It sounds like you kept putting the path to DS in the place for 64-bit software installations.
Okay, now you are sounding like CS.
As I said earlier. I assigned the directory ONCE. DIM decided to create multiple sub-directories every time it did an update.
I certainly didn’t create all the DS software directories that were listed under applications.
I too was taken in by the hype about DIM and gave it a try when it first came out. I quickly learned that DIM was not the end-all and be-all that DAZ would have you believe. It was, in my opinion, simply another “dim” (i.e. not bright) software product released into the wild long before it was weaned from the lab. I have since come to regard DIM as an acryonym for “Doesn’t Install Much”, or “Damn Infuriating Monster”. Perhaps the magic of time has resulted in DIM improving to the point of usefulness now but I still avoid it like the plague and still manually download the “zip” or “exe” files and install into my precious library manually where if something gets boogered I can only blame myself.
