So I’ve been out of the game for about six months or so, and I just found out that DS had advanced to 4.5, and I came by to upgrade from 4.0. I went to the Daz store, signed in, and got myself hooked up with a download for the 4.5 upgrade and it’s accessories.
All the small stuff like the plugins and the instruction PDFs downloaded fine, but when I got the the two core files, the DS 4.5 exe and the Genesis starter pack exe, the download hangs on start for a few minutes, then cancels. In Crome it just dies, in Firefox it gives me a pop-up error saying that the source file can’t be read. To clarify, the download proper never starts, the browser just tries to connect to the download server and can’t.
I know it’s not my connection, because I can download all kinds of other stuff large and small all over other parts of the ‘net, and I can download some other items on the Daz store. To my admittedly very limited networking knowledge, It looks like there’s a certain server on the Daz site that’s the problem.
Aside from the inability to download, this is problematic because every time I try to download and fail, the Daz store counts it as a successful DL and subtracts it from my available DLs number. I know I can get that reset, but IIRC there’s a limit to the total number of tries I can make before Daz calls shenanigans on me for downloading 10 copies (or however many it takes to raise a red flag), when in reality I haven’t even partially downloaded a single one.
Has anyone else had any similar problems recently?
