Okay, browse to C:/Program Files/Daz 3D and open it the first thing listed should be Content Management Service. Open that, inside you should have a folder named Uninstallers open it. Run that Uninstaller. After it runs if the folder databases is left behind delete it as well.

Unfortunately there’s nothing about Content Management Service, nothing in the Uninstallers either….

Okay. I see what the trouble might be. We need to fix all this.
Step 1: Uninstall DS4.5 after the Uninstall go back to C:Programs Files and DELETE the DAZ 3D folder.
We want a clean start. Nothing left. Delete the Content folder from Documents also after the uninstall.
Once your system is clean REBOOT and then come back and tell me. Do not install anything until you talk to me first.

Never having uninstalled before there’s 3 things I’m still stuck on. First I’ve found a remove Daz Content Management Service.exe in the Programme File as in the attached pic. Second I’ve no idea how to uninstall DS4.5 as the two uninstallers in Docs and Settings are empty as indicated by the 2 lines in the previous pic. And third I’ve also found a Genesis uninstaller also as per the attached pic which I’ve done but no idea if it was uninstalled or not.

The one that says Remove DAZContent Management services.exe Run it. Do not bother with the Genesis one. In My Documents you have a DAZ 3D folder. Just Delete that folder. Now go back to your Control Panel and Run ADD/Remove Programs in it you should have DAZ Studio 4.5 (32bit) listed Select that and then click the Remove or Uninstall button. Once you have run the Uninstall come back and tell me.

Unable to remove the DAZContent Management Services so nothing done yet. Nothing in the bottom Uninstaller either…..

Good Morning Marcus, That’s very odd it should be unless you have ran the 64bit installer. I will think about this and get back to you later.
I’m a Kidney Dialysis patent, I’ve just got home from my treatment and I will need a few hours to recover. I will think of this problem and hope we can get this all fixed for you before the day is over for both of us.

Jaderail - just a small point, but the uninstaller says it is 0KB on the image, so something went wrong with it?

Yup, bogus uninstaller.  You’re going to have to go back to deleting things manually.

Thanks. The bogus uninstaller deleted ok, any particular order for deleting everything else ? Incidentally there’s no Daz products in Add/ Remove Programmes….

Sorry I was not back quicker but I feel almost human now. Thanks for catching that issue guys.

Marcus could I get a screen shot of Add/Remove with the D’s listed before we go any farther please?
If installed files are not listing in your Add/Remove you might have bigger issues with your system than just not being able to get DS to work properly. Even programs without uninstallers should list in that section. It’s a feature of XP and above.

Okay, that helps much. Have you Uninstalled the last Daz Studio you had on the system? Maybe with a uninstaller?

If you have not will Daz Studio still boot and run but is all messed up?

I haven’t removed any Daz Studios yet as there’s no installers left as I mentioned earlier. It’s a real mix up in there as there’s one Daz Studio in My Documents and a second one in Programmes (!) as well as the correct usual one. However both Studios are faulty being the same ones (seen in the pic in my very first post in this thread) in the empty “My Content” box though mysteriously showing elsewhere.

Hope you can follow this…
