Since my original post is lost in the mess, I will post it here.

I bought the Poser version of the new Predatron Hero fig. When I downloaded the Poser files I instead ended up with DAZ Studio ones instead.

1: is Predatron aware?
2: when should I expect a fix?

Thanx!

We have let DAZ know about this, I don’t know when a fix will be ready - soon, I would hope. It might be worth trying to reset your order and downloading again, in case it’s already been fixed (but try it only once - don’t use up your resets in case you need them later).

Please do check this now - I’ve been told the files have been checked and are correctly associated.

Ok, this is day 2 of wrong loaders in my file section. My Poser loaders are coming out as DAZ Studio installs….


Today it were these files:

Ancient Prophecies
Installers14977_AncientPropheciesDS_1.0_trx.exe - PC - DAZ Studio14977_AncientPropheciesDS_1.0_trx.zip - Mac - DAZ Studio14977_AncientPropheciesPs_1.0_dpc.exe - PC - Poser14977_AncientPropheciesPs_1.0_dpc.zip - Mac - Poser
14977

Yesterday (and STILL today) it is these files:

Considering how much I just spent over the last two days…..I am probably not in the mindset to explain my displeasure…....

Is anyone else getting DAZ Studio loaders when they order Poser products?

I’m on day 2 and I’m not happy…..

If those are the files showing up on your downloads page… the .dpc.exe (or .zip) files should be the Poser files.

Ancient prophecies is displaying the files for both Poser and DS, which I think is as it should be.

The problem is, they aren’t loading as POSER when I go to install….

Just to be clear (and I’m not even a moderator, so I’m just trying to ask questions to help others figure this all out)

You download the Poser files, but when you install, you’re getting .duf, .dsa, .dsb, .dvo (or whatever the data file extension is), etc?  It’s not a matter of the Poser files installing in the wrong place (which is still an issue)

Maybe try clearing cache and downloading again?  Maybe something’s acting up on your browser and the links are wrong?  (Not likely, I know, but I like to clear the obvious stupid stuff before I start looking for more serious problems.)

AH!
It’s the loading into wrong location that is the issue. So this is ongoing?

No, I meant that installing in the wrong place is also an issue, as is getting the wrong files.  As far as I know, this is not an ongoing issue, but I haven’t purchased much in the way of new items this PA sale.

I loaded into a new folder and it seems they were going to the wrong program.

Come on DAZ. I’ve been a customer for almost 10 years….this many mistakes is NOT like you.

Never let the installers choose the install path, always specify it yourself.

The problem here is I choose the Runtimes, but if it’s trying to load into DAZ Studio then it’s not doing what it should.

Yeah, they knew their numbers were low so they’ve been practicing!  8-o

Y’know, that term scares me.  Why is a doctor always just “practicing”, or a new doctor “setting up a practice”?  It’s not so much that he hasn’t got it right yet, but that I’m worried about who he’s practicing on. 8-o

I’m sooo confused…  I’ve come to grasp a little of the nature of reality and the answer to life, the universe, and everything.  I even have an inkling as to who and what I am. Auuummmmm…
But please, please, who the hell are you?  And why are you trampling my roses?
