So… after a decade away from Poser I recently returned and bought the recent huge V4 bundle. After some hiccups with the new shop I even downloaded it successfull, but now ran into an install error with the V4 CreatureCreator morphs.
Whenever I try to install this one, it rejects the target folder claiming:
“Victoria 4_2 Creature Creator Morphs” is an add-on for “Victoria 4.2” and they must be installed in the same location. Please choose a different install location or install the required products first.”
Of course I *did* install Victoria 4.2, all parts, made sure that the “initialization” after the main install took place and was successful, and made sure that the CreatureCreatorMorphs-Installer pointed to the previously installed Victoria folder (both the enclosing folder or the included Runtime, which makes no difference). I additionally tried to add Morphs++ (which worked), but CreatureCreatorMorphs didn’t like that as well, and tried it a final time after installing *everything* else from the huge bundle into the Victoria folder - still to no avail.
Of course I checked the FAQ like this:
Which doesn’t help as well because I already did everything mentioned there, and of course I filed an official Help Ticket, which is now “open” for several days and probably will remain “open” until autumn, or whenever the bigger problems will eventually be solved.
So I thought I give it a try here. According to Auntie Google this error seems to be well known and well spread for several years, and also seemed to affect lots of Stephanie 4s and The Girl 4s as well. But the only suggestions there were to “install it again” (I tried it 6 times, so why bother) or to re-download the installer. I didn’t do that, but since I’m on Mac I got the installer in a .zip file, and the .zip file was valid. If the download would be damaged, the .zip wouldn’t expand. But it did.
Does anybody know what CreatureCreatorMorphs is actually looking for, and where/how to get it in order to install?
