after 3 uninstalls, reboots, jumping through firey hoops


I have successfully installed “look at my hair”


yipeeeeee happy dance, I whip my hair around, lalalala

ok
to avoid clogging Allesandros thread decided to post the steps to success here
and others can share here too and we can help each other!!
UNOFFICIAL help/whinge throw tantrum thread
First
if you have mucked it up
run the uninstaller through the installers picking cancel after uninstalling, do not let it re install
on both 32 and 64 bit

(I tried the uninstallers under programs Daz studio 4 plugins first time, had no luck sot
using the installers worked so go with it!)

delete the folder C:\Users\user\Documents\DAZ 3D\studio\lookatmyhairAM

restart computer

then re-run installers

I restarted again to be sure

now the correct steps

click create tab , pick new Look at my hair object


now leave the SERIAL number in the serial number field
DO NOT replace it with the one in my account serials!!

got to the web-link
put THAT number in under serial
and YOUR serial under installation code

then get the activation code

leave the included serial from opening the plugin under serial
put Yours in installation
now put the activation one under activation code

activate
chose close after success
close studio
(I got cannot open configuration file but ignored it)
I restarted computer again

next time create/ look at my hair object finally got me the salon window!!!!!!! yipeeeee

so perseverance paid off
share your woes, successes and we will stumble together to try to help you not pull your hair out or link to any Daz input on the matter as it appears,

There are some minor “teething pains”... but the effort is going to be worth it, I think (^_^)d.

(for me, the installation went okay, it’s just that 3Delight + Studio are crashing instantly when I go to render a hairy object… Signor Alessandro is working with me right now to track the root cause…).

Is there any screen shots of the interfaces? Or a video to watch? It’s something I’d like to get after xmas, but I’d love to see the basics of the work flow smile

Grab the manual, is on the home page: www.furrythings.com

Also, there are a bunch of old movies I did on my YT account (see my signature).

Can this be installed in an “offline” computer?

Does it only work in 4.5 ... will it work in 4.0?

You need to have an active internet connection to activate it and will work from 4.5 and higher…

But the internet connection is only for activating, I hope ...
Do I have to be online when using the plugin?

I like Bryce, DazStudio, Poser and Vue ... in alphabetical order. And I would probably like Carrara too, if I could find the time to become acquainted with it. Peace?

Exactly, once activated you can use it offline.
