Install Manager Question
Hello. I just purchased a new PC specifically so I could run Daz Studio 4.5. So, I needed to reinstall all the Daz items I purchased over the years onto my new PC. I was able to do so for most of the items using Install Manager (IM.) However, for those items not available on IM yet, I had to log onto the Daz website and reset my downloads. But those items installed are not being read by the DAZ 4.5 program. Daz cannot locate them, even though I had them downloaded to the same directory as the files that were downloaded using IM. The only way to access these files is to use the “Import” feature from the file menu, which I do not like doing. I also noticed that items installed with IM are each accompanied by a corresponding “Daz shared configuration file” which is a small bluish gray icon with the letter “D” in it. When I reset my downloads online to install manually without using IM, these “shared configuration” files are missing. What is the reason for this and what can I do to get the program to locate my files that were installed without using IM? Are these missing “shared configuration” files what is preventing Daz from finding content not installed using IM?
