Installation problems with various V4 addons
Hi, first post here. Please feel free to point me to a thread that has the answers to the questions I'm putting forth or to merge this with such a thread if necessary. In short, I need help with proper installation of various additions (clothing sets, characters, hair, etc.) for Victoria 4.2.
I got Daz Studio 4.5 from this weekend as well as various items including Victoria 4.2, clothing sets for same and other items. I'm not sure, however, that I've properly installed them. Let me explain - there seem to be two or three issues here, possibly interrelated.
1) Most of the items I've gotten are at least a couple of years old (dating from 2007 to 2010) and use BitRock Installer to install. I seem to end up having to install these items twice because, on the first go-round, at completion of installation the Program Compatibilty Assistant (I have Windows 7 64-bit) pops up and tells me the program might not have installed correctly and suggests doing it over again with recommended settings. I then go back and do it again as suggested, and on the second try, the item seems to install correctly. However...!
2) I'm not sure at all that I've installed the items in the right directory. There are two directories that Daz Studio uses to store content, from what I can tell:
c:/Users/User/Documents/Daz 3D/Studio/My Library
Virtually all the older items I've been installing default to the first directory, but I am wondering if maybe I should have used the second directory instead? I'm really not sure about this because when I go to Content Library (on the right-hand side of the program interface, as you know) and tell the program where to find those items, most of them show up properly).
3) A third problem I seem to be having is that I'm not sure where to find the basic Victoria 4/4.2 female figure on my system to load it into Daz Studio. This creates problems for me when experimenting with placing clothing items on the figure to get practice - the basic Genesis female figure that comes with Daz Studio 4.5 won't necessarily work with items intended for Victoria 4.2, and as I said, I can't find the base Victoria 4 figures in the Content Library to load for experimentation/practice.
TL:DR - the above issues are establishing some significant roadblocks to me in learning how to use Daz Studio and Victoria 4.2, and I'd be very glad of any help you guys could give me. As I said, this is my first post here, and I am fairly sure at least one of the above questions has already been answered, so please do point me to any threads that have those answers. :)
