I do not have the option to choose between card or integrated graphics. My issue came with the installer failing to uninstall the previous version halfway through uninstalling it, causing it to fail every subsequent time.
EDIT: Another problem I encounter with the installation. It fails to install the Daz Content Management Service. It simply says it encountered an error, and then carries on installing the rest of Daz Studio as if nothing happened.
Yes, I’ve had these problems again, as with every version of DS4 and 4.5 I’ve installed, and now also the DSON importer and the one plugin installer from the DS4.5 beta I installed (the Dynamic clothing control). It really has become very tiresome.
There were some slight differences this time, making a slight improvement.
As always before, the DS installer, the DSON importer installer and the Dynamic Clothing control installer, when the uninstaller for the previous version ran, the uninstaller errored out with a ‘segmentation fault’. On return to the installer after the acknowledging the uninstaller error, the installer promptly crashed. It really should not be beyond the wit of man to design things so that the installer doesn’t crash in cases when the uninstall fails.
In all three cases, the errored uninstall DID uninstall the existing uninstall .dat file.
In the case of the Dynamic Clothing Control installer and the DSON importer, the lack of the uninstall .dat file meant further install attempts with the uninstall trying to run then errored due to the absence of the uninstall .dat file, the installer then crashing again after the uninstall fail. As the Dynamic Clothing control importer has no option to choose to install without uninstalling, I had to go into the Program files to manually delete the uninstall .exe to then finally get the installer to run. The DSON Importer installer thankfully DOES have an option not to uninstall, so that could be run picking that option without having to manually delve and delete the uninstall .exe.
The marginal positive change with the actual DS installer was that on the initial uninstaller segmentation error followed by the installer crash, this time, for the first time, it had deleted the uninstall .exe AS WELL AS the uninstall .dat file it’s always deleted. So this time the installer did run on the second attempt without trying to uninstall and therefore failing, and therefore not needing me to manually find and delete the uninstall .exe to get the installer to run.
But then, as previous times and as with you, the CMS installer ended saying there’d been an unspecified error (but I don’t use the CMS ... but still ....)
And at the end of the installs of all three - DS, DSON Importer and Dynamic Clothing control - there was a message about an error in creating the new uninstallers, citing an inability to access the uninstall file, even though it did create (non-empty) uninstall .exe and .dat files for each.
Very tiresome. These DAZ programs are the only programs I have any trouble installing. I can’t even remember the last time I got error messages, let alone crashes and needs to manually delete files, on any other program install, whether fresh installs or upgrades to new versions. Yet I’ve had this with every DS 4 and 4.5.
