    Thanks!

  • where do templates go?

    Templates can go anywhere you want as they are not directly used by Studio.  I like to keep them in the texture folder of the product they are for.

    How do I install Daz Studio and my laarge amount of content on my 'D' drive, instead of my 'C' drive? My C drive is too small, but my D drive is big, 1TB. (Windows 10)

    How are you installing? In Install manager, you should be able to select the apth for DIM itself then open its preferences (click the gear icon at top-right) and in the installation tab, at the top, set the paths for 64 and 32 bit software to D:/Program Files and D:/Program Files (x86) respectively - or whatever folders you want to use). In the same tab click the + button at the bottom to add a new content directory, give it a name, and use the ... button to select the folder you want to use, then select that destination by name in the Current drop-down box.

    In Daz Studio, once you have that installed, click go to Edit>Preferences>Content tab>Content Directory Manager, highlight each folder in the current selection in trn and use the Edit button to change the path to the D: folder.

    Before you isntall any more software you should probably tell Windows to use D: as your documents folder, by finding the folder in C:/Users/YOU/, right-clicking on it, selecting Properties, going to the Location tab, and clicking the Move button - if you do that for the various content folders most future installs will default to that location for saving (as DS would if you did it before your first installation).

    It will not let you stop installing, it just goes automaticaly to my to solid state c drive. 5 tb of secondary drive space but it just assumes i want to install it on my  120 gb drive.

    The first time you run it it just goes automatically and will not let you change the path because its downloading, if you try to stop the downloads they just restart automatically,  It's a mess. I suppos e I could go unplug my modem but thats just another inconvieince.

  • You may need to try a direct download of the Install Manager stand-alone installer from your account, then run that.

    DAZ 4.10 stalls at "Installing Content Management Service".  It does install content, but get stuck at this point EVERY time.  The 32 bit does the same.  Upon installation I choose to install the program on my E: drive and the content on my J: drive.  The previous versions installed perfectly fine with this setup.  DAZ 4.10 refuse to install successfully.  I've tried to install from the website via DIM.  Both via website and manual installation fails.  What should I do?

    custom content path

  • What security software are you using?

  • help me please...

    Install Manager cannot find a required path. The package for "Photoshop 3D Bridge for DAZ Studio 4.10+ (Win 64-bit)" requires that the installed path for "Photoshop CC, CS6, CS5, CS4 (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. 

    what i do???

    The same message appeared to me.

    Here is what I've done. But please, take my input with a grain of salt —I'm unable to launch DAZ Studio and I don't know if any of this caused the bug

    There isn't a bug - if you have a supportted Photoshop version installed you need to tell Install Manager which it is, and where, before you can install the Photoshop plug-in - as you show in your screenshots.
