DSON Importer for Poser Pro 11

I need some help as I cannot get the DSON Importer for Poser Pro 11 (64bit) installed through the DAZ Install Manager.

I have set the Poser installation path on the DIM correctly but keep getting an installation fail with the following error:

"Install Manager cannot find a required path. The package for "DSON Importer for Poser (Win 64-bit)" requires that the installed path for "Poser Pro 2014, Pro 2012 (64-bit)" be defined. Make sure that a path for this application is present on the "Applications" page of the "Settings" dialog, then try again."

I have check the poser install paths multiple times to be correct.

What else can I do.

My Poser version is 11.1.0.34764

  • Lie - edit the application details in DIM for Poser Pro 11 to be Poser Pro 2014.

    Thanks Richard! I couldn't figure it out with my Poser 11 installation. Installed and works good now!

  • I tried calling Poser 11 directory Poser Pro 2014 and it didn't work, how exactly should I be lying?

    I tried calling Poser 11 directory Poser Pro 2014 and it didn't work, how exactly should I be lying?

    Did you change the diectory name or select Poser Pro 2014 as the application name when setting the application details in Install Manager? It's the latter that was meant.

    I am not sure where to change the directory name, I thought that I did go for PP2014, I'll check it again.  Thanks for your time and trouble!

  • Ok, I had to go into another part of the settings and it worked!  Thank you very much!

    FINALLY got the DSON script to install to the proper Poser 11 directory thanks to these discussions! Now when I go to load a Gen 2/3 figure, no figure in preview/document window, but shows up in hiearchy??? Could this have something to do with where the content originates? Should I move the Daz3D Library items into my Poser runtime?

  • That usually means the DSON Core files are either not installed or are are not in a Poser library folder

  • Thanks Richard. I'm deep-diving into the DSON User Guide and granted it's mainly for Windows, I'm follwing the directions regarding the Gen 2/3 Essentials and their corresponding Runtime locations which I'm placing into my main Poser 11 Runtime directory. My question: do I need to also move/copy the corresponding "data" and "People" folders?

  • The Data folder needs to be in a folder set as a library folder in Poser. Note that Genesis 3 (and 8) are not supported in Poser and don't come with PoserCF files; there are utilities to help you get a slightly downgraded version of the figures into Poser.

  • I'm having the same trouble with DIM and maybe I just have the installation folders setup wrong.  I also have a Poser Pro 11 on a Mac (Mojave) and here's a snapshot of my installation folders in DIM.  Have I got it all wrong, or what?

  • replied to your other post.

  • Thanks Richard!   I finally got DSON to install into my Poser Pro 11.  Now, since I'm having the same problems OnceUponaStage had, I'll work on moving some files around.  *Sigh!*

    You probably need to go to DIM and install the Poser CF files for your DSON products. You would have had no reason to do that when you initially installed it in DS.
