...


Tonight, all of the downloads I received had a smaller, but different error at the end.  Hopefully, this is a transitory thing.


Kendall

The new downloads I have all have a hex 0A” at the end, but nothing else. I’ll try resetting an old generation installer and downloading.

This is at the end of all of the files downloaded this afternoon:

Good grief! I didn’t get that. Well, the error still starts with “0AFatal error: ” (0A 46 61 74 61 6C 20 65 72 72 6F 72 3A 20). Looks like that ray of hope was premature. Looks like your magic is still needed.

I’m hoping that won’t be the case.  I’ll hold off on an update unless someone needs it.  Hopefully, DAZ will get it fixed quickly.  At least there’s only 1 error this time.

I am going to go ahead and unsticky this thread as there is a link to it in this thread here: http://www.daz3d.com/forums/viewthread/115/ as well so everyone can easily get to it. Just wanted to let you all know so you didn’t wonder how to find it or where the sticky went smile


PS TY Kendall for this utility and for helping with this issue! smile Though I think I told you that before but it never hurts to say it yet again smile

Considering that the utility is no longer needed, unsticky-ing it is fine by me.


Thanks

You said the utility is no longer needed; so this means all the downloads are fixed now?

Not completely.  The error changed on 6/28 and the utility no longer strips it, but no one has contacted me about updating the utility.  So, I assume that since no one is having issues worth asking for a fix for, the utility must no longer serve a purpose.

It might not be a lack of interest that you haven’t had requests.  For example, I hadn’t actually tried your utility yet only because I didn’t need to use my purchases immediately and figured I could just wait a bit until DAZ gets the issue resolved, then download them then.  However I’m starting to wonder how long this will take (days? months? soons?)  If this isn’t fixed this month either, I’d give your utility a try.

I don’t intend to remove the utility from my site for quite some time, so for those files downloaded prior to 6/28 it’ll probably continue to fix the problem.  For files downloaded after that date until the complete fix, I’ll have to write an update if I get any interest.

OK Folks!


I have updated the Mac version of the download utility.  Windows will come a little later this evening (I hope).


By popular demand, this new version appends “-fixed” to the archive name before the extension.


EDIT:  WIN32 and 64 versions uploaded.

I have downloaded your utility (thank you) but I don’t quite understand how to use it.  What do I put in the Input File and Output File?  Yes, I’m pretty hopeless…

If you’re using Windows make sure that you download the archive named newFixDaz.zip


Once you extract the version you want (32 or 64 bit), run it.  Click on “Browse” next to the input area and select the downloaded installer that is having problems.  The utility will automatically fill in the output.  Click on “Go”. If the error is one of the supported errors that can be fixed you will see “Done.”  You should now have a version of the installer in the same location as the original with a “-fixed” in the name.  If you see any other message, then you have a different problem and will probably need to “reset” and “redownload” the installer.

I tried running FixDaz32.exe on the re-downloaded IM00004019_daedalus-sky-mercenary-for-m3.zip, but get the message “No error found in a reasonable space.  Assuming no problems.”  I’m guessing this .zip is corrupted in a different way and not fixable by this utility?

Extract All on the .zip in Windows XP gives me “Unexpected end of file.”, and in Windows 7 it gives me “An unexpected error is keeping you from copying the file. If you continue to receive this error, you can use the error code to search for help with this problem.  Error 0x80004005: Unspecified error

Your download most likely got cropped.  My utility can’t help with that grin
