Also if im looking in the right thread in the above link thats a 025 code, we need a 026

There is no hexagon version 2.6
 
What’s the name of your exe, and what’s its CRC32?

I don’t have a serial key either for mine.  I’m trying to teach my cousin’s son modelling and there is no serial key in this account.  It’s very frustrating!

Do we have to email DAZ for it now?  I’m not going to dig through hundreds of posts on a forum archive I’m not sure I can even get to and don’t have a link for.

DaremoK3, thanks so much for the tip. It took, like, 15 min to find (only that long because the search is broken). Hardly too long to spend for a great piece of software, free.

P.S MY EXE IS A 2.5.1.79MAC32, but heres the thing why its asking for a 026 code in the build it says its a 2.6.0?

We have flagged this up, and are still chasing for a solution.

Sorry to throw another spanner in the works, for those who are saying “look under account settings”.

You don’t need to register for an account to download the free versions. Even if you do register for an account there is no longer an “add to cart” button, only a “download now” button which automatically starts the download.

I, too, have got the .exe files, not the .zip files. The only readme file I have is a .htm and just opens a welcome/support document with broken links.

I’ve emailed support, but clearly they’re inundated.

Can’t find the serial number on the forum, and don’t have time to scour every single post. Can someone repost here?

It’s asking for a code in this format:

HDZSTND-026-???????-???-???-???????

You know, from a troubleshooting standpoint, there’s a number of interesting anomolies occurring here, such as:

In this case, it appears that the posted serial number worked.

But in these cases:

It’s asking for a code in this format:
HDZSTND-026-???????-???-???-???????

 
We have the right installer name, but an unexpected error message. It’s asking for a serial number for a version that (as far as anyone knows) doesn’t yet exist.
 
This is proof of one thing: The installer that is asking for the “026” format IS NOT THE SAME INSTALLER as that which is found in the ZIP file that was freely available prior to the website revamp.
 
And this points at another anomoly: many people here are speaking of having downloaded an EXE file alone, and not a ZIP file.
 
Yet ever since the revamp, clicking on the download link from my end has ONLY resulted in a 404 error. IOW, I can’t get to ANY download, regardless of whether it’s an EXE or a ZIP. The link I have to the software is http://freedownloads.daz3d.com/Hexagon_2.5.1.79_Win32.zip , but the file simply doesn’t exist.
 
So I have to ask: Are some people in some places able to download an executable while others can’t download anything at all?

WHOA!!! Hold on!
 
It appears DAZ’s brand-spanking-new website has a mini-bug, and the answer to my last question in my previous post is “yes”. I just poked around the “products” tab, and found that the product links take me to 2 DIFFERENT download addresses, even though to the uninitiated eye they look identical.
 
Clicking one of the links takes you here:
http://www.daz3d.com/products/hexagon/hexagon-what-is-hexagon
This page has a download button, but clicking it returns an “HTTP 404 not found” error.
The button on this page links to http://freedownloads.daz3d.com/Hexagon_2.5.1.79_Win32.zip
 
Clicking a different link takes you here:
http://www.daz3d.com/products/hexagon/hexagon-what-is-hexagon/
Note the backslash at the end - it’s CRITICAL. The page that appears looks identical, but clicking the download button initiates a download for an EXE file…still not the ZIP file.
The button on this page links to http://free.downloads.s3.amazonaws.com/Hexagon_2.5.1.79_Win32.exe?AWSAccessKeyId=AKIAJVLM2RKESISABG2A&Expires=1354573939&Signature=oq3Vm1luSEYQfmkYQPMqU7GCVnE=&FixForIE;=.exe
 
AND FINALLY, WE GET TO THE BOTTOM LINE HERE:
 
I just downloaded the EXE from the above link and checked its CRC32. It MATCHES the file in the former ZIP file, so the posted serial number found in the archives WILL WORK.
 
The CRC32 of your executable NEEDS TO BE “EE7D93A3” in order for the posted serial to work.
 
If you don’t have a CRC generator, you can use WinZIP or WinRAR to zip/rar your executable, and then look inside the zip/rar to see what its CRC32 is.
 
NO OTHER CRC WILL WORK, so the posted serial number won’t be any good on any other version other than the free 2.5.1.79 version.
 
To fix this once and for all, if your CRC doesn’t match, then download the EXE from the above link and use the posted serial number from the archives.

I’ve found a Serial number !!!!!!!!

But - Read FIRST

1. Change your Computer Clock time to e.g. 2010
2. Start Hexagon
3. Type in this Code
HDZSTND-025-0000003-GWF-001-EBTNWXV (Expires 9/27/11)

F.A.Q.
What will happen if I change back to the real time?
-The License will be invalid, it asks you for a new one


Hope this will help you, to work with Hexagon smile
I will looking for a better way.

In the meantime, a LOT of people are being nailed by this revamp.
 
Since I was the one who posted the serial in the archives in the first place, I know EXACTLY where it is. May I at least post a link to that archive for the benefit of all?
 
This is an entirely benevolent excercize. There’s neither intent nor possibility of piracy or misuse of the posted serial since it applies ONLY to a specific installer that has always been intended by DAZ to be freely available to anyone who wants it.
