More on topic - I believe the reason why some people are not getting the latest .172 Beta is because of caching issues. Try to clear browser cache and reset your download again. It could also be that there’s a hiccup with caching between DAZ and their cloud server thingy. When I purchased Carrara I got .172 just like I should have so I’m guessing older customers might experience caching trouble.

Why would anything on my computer influence the contents of a reset?

Because if you have previously downloaded something and it is still in your browser memory (cache) you will more than likely be presented with the version that is already in your cache. Do note, I’m not advocating that this is without a doubt the case. I’m just offering a possible explanation for what is happening. Someone will have to test this to be sure.

I do not believe I ever downloaded the betas, so it should not have been cached.  I cleared anyways and retried the download and it remains to be .132.

Is there a way I can get the latest version?  Will .132 work with the current serial code?

All I can suggest then is contacting someone at DAZ and asking them what’s cooking. Like I said, I received the .172 beta with my purchase last month so I really can’t imagine why some would get a different version.

We are including the 8.5 Beta in your purchase of Carrara 8 or Carrara 8 Pro. You can run the production build of Carrara 8.1 side by side with this Beta build.

I’m sorry, but where is the link for downloading the CARRARA 8.5.0.172 beta?

Thanks Stu!  I was waiting to confirm that before I installed.  I also started a ticket about getting the latest version.

There is no link anymore.  If you want to test the beta, reset your itemized purchase history.  A copy of the beta will be included.

Reset your Carrara 8 download. You’ll find a beta for 8.5 with your other installers. At this stage it seems people are getting different versions of the Beta so if you don’t get .172 file a ticket.

Reset your Carrara 8 download. You’ll find a beta for 8.5 with your other installers. At this stage it seems people are getting different versions of the Beta so if you don’t get .172 file a ticket.

I reset my order and now I have 80 files in my available downloads. Not one of them is named 8.5 or beta.

2 files are named Carrara 8 Pro Upgrade - Mac64bit - zip - mac and 1 file is named Carrara 8 Pro Upgrade - Carrara 8 Application Mac 64 - zip - mac. Which one is the beta?
