New build is much faster.. right up until it crashes on me. It is some sort of 3delight error and I have a feeling its not so much a studio issue as a Lauren issue. I installed the beta and somehow did not uninstall the previous version. So for the last little while I have had the beta (which crashed) and the older version side by side. I didn’t fiddle because the old version was still working and I needed to get some work done. What all do I need to seek and destroy in order to get a functional version back? I did uninstall the beta (via windows programs uninstall) and have uninstalled and installed the new release twice now.
It depends on how far you want to go for a clean install. I usually perform the following:
Uninstall DS4. Make sure you uninstall all the plug-ins, etc. Once everything is uninstalled, make sure you have no DAZStudio4 directories in either or both:
C:\Program Files\DAZ 3D
C:\Program Files (x86)\DAZ 3D
Also stop the Content Manager Service and uninstall. Goto
%ProgramData%\DAZ 3D\Content Management Service\databases
in Windows Explorer, and delete the database files.
Reboot. Before reinstalling, open Regedit. Do a search for Keys only, using this as the search string:
Do a search in HKEY_CURRENT_USER
It should find the following:
Right-click on Studio4 in the left pane, and select Delete.
Reboot once again, and re-install. You will need to re-import your directories, Metadata, etc, in DS4 as all the settings are now gone.
ONLY DO REGISTRY PART IF YOU KNOW WHAT YOU ARE DOING!
