I did a search on this forum, but my issue does not seem to be represented here.
My problem is by no means restricted to just the files mentioned below, but these are the most basic and important so far and they serve to represent the problem as a whole.
I had DS 4 on for a while, but I had huge problems getting most of what I installed to show up in the icon areas. I got V5 and M5 behaving correctly right off, but not much else, except for “Stephanie 4 for Genesis”. This week I uninstalled DS 4.0 and put on DS 4.5, hoping the problem would disappear. It didn’t. I actually lost ground. When I installed DS 4.5, I could still see the icons for M5 and V5, but Stephanie 4 for Genesis was now missing from the array of content on the left. I pressed on and installed V4 and M4 for Genesis, but they did not show up either. I did a search of My Library and I found that V5, M5, S4, M4 and V4 (all special morphs for Genesis) were sitting side by side in the same folder (Daz3D\Studio\My Library\data\Daz3D\Genesis\Base\Morphs\Daz3D\) As far as I know, that is just where they ought to be.
How can DS 4.5 see V5 and M5, but not M4, V4, and S4? Is it wrong to use the automatic installer that come with these applications for putting in content? Is there any way to make DS 4.5 see everything that its folders contain? I have to solve this; there is no use installing more content if the program can only display a fraction of it. Before deciding to post, I looked at available tutorials, but while lots of people seem to have installations problems, there was nothing specific to what I’m dealing with. Incidentally, I don’t think I have a bad installation, since DS 4.0 and DS 4.5 have behaved about the same for me.
