I have bought a number of figures were it is just impossible to make the DAZ exe file work under Mac. I click but it is not executing (or it is hidden somewhere. I can’t load the file in POSER 7. Surprizingly some work…and some don’t. Anyone who can help me with this?
Many thanks for your help guys/girls.
couple of question to grasp where and what goes wrong.
(a) What are the exact filenames of the files you downloaded (very important), including the file extension?
(b) What version of Mac OS X are you using?
With answers to these questions I can most probably help you, but are some “golden rules” anyway.
(1) Mac OS X 10.7 does not have the Rosetta PPC emulation in it, so old PPC code cannot run. The old Wise installers are all PPC based, and wont run under 10.7 (easily anyway You can run a Mac OS X 10.6.8 or Windows using Virtual Box and install into an empty runtime, and then zip the results).
(2) Old installers are compressed with Stuffit (.sit) and not Zip (.zip). Stuffit Expander can be freely downloaded here: http://www.stuffit.com/mac-expander.html.
(3) Often those old .sit installers contains the old Wise installers see (1), but in the shift between the older WIse and the Newer BitRock installers, some bitrock installers are compressed using Stuffit.
(4) Really really old Wise installers (from 2004 or earlier) are 68k installers and they wont run at all, but those can easily be installed using SheepShaver, http://sheepshaver.cebix.net/ same ,installation procedures as (1)
