Finally into the main page/ scene ok but no idea why it’s saying the Genesis file doesn’t exist….?

If you installed the Genesis Essentials file into My Library, then that is correct, but the program is looking for Genesis.DSF and it is now Genesis.DUF in the new install for 4.5.0.114.

In the Content Directory Manager in your image, you should delete the first two entries in DAZ Studio Formats, and change the last one to point at the My Library folder in Documents and Settings.  I think the first entry in Poser Formats is the correct path by the look of things, so change the last entry in DAZ Studio Formats to match that

You only need the first entry in the Poser Formats area, delete the other three.

Nearly there.

Thanks. How do I change the DSF to DUF ?

The Genesis Essentials installer has the correct file already in it. and it should have replaced the previous one.  It makes me wonder if the Esssentials file was installed correctly?

If you go to Edit > Preferences > Startup, the first item is Load File, and you can change it there, or use Browse to find the right one.  You can also set that Load File to ‘None’, and then it wont look for it at all.  That might be easier for the moment, until we see if your toehr content is correct or not.

The Load file was already set to “None” with the same “Resource Error” message then appearing on start-up….

I don;t see how that could happen to be honest?  Untick the box for ‘Load File’, and it will not look for anything (I just tried it).

Have you changed the DAZ Studio and Poser Formats in Preferences?  DS should not be looking in the Resources folder at all.

Unticked the box too and great no “Resource Error” message appeared just an empty scene. Yes I’d already deleted the entries in Daz Studio and Poser Formats immediately after your post.

My Genesis,DUF is in the folder above that one, not in Characters, but in the Genesis folder itself.

I don;t think you installed the Essentials file to the correct loacation.  When installing that file, 14812_GenesisStarterEssentials_1.3_trx.exe, it should be installed to the My Library folder.  My Library should be the last part of the path, Not Studio, or Character or DAZ 3D, but whatever the path is, it should end with My Library.  Then everything will go into the correct place.

You could try re-installing it again.

Thanks. I haven’t yet re-installed as I thought I try this experiment first and lo the silver figure appeared. Or would it be better to re install again just in case ?

I would leave it for now, and have a play around with it.  It seems to be correct now anyway, and the right figure is loading.

See if you can add textures and clothing to the Genesis figure, and if you can’t find the content, start a new thread as this one is getting a bit long.


We got there in the end, well done, so now you should be able to at least load Genesis, and play around with the shapes.

Everything that you buy from the store, or anywhere else, gets installed to the My Library folder, even Posser Format content too.

Always make sure that the last part of the path is the My Library folder, and everything will be put into the right place.  Older content like Victoria 4 and Michael 4 are in Poser Format, but they still get installed to the My Library folder.  You can find them in the Content Library tab under Poser Formats > My Library > Figures.
