful as a real person, and they’re usually quite accommodating.

Yeah, I haven’t run into anything from Renderosity or RuntimeDNA that I had to re-install.  It’s just a few of the DAZ specific things like the Genesis Evolution morphs and things like that.
