If you bought DAZ products in ZIP format (for PC) as I did, be aware they HAVE NO EXTENSION on them. But don’t panic, just RENAME and: add a “.zip” to the end of the file,
THEN unzip and you may AGAIN have a file with NO extension! Again, don’t panic, just add another “.zip” to the file and it will NOW unzip properly!!
I had found this once before, and my friend said she found this on one of her items today too. Good thing she reminded me!
What a royal mess, especially for me, being dyslexic, to have all these duplicate file names, to have to keep adding the extension, unzipping, repeat, etc… and finally get the poser files into my own temp Poser runtime, so I can then sort out the contents. (remove any ds files) before the lot goes into my actual poser.
I just hope this helps others that may be new to this format that some of the products are still in (I guess from the short lived conversion to zip from exe time at DAZ). Thank goodness they STOPPED this conversion, or all the products would be this messy. :(
I am rarely here, I only came for the big sale, to get the items I truly needed for my POSER runtime…and get Howie’s great Carrara scene sets.
PS that pdf file in our downloads named “how to use zip files” has NOTHING to do with this problem, I checked.
