I reset my V5 Pro Bundle on Sept 29.  Will that have the necessary DSON Files or have they been changed since then? 
Thanks.

They have been changed since then grin. You will have to reset it to see the DSON and Poser Companion files. Hope this helps a little.

Yep it did.  Thanks.  I’ll need to open up a ticket cuz they are still in my downloads from the 29th and I don’t think I can reset them again… 

Thanks!

Try downloading one file first. I had that a few months back when DS4 came with an update while I still had the older one in my available downloads. So I downloaded it and surprisingly… it was the new version. cool smile

Love, Jeanne

You’re Welcome grin. I think I spent all day yesterday resetting all my Genesis Content…lol…I just wish they would clear out some of the old downloads after you get done dl’ing stuff grin. I did try the Poser Import last night and wow it came through beautifully grin.

Now all I gotta do is learn Poser..lol.

Couple of interesting findsː

1)  After I uninstall the importer, PP12 still looks for it on startup and displays a no-such-module error.

2)  My Python shell says thisː

Welcome to the Poser Python Shell.
Python 2.7.1 (r271ː86832, Oct 10 2012, 10ː53ː31)
[MSC v.1500 64 bit (AMD64)] on win32

Why “on win32”?  My system is 64-bit.

Should I start a new thread for this issue?  I’m really eager to get this workingǃ

I’ve gone bog-eyed reading through all these posts for the answer I’m looking for smile I’d be interested to know if there any Poser 9 users here that are able to use the DSON importer without the library totally freezing after the Genesis figure imports with DSON?

Don’t know if this will help anyone - I was trying to figure out how to know which items have been updated.

This is a list in alphabetical order of the 96 items showing right now….

Thanks,

The list does help, since the itemized order history is only in alphabetical order.

If you cannot change library categories (from Figures to Pose, Expressions, Hair, Props, Light, Camera, etc.), some of us are able to get around the problem by launching the Library outside the Poser application.

Edit / General Preferences / select the Library tab and change Launch Behavior from Embedded to External. 

Then restart Poser.

DAZ is working on a fix.

Ello!

I got a lot of the errors mentioned in this thread, but have since worked through them all. 

I’ve got a new one now: when I try to load one of the Genesis figures, I get the following error message: ‘The DSON importer requires a writable runtime folder that is outside of Program Files.  Add a writable runtime folder to the library and try again.’

Poser Pro 2012, SR3
64 bit DSON importer (showing up fine in the scripts menu, no error messages)
Genesis Content installed into main Poser Pro 2012 Runtime library and visible in Library pane

Any ideas on this one?

Cheers! :D

It sounds like it thinks that your main Runtime folder is under Program Files or some other location that is protected by Windows (7, Vista).

You could try and change the “Writable Runtime Folder” under Scripts then DSON Support then Importer Preferences and see if that helps?

Here’s my test renders. The preview render has cartoon outlining even though I selected “texture shaded” for the preview. The other picture is a default render (two steps up from draft with sub-surface scattering).

Thanks for the advice.  Unfortunately, it’s not worked. :( 

I added the appropriate runtime folder to the Importer preferences but it still displayed the message on trying to load the genesis figures.  I also tried editing the permissions for the folder, and also then running Poser as Administrator - so far no dice. 

Any other suggestions? smile

Cheers,
