On a related Product Library note, how many of you are coming across pages with no “view store page” link at the bottom of the description text? I came across one soon after the Product Library was introduced, and another a couple of days ago when I was hunting something down that I’d bought a long time ago. How widespread a problem is this?

Presumably there will be no link to a store page for a vaulted or otherwise no-longer purchasable item.

<nod> That’s it, I just checked a bunch of the very first things I bought nearly 10 years ago, and none of the inactives have that store page link. Which could be anything from a minor nuisance to a major showstopper if there was anything important on that store page. Worth trying a feature request, maybe?

You could, but I suspect DAZ will be reluctant to have pages for dead products, though the Rendo pages are occasionally useful.

I didn’t mean letting the “inactive” pages be open for anyone to link to. If you don’t have an item, you won’t have a Product Library page for it, so you won’t have a store page link. If there are no other links to “inactive” store pages, does that sound better and more likely for DAZ to accept?

I put an item in my cart before I came here and revisited this debacle. Just deleted the item in the cart.

I just bought something, and are about to regret it… :-(

The product I just bought (“SPEX for Genesis”) shows no manual download link, which means I can’t download it….

What I am to make out of it, is this a temporary bug about to be fixed (some time next week), is this a new feature (no more download links for Poser users)? For similar reasons I’ve been keeping away from DAZ lately, so if please someone can fill me in on the latest store policy….

Usually, yes, but this time there isn’t.  :-(
More specifically, there isn’t a manual download link, there is only a “Download Manager” link, but I don’t use that app, I’m on Poser (and the computer I’m downloading to isn’t the computer with Poser anyway). I’ve been using the manual downloads till now, but this time there isn’t one.

oh, that is tricky then.  well I am more or less poser only user these days, and I did decide to get the download manager. I chose an install folder that I then move to my external runtimes folder.  At least you can see what you have downloaded and get updates.  it isn’t so bad having the DIM.

Well, DAZ decided, didn’t they…  :-D
Unfortunately I can’t use the Download Manager even if I wanted, for my Poser computer isn’t connected to Internet, and it’s out of the question to pollute the work computer I otherwise use to download stuff.
I need something I can download and transfer to another computer.

Is the manual option showing for you now? If it isn’t, can you take a screen shot and post it here? All products (with the exception of 1 which is specific for Install Manager) should have options to download manually. If any product doesn’t show products, such as the OGUv3 posted previously, it is because somehow the product got modified or, more specifically, the download list got changed mistakenly and messed up the download options. Where as all products should be downloadable manually, sometimes mistakes are made with products that happen after our initial testing to make sure the product is ready to be released. That being said, I looked at this product in my own account and see the manual download option, so if it still isn’t showing for you, it is an indication that there is a bug which hasn’t been found or experienced before that you’re hitting which is preventing the file from showing up, so if you can show what your screen looks like, we can start tracking it down and fix it.
