Okay, I think I can help you some.

The one in Programs is the Program itself. The one that Runs and lets you do 3D art with it.
The one in My Documents is what is called the CONTENT folder. That is the one the Program looks in to find all your Content.
It is also the one you should always put your content into. If your content is not in that one and set up correct DS will have errors.
You should only have One of both. If you have three we will need to get rid of all three to have a CLEAN place to start with.

It looks to me like none of the DAZ stuff is installed at this time. If you can post a shot of just the three different ones you have(three different shot will be fine). You do not need to open them I just wish to see them.

Thanks for the explanation makes it all a little clearer now that I’ve got some idea of what’s going on.

Attached the original 3 Runtimes in “My Documents” and I’m not sure two of what in Programme Files !

OKAY. This is what we want to do…

Step 1. The DAZ 3D FOLDER in My Documents. Delete it. We want it and everything in it to go away. Poof. Nothing!!
Step 2. The Daz3d FOLDER in Programmes . Delete it. POOF! Gone, we want it to go away. Nothing left.
Step 3. The DAZ 3D FOLDER in Programmes. Delete it. Also GONE! Poof nothing left. All three GONE! Nothing left at ALL!!
Step 4. Shut Down the Computer. Do a FULL shut down. Do not do a ReStart. We want a Shut Down. Wait 1 minute then Start the Computer.
Step 5. Check that ALL three Folders are 100% gone. Look for them. Are they GONE? Come back and Tell me.

Thanks. Step 1 deleted but found a Content Management Server in Daz3d which sounded important.

Or carry on deleting ?

DELETE it ALL. When we get to installing, the one we need will be put back and it should work. Which should fix part of the trouble.

First emptied the recycling bin. Then shut down, not a Restart, for 5 minutes. All 3 Daz files now completely gone.

Okay. Here we go One step at a time.

Step 1. First we need these two FILES for you. You have a 32bit XP system so it must be the 32Bit DS file that get’s installed.
..............If you do not have these two files please go to your Accounts and then to the part My Itemized Order History. Search it
..............and do a RESET on Daz Studio 4.5Pro so you get NEW files to download and we know they are the New Files.
..............Then go to My Downloadable Products and then Download the new files.

Step 2. It is now time to RUN the Daz Studio 4.5 Install file. When it opens you will be asked to ACCEPT the terms twice. Do that.
..............Now look at the image BELOW! Your Screen SHOULD be this!! DO NOT CHECK THAT BOX!! Click the NEXT icon ONLY!!
..............You will come to the next part after this.

Step 3. This is the DEFAULT Daz Studio 4.5 Install!! It should be VERY close to This!! If it is DIFFERENT just leave it ALONE!
..............Do not change one thing NOTHING. Just click NEXT!

..............Write DOWN BOTH OF THESE PATHS in the boxes.
......... The BOTTOM one is YOUR content Path YOU NEED it For ALL content INSTALLS!

Step 4. NOW WAIT. You are on a XP 32bit system the install WILL take a very LONG TIME. Maybe Even as much as an HOUR or more.
..............It WILL look like nothing is happening for LONG periods, especially close to the end. If you CANCEL at
..............any TIME you will NOT get a FULL install.
..............Just WAIT. It will END when it is DONE!! Then you CLICK FINISH!!

Step 5. Now Run the Genesis Starter Essentials Installer! Agree to the parts when ASKED! Now Here is the Important PART.
..............DO NOT CHANGE ANYTHING!! Do NOT pick Custom just tell it NEXT!!
..............See the Image Below. The PATHS MUST MATCH the one in Image #3. The TOP Part Is the Content PATH. If they do not
..............MATCH you will need to CANCEL and Tell ME what is different.

..............IF they Match then Tell it NEXT and WAIT!!. TOUCH NOTHING until it Finishes!!

That SHOULD get you UP and Running. I would ReBOOT the PC and THEN try to Run Daz Studio. You should have the stating content installed and working Now.

IF you do TELL me and we can get anything else installed into content because its all working now.

Thanks a lot some of it I never knew !!

However thought I’d just do a quick Search, entered Daz 3D, which someone advised me always to do ages ago and found this little lot….
