Long time since I bought anything from DAZ but I’m a bit nonplussed, not to say also a little bit angry, about this install manager contraption
Haven’t time to go through everything in this and other threads so can I ask for a bit of quick help?
My set up is that I run Poser Installations on D: drive, with 24 differently categorised Runtimes, built up since first using Poser4. I have just bought 3 or 4 current products and want to install these as appropriate to my working environment, in the runtimes best suited for each
I have installed the downloader on a customised basis, to the max I seem to be able to customise it, to my d: drive, D:\program files, rather naively assuming that content would be downloaded there, and that I could then install it where I wanted it
Instead, I have now got folders called Daz3d and My Daz3d Library appearing in my C:\ drive, in the Public Documents folder complete with a new runtime there
Is that right? - ie is that a cast in stone default that I can’t vary? or have i screwed up the installer installation somehow?
If it is set firm, it’s a real problem as 1) I have limited space on my C drive, and even worse, hence the anger, who on earth do these people think they are to dump stuff willy nilly into what are my PUBLICLY shared documents without first asking my permission?
I can see the downloaded zips and can get them copied elsewhere to drag the stuff out where I want it, albeit it looks like having to be at least a three stage unzip, zip runtime only, unzip to target runtime process, which seems an utter waste of time
That’s especially so as I seem to now be unable to download the purchased files at all from my account without using this wretched manager? Again, am I doing something wrong, ie is there any way of just downloading the zipped content somehow, or the file in a farm of self installer that I have control over the target destination, or am I forced into using this thing and then fiddling about with the extracted data?
Any quick answers to these queries would be appreciated
