The V4.2 should be installed to the content folder DS made. Which one and were it is depends on if you do a standard install of DS or a custom install. Just point the installer to your content folder. The V4 Base should be the first installer you run or the others will not SEE it.
You just install it. Many do, But as said for V4.2 installers to work you must install the V4 Base figure into the content folder first. That would be the Victoria4.exe then install the other files, they will then see the base installed and then function.
i guess asking for help was a complete waste of time ,all i want to know is how do i set up the file paths for daz when i install it so that my content will work that means a full install map please from the begining
I have sent a help request to the two best best DS Guru’s I know. I’m not able to help with installing the main file to a different drive. I was only trying to help with the content. Content I know very well. I was thinking you had DS running for that drive. Please give them time to see your posts. They are not on-line at this time.
Exactly what are you trying to install? Victoria 4.2 is a complete figure, it doesn’t have any pre-requisites. However, if you chose Poser as the target application it will look for the Poser executable, which you don’t have (and you wouldn’t want to install there if you did). Choose DAZ Studio as the target application and, if you are using the defaults, point the installer to \DAZ 3D\Studio\My Library in your documents folder (if the folder isn’t there you didn’t use the defaults).
That’s an updater, not the full figure - have you bought Victoria 4.2 from the store? Where did you get the file from - it’s not on the product page, as I thought might be the case, but if it’s not clearly labelled as to what it is then an update to the description is needed.
