    So it installs successfully, but won't launch? What happens when you try to launch it?

    Can you describe as the process you're seeing when it crashes, ..and what you're doing to install the program.

    Are you uninstalling the previous Daz Studio program ?

    I uninstall Daz3d ,then reinstall Daz 3d. It says it successfully installed and when I click on it ,nothing happens. I did this on my F and E drives. I claeaned both drives of junk as well as the registry.

    So, "nothing happens" at all. ?

    What's your system, Mac / PC ?

    If it's a PC,. Can you open "task Manager" and view the Applications , Processes, and Services which are running,
    If Daz Studio isn't listed as running... Try Right clicking on the Daz Studio Icon, and selecting Run as Administrator.

    Also ..make sure the DazContentmanagementservice is running

    you can also Browse to the Programs files/ Daz3D folder, and try running Studio from there.

    Hi :)

    What's your graphics card ? and .did you update the driver because you were having graphics issues, or just because it's a new driver version.

    Since the Graphics driver on your system has been changed recently, and the software was working before this, then is would seem likely that there is some conflict.
    I'd suggest doing a "Rollback" to the previous graphics driver.
    I'd also suggest you contact Daz3D support and make them aware of that issue.

    Hope it helps :)

    I solved it, or it solved itself. After delting it, I went to into the registry and cleaning it and reinstalled and it booted
