Surprisingly this all worked first time for me. I installed D|S 18.104.22.168 then Genesis Starter Essentials 1.6 (to the DAZ Content Library) then the DSON Importer and companion files. I’m using PP 2012 SR3 64 Bit on Windows 7. I already had MS Visual C++ 2010 installed, so had the runtimes mentioned in a previous post.
Genesis imports fine into PP 2012 and renders. Well done, DAZ. I’m speechless.
Well ... almost.
Now, a question. Although it wasn’t my intention to start re-downloading countless terrabytes of updated content from my unsearchable previous orders list, I did try a reset on Michael 5. Could somebody explain what the difference is between the Legacy and DSON Core files (e.g: “Michael 5 - Legacy - PC” and “Michael 5 - DSON Core - PC”).
Do I have to install both?
Do they both go to the DAZ Studio Content Library?
I would have expected just an updated Michael 5 installer plus the companion file (Michael 5 - Poser Companion - PC), but this has thrown me and I have no intention of installing any of these files into my perfectly working DAZ Studio configuration until I know what they are and what they will do.
