>> “Now can we go back to the original topic please”
With all due respect, it was germaine to the original topic.
Further, if as you say DAZ is in the process of converting to zips over installers, why not do it with the new products *as well as* the older ones?
Perhaps if they had, situations like the one in this thread would be totally unnecessary. You unzip, get a product runtime, and be done with it. Instead… well, we have four pages on what the buyer had to go through. Yep, makes all the sense in the world…
