Any word yet on the products that won’t install?

It seems a few of us are having trouble either downloading or running the install file for certain older Daz products?  When you click on the .exe install file, it just sits there and does nothing, not even a splash screen.

I just tried the two products I’m having problems with, and they still won’t open:  Bijou Character and Hair, and Gladiator Shoes for V4.
I’ve reset my downloads three times already (with four tries each reset).

Yes, this is a known issue. I would stop resetting for now.

Thanks, RH, I can stop trying to get my M3 Space Suit to install for now. When it gets resolved, can we get a heads up here? Props to ya!

I’d hope there will be some kind of announcement, yes.

There is some process adding additional bytes onto the end of the files that are being downloaded. I read in another thread that you can use a hex editor to open them and remove these extra bytes. They’re pretty easy to do as well as the extra bytes seem to be a short text message about an error in php, and an error with consecutive downloads, that I have found myself. Once you remove these, the installers work fine.
