Not so! Was one of the first folders I checked… Nice try!

Your answer still does not explain why I’m Admin and can run DS4pro or DS4.5 and you needed a new account.

It seems odd, because the only other problem I’ve heard of involving different user accounts was the reverse—an account with Standard User privileges wouldn’t run DS4, but one with Admin privileges could.

Don’t know what to say, but this whole experience has left a sour taste. I’m finished with this thread.

I see that the OP has stormed off, however for those left:  I’ve seen this behavior on Win7 systems with numerous software titles.  In the majority of cases it was a “security package” causing the problem.  Check that a recent update hasn’t made any changes.  Several packages have increased the restrictions on “Administrator” accounts due to new threats in the wild.  In some cases, Admin accounts have been set to only be able to write to the disk for installation purposes, but do no TCP port activity.  (This is to stop Trojans from receiving commands from remote servers)


This is a specific problem for DS4 as this will block DS4 from talking to the CMS service.  Unfortunately, an error condition will not be flagged as the software will just devour the packets and DS4 will wait for the timeout periods to expire before continuing.  Below is a list of the transactions that DS4 wants to execute upon startup.  If these don’t get an error return, they will EACH wait for a timeout condition… in effect looking like a lockup.

EDIT:  It seems that the “code” blocks aren’t working…


The easiest way to test for this is to temporarily disable any security software, reboot, and see if the previously running DS4 starts working again.  If it does, then one has to make a series of decisions on how they use their systems in the “brave new Windows world.”


If you are seeing the behavior where a piece of software suddenly stops working, check to see if you are running as an Admin user.  If so, you may need to run that software as a restricted user if you want to continue to use your “security” suite.

I seem to be having this problem or something similar. Daz studio 4 has been sitting on my PC for a few months now without much use. Was just going to rough out a composition with figures so I tried to run DS4. All I get is a busy mouse pointer for a couple of seconds and then nothing. No window activity or popup dialog.

Was wondering if there are any start up or service dependencies that I had disabled that Daz requires to run.

I disabled a few things recently that didn’t seem to be used. 3ds Max and photoshop both run fine. As does all the other software I have tried. Only DS4 Pro isn’t working. It was working a couple of months ago when I last booted it up to start a painting but then got another contract job and didn’t use it again.

I’m running win7 ultimate 64bit, 8gb ram, UAC disabled. And DS4 was working last time I tried it a few weeks ago.

I have since uninstalled the 64 bit version, deleted all folders in program files and my docs after uninstalling addons.

Reinstalled 64 bit and also tried 32 bit with the same result. A busy mouse icon for a couple of seconds and then nothing.

Make sure that the CMS process (service) is running and that your firewall/virus software isn’t blocking TCP port 27997 for localhost.  Another thing to watch for is that you didn’t install the content to a protected area of your filesystem.

Ok all the services and ports were started and running but it wouldn’t run. Strange that it ran before, I figured if it worked before it should work now, but it doesn’t.

I tried creating a standard user account on the same computer and navigated program files to the DS4 folder and ran the program from there (didn’t appear in my start programs). And DS4 ran perfectly from the new standard account.

So at least I can get it to run, and I can attest to the odd admin vs standard user account information stated previously. Windows does seem to be treating the two accounts differently.

I’m reasonably sure Kendall nailed it, but seeing the OP date on which the failure started manifesting itself makes me wonder if it’s not just a virus going off on the 4th of July.
