Why is it advised against installing to the folder where our content is currently located?
How does this work for those of us who use Poser and do not keep our content in the DAZ Studio structure? (My Documents / DAZ 3D/ Studio / My Library / Runtime)
Will the DAZ install manager have the option to install content in the Poser Runtime structure rather than the DAZ Studio structure? I don’t use DAZ Studio so don’t want my 3D Content folder cluttered with the DAZ Studio folders (Animals, Camera Presets, data, DAZ Studio Tutorials, Figures, Light Presets, Lights, People, Poses, Presets, Props, ReadMes, RTR, Scenes, Scripts, Shader Presets, Shaders, Uninstallers) when all I need is the Runtime folder.
I’m pretty sure content will be installed in that DAZ Studio structure, so I doubt I’ll want to install content through the DAZ Install Manager to my Runtimes. I’m sure it’s going to require as much (if not more) cleanup as the zip files do, and it’s far better to do that in a temp folder.
I can see where this will make things easier on those who don’t want to control how their content is organized, but it doesn’t seem to be flexible enough for those of us who don’t use DAZ Studio.
First: That is the default path, and as stated by mjc1016, better agrees with the EULA.
Second: While it is the default path, there is no requirement to use the default path, if for some reason that path does not suit.
Third: If a item of content is using absolute paths, it is broken, and needs to be reported in the bug tracker. All Content should be using relative paths.
