Some of my earlier zip files had an extra folder inside the zip and this is what causes problems if you install automatically.

All you need to do, once unzipped to a temporary folder is place the contents of the folders data, People and Runtime/textures into the same named folders in My Library.

There are no files missing that I know of, as other people have used them OK.

Hope Jaderail’s tutorial helps.

Hi Wendy, thanx for suggetion, wish it was that simple.  Think I figured out the problem I’m having, although I still haven’t figured out how to correctly install.  In my content library folder, Data 3 files exist 3_0, 4_0_2, Daz 3D,. 

When I open up your Data folder, goes to short cardigan folder and short sleeved shirt cardigan folder.  I am inserting these two folders into data folder, did not work, then Daz 3D folder, did not work.  People/runtime folders I understand.  Easy to follow. 

I go to clothing/genesis/cardigans drag/drop, I get error message uv-uvlayout.dsf file is missing. Which is in the data folder. 

That’s where I’m making my mistake, uv.dsf is incorrect path. 

I download OfficeSet from SCG .daz ext, manually installed, works fine.  I’m baffled, Lol !!!!  Maybe my Daz program has a glitch.  Well, till I figure this out, I’ll have a ninja Genesis model, Lol !!!  Hopefully Jader can shed some light smile

In my data folder there is a folder called Pusey Designs.  This is the folder that should have its contents placed into the Data/ Pusey Designs folder in your “My Library”

Well Fiddle Sticks. I’m so glad you have your content working. And the fact you did it yourself you will remember the steps much better. If you still want the mini Tut just let me know. I really do not believe you need it now.

Hi Jade, thanx for all your help.  I finally figured out how to load the content, but ran into another problem, when I try to apply materials, I keep getting a dialog now, could not find jpg !!  I do dialog search to locate jpg, it works.  So, this means I am not uploading materials correctly.  Also now, my genesis model is dark, as if there is no sunlight. 

Was wondering if I can reset Daz software to default start all over again.  I may have to uninstall/reinstall.

MiniTut would still be helpful, so I can make corrections or figure out what I’m doing wrong. 
Thanx
