I just bought a few items and now the email says I MUST use this install manager, I THINK i got in put in but no clue on how to use it.  Why even HAVE an install manager…..I prefer the old system where ya click and download, like Renderosity has.  So someone please give me a hand before I lose 30 dollars with of stuff here.


And STOP changing the website, Daz!

You don’t have to use the DIM, but it is helpful with updates and knowing what is or is not installed.

But where do I do the actual download for what I bought?  I can’t seem to find it now.

At the top of the page : My account -> Product Library, you can sort the list by purchase date.

Are we going to be able to filter out the Mac files again, or is that feature gone for good?

As Daz is doing away with separate PC exe and Mac zips and doing now zips that work for all, we don’t need a filter anymore.

I like Bryce, DazStudio, Poser and Vue ... in alphabetical order. And I would probably like Carrara too, if I could find the time to become acquainted with it. Peace?

I think it’s great that DAZ is finally dropping the installers, and I know that the older content (5+ years, it seems) is gradually being converted over to ZIPs, but the newer content and content updates are still being provided as installers. I’ve just spent the last several days updating my content library, so I know this is being done. If the intent is to eventually have everything available only as ZIPs, then why not make the new content and content updates available as ZIPs also, and skip the bother of creating the installer versions?

Ehm ... usually they are there - or should be.
As far as I know the items from new ones back to V3 should be converted.
Exemptions being Shaders, Plugins and Software.
If you look at the download in the new Product library:
At the moment there are zips declared as DIM (those are the new one size fits PC and Mac zips and you don’t need DIM), PC exes and Mac Zips

Just looked through several recent purchases and they are all available as .exe installers, Mac zips and DIM zips from the Product Library page.

Actually, the files ARE available as both a ZIP and an installer—I guess I was confused in that, traditionally, the ZIP files were Mac files, which is why I wondered about the ability to filter them out. I wasn’t aware that they worked for PC as well. Sorry for the confusion.

Only those where you see a green “DIM” in front ...

I have no intention of using DIM, so I wouldn’t mind the ability to filter those out, as well.

The ones marked DIM are the zip files (the other zip files are the Mac files).


Using the DIM is just an automated method of downloading and installing the new zips .

I just wished they had used the word “NEW” instead of DIM ... it would make for less confusion.
