Just purchased Victoria 6 bundle. When I try to access content I get msgs that key elements are missing. I have located these files on my pc. The result of all of this is a boxy skeleton in grey.
Did you also download and install the Genesis 2 Female Starter Essentials? It's among the items associated with DAZ Studio itself, or the DSON Importer, and should be reachable from there is you use the Product Library page.
Thx for your reply. i went to the Product library Page and clicked on all items which seems to put them in content areas. But when I try to access any of them i get a grey box covering the anatomy area...( head for example) .
1. I load DAZ 4.6 and close the lessons popup
2. I select the grey avatar in viewport
3. click on a victoria 6 hairstyle and the block appears around head
i have located Genesis 2 Female Starter Essentials in my directory, but do not know what to do with them... I click on them and stuff happens but does not fix probs.
Obviously I am a noob in this discipline...
Are you unzipping the download manually, or are you using the DAZ Install Manager? Where are your content directories?
after purchase I clicked download on the summary page
later I think I downloaded an install manager and used that
and when I found what looked like unzippable files I clicked them...
email verification I went through that download sequence...
What should I have done?
my pc is 64bit
Either will work, but the instructions are different. Yes, the install manager is 32 bit but that's all it needs (32 bit software runs on a 64 bit OS).
I will be out of the loop for about a week.
It seems to me that I need to find and unzip a key file...
I am new on windows 8 and finding stuff is somewhat confusing at times....
thx again and I will resume when and if find the files ...
I have located genesis 2 files and Victoria 6 files on PC. I have tried to locate various items related to these files on DAZ 4.6. In the default search I see grey print items and when I click them...I see stuff appear in my content windows... when I click on them I get grey boxy skeleton figure. In my selection of figures I have Genesis, Kids 4 listed... while trying to solve this I clicked on Fiery Genesis and when I looked in the content windows I saw Genesis 2 ... selected it.. but still get the boxy avatars. I noticed also that I no longer have any downloads on the bundle. I believe these are now on this PC. Finally, (fwhew) I have PCs here and in another state... and if we solve this I planned to download the files in my other PC...so I can work in either location.
What info do you need? what is name of files which control the screen figure?
thx again for you patience and help
This means that the folder you are placing the content in, or that the Install Manager is pointing to, is not a folder you have selected as a DAZ Studio Content Directory in DAZ Studio. Where exactly is the Victoria 6.duf file located on your machine?
Users/Public/Public Documents/My DAZ 3D Library/People/genesis 2 Female/Characters
In DS go to Edit > Preferences > Content Library > Content Directory Manager, expand the "DAZ Studio Formats" and "Poser Formats" sections, and make sure the following is listed in both:
C:/Users/Public/Public Documents/My DAZ 3D Library
I changed the content location to C:/Users/Public/Public Documents/My DAZ 3D Library and Lots of stuff is available including some which appears to be part of the Victoria 6 bundle. However, I do not see Victoria in files or products in smart content.. and the content selections list does not include Genesis 2 .
but this has unlocked much.
do I need to redo genesis 2 starter program ?
? why is this in the General Freepozitory ?
