NEVER CHANGE A RUNNING SYSTEM

How about a system with two broken legs being dragged along by a team of programmers?

it seems that you are very confident wink

No, just accepting the judgment that, while the new site will take the full efforts of the web team for a while to get working as desired, the old site was taking that same full-time effort just to keep from collapsing.  I hope that they are correct and that, once the initial problems have been resolved, they will have time for making actual improvements.

have a look at the other thread to this issue, someone have found the problem I think, there are some more bits in the “new” files than in the “old” the guy has posted what he has done

I don’t know if it will help in this instance as I haven’t tried installing the 2 or 3 things I’ve purchased since the new store opened, but on other sites where I’ve had problems when left-clicking on download links, I instead right-click and choose “Save As” to download, and then everything is fine.

Again, I’m not sure if it will worth with the new store downloads because of the known installer issues, but I think it might be worth a try.

well because I didn`t know that it was a “new site” thing I habe downloaded all the stuff all 4 times :( but at the other thread to this issue there is an explanation posted by a member how to handle the problem by using a hex editor and it worked quite easy and well.

I have created a small utility to strip the bad appended data from the installers.  If anyone wants it let me know.

My utility is available at:


http://ovbi.org/gallery/v/krsears/utilities/fix_daz.zip.html


It is zipped to survive bad downloaders.  This is on a low bandwidth server so don’t get impatient.  It is only about 250K.


If the number of people downloading it gets to be too large I’ll move it to my high bandwidth servers.


EDIT:  I coded it to only do a single file at a time.  Hopefully DAZ will have a fix before this becomes a problem.
