Just want to add my thanks, Kendall.  This is right up there with Runtime Repair in the “utilities I can’t live without’ list.

So have DAZ fix the issue with old files be download and able to run the installer or do we still need to run the utility the customer wrote?

Thanks

Thank you so very much. I thought I would never be able to use these files until I found this Thread and your Utility. It works like a charm. Files are fixed and the installers run without a problem. You are very generous with your time. Thank you and shame on DAZ to rely on their members and customers to supply the fixes for their plunders. I will keep this utility in a very safe place.

Warm regards from Mexico.

I guess when I run this I put the bad installer as the input, but what do I put as the output?

It is the “fixed” installer name.  The name cannot currently exist.

I can’t seem to get this to work for 14575_ClassicBikini3_1.0_gc.  It creates the new file, but that file still won’t run.  Anybody had any luck with that one?

I don’t have this (yet).  Could you pull the archive into notepad or wordpad and PM me the last little bit of the file (about 500 bytes or so)?

I’ve had no joy on this either.  I’ve tried both 64 bit and 32 bit utilities on 14575_ClassicBikini3_1.0_gc.  The resulting file size appeared to be unchanged, and none of the versions I have of this file execute including the fixed versions.  The other three installer files for Classic Bikini did seem to work for me without having to run the tool.

As of 28-Jun-2012 my utility no longer works on the downloads.  If anyone needs me to update the utility, please PM me and I will.  Otherwise, the utility will only work with files downloaded prior to 28-Jun.

As of 6/25, the Daz exe files I have downloaded no longer have the web server error at the end. If anybody is still getting corrupted downloads, it is likely a different problem. I had one download on 6/25 that would not install (br_sc005_AllContent.exe for Bryce), but downloading it again fixed the problem. Again, I see no more “0AFatal error…” stuff at the end of the files using a hex editor. A great utility, Kendall, but hopefully, its shelf life has officially expired. LOL

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

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.


Edit: I reset two old items that had installers that would have shown a problem, but the content has been converted to a zip file. In this case, a good thing is a bad thing, because we can’t isolate a problem. downer
