A Possible Quick Fix for Genesis Figure/Content Not Showing Up in Daz Studio Pro 4.5
I thought I'd share my experiences with other DAZ Studio users who might have the same problem.
I installed DAZ Studio 4.5 Pro and all associated downloads including the Content Management Service but could not see any Content or Genesis figures in my Smart Content Window.
So I rebooted, un-installed and re-installed everything. Still nothing.
So later after much hair-pulling, I uninstalled and attempted another re-installation but this time I did the following when installing the Genesis Essentials (after installing DAZ Studio first) which proceeds as follows:
I. Select Components: (make sure everything is checked)
II. Path Selection Type: (select option: Choose from a pre-defined list of mapped DAZ Studio directories)
III. Choose Installation Path: (from the drop-down list, choose C:/ Program Data/DAZ/My Daz Library)
IV. Choose "next" until the installation process is completed.
V. Start DAZ Studio 4.5. When the "Import content metadata for the following products" window pops up I selected all the options except "User Data Overrides Product Data" because I had not installed any content (since this was a clean install) . If you have content installed, make your own decision.
VI. A window should appear that says, "Processing metadata files"
Once that completed, I had content AND the Genesis figure (finally)!
Before this, I had NO content.
Hope this info helps someone else!
