    replicative bug

    when downloading a product the software crashes and then makes the computer's SSD disappear for use from windows. A reboot is required... try again and same

    only happened since this latest update of DiM

    Windows11 Pro RTM 64bit

    During downloading or installing? Was it content or an application?

    What is the Win 11 version number?

    but I can't .... hmmm

    If you right-click that message, there is an option to copy the link. Select that, then paste it in the URL bar. It should now download.

    5th October, only a few weeks away.

    Been running XI since June with no problems up to this release of DiM
    Windows 11 Insider Preview Build 22000.184 released to the Beta Channel and commercial PCs in the Release Preview Channel.

    trying to download content which is the first purchase I'd made since the DiM update. 

    22000.184

    It doesn't bother me as I'll just download the zips and do a manual install. just thought I'd pass it on for others who may get the error after 5th October when they upgrade.

    I am not really convinced. It has never been a good idea to go with an x.0 version an anything...

    was a faulty sata cable cool

    though Edge still doesn't allow the download so used another browser. smiley

    Using latest DIM, finally setup my new 2nd PC. Cloned hard-drive with all the CMS, manifests & product DL's etc.  Good.
    DAZ things are all good from initial tests.
    Got all the custom categorization imported.
    So that's all good.

    But there still is one BAD with Custom Categories on import. Categories are not auto-imported despite being in proper support subfolder.  Was with Reset or New. (had both - one on old PC and now this one).
    Very grateful you have categories. 
    But all the categories are locked after Categories Import.
    Locked means "Rename" feature is unavailable.

    Can get rename back by duplicating categories and then moving back as needed.
    Issue is when you own alot of DAZ content (ie. supported the store), you can have piles and piles of categories,
    like I happen to have, that's a pile of work.  Is a simple unlock feature possible?

    Question: Is there a way around this? or can you add to issues as this thread is semi-official (being not DIM - not quite as related)? or have to submit ticket (with probably long turn around)?

    Have seem this issue pop up once before with 2 users posting on these forums, so it's not an isolated issue.
    Thanks.

    A ticket needs to be filed otherwise the problem can't get looked at and fixed if necessary. They don't follow the forums.

    Thanks for reply.  Will "copy & paste" the above to a ticket.  Good to know all forum threads are not officially followed, even sorta or what seems like quasi-official threads like this one.

    Edit: Ticket is submitted.

    Been like that for at least 4 years, when I last tried it. Can't edit my own categories after re-importing metadata on new computer

    I am still using windows 10 64bit and the DIM 14.0.8.0 was working for awhile... suddenly yesterday when I decided to download some of my products... it failed. A few succeeded and a few looked as though it was starting to download then failed. Ugh... what should I do? I have already sent in my ticket, but takes time for them to get back to me... awfully long too. Pls anyone advise? I even got rid of my firewall to test it - to no avail. I have attached the Log Report of the error.

    It's not just you, everyone is affected. There are dozens of threads from users complaining of unavailable downloads. It's a server problem, and it will be corrected when it is corrected. Nothing wrong with DIM.

    Thanks for link and reply.

    That thread date is before I was here, and issue workaround this time was easy enough I didn't have to search.  Good to know though you posted as well back in 2017 (and last june 2018).

    DAZ has so many Many moving parts, and features to add/improve etc, and probably categories is less used from what I read here, so probably it is on a lesser list to deal with.  Keep eyes peeled in changelog, for maybe.   They did fix mouse cursor disappearing in 4.15.1.72 beta, which was more important, and new skin weights in changelog looks interesting too ie.  "Added support for blended general weight (LBS/DQS) mesh skinning".  (or, i think linear and quaternion blend is new as a skin binding - haven't looked at that yet in more depth yet).

    Its always been my pet peeve with these product update that DIM doesn't say what is being updated. There is an update for Ruo XI Collection. but I have no idea what was updated. Are we ever going to get the updated info tab or popup? 
    https://www.daz3d.com/ruo-xi-collection-for-genesis-8-females

    Adding a field or link access to the Resolved Issue posted on the product info page in Document Center would be a great start.

    Clicking on the little "I" in the circle will open the page in the documentation center. If there is no mention of an update it tends to mean it was "just" a metadata update.

    If you put aside a copy of the previous version, you can always check to see what has changed after you download the update without losing the current version. Open the package in a file utility and sort by date to see which files have changed, and compare with the previous version. In DIM, you can view "Installed Files" and "Package Files", and those lists can be copied (CTRL-A CTRL-C) and compared in, say, notepad++ to see if any files have been added or removed. Could get a bit tedious, but the ReadMe's have been adding revision comments as of late (maybe 2, 3 months). I still check to make sure, anyway.

    It is suggested that you try Beyond Compare from http://www.scootersoftware.com/ on the zips.

    Thanks, that's kind of what I have been doing, but to be greedy I was hoping for a field I could use when offline.

    Is anyone else opening up Install Manager and it's not doing anything? Saying 0 files to download, 0 files installed? I used it fine early last night then around 9'ish EST it has been doing this. I've restarted and nothing. It immediately switches to Not Responding.

     I grab a copy of the store page, including full size images of the promo thumbs, create and save a spreadsheet of the invoice, and export the readme page to pdf for every purchase. I'll re-grab the readme on updated products if there is an indication of what changed. I was on dial-up internet until November of 2019, doing my downloads at a wifi site. And yes, now that you ask, I am OCD. wink

     Check the log to see if there's any indication of a problem there. As near as I can determine the startup sequence after you click 'Start' is to process your download directory and installed file manifest - and there's no indication of activity for this phase - followed by walking your product library to see what is new or changed. This doesn't start until the lst of ready to install and installed files has been populated and shows the black progress bar while this is going on. I don't know if DIM logs on to your account up front or if it waits until after your local files are processed.

    If it logs in up front it should time out eventually AND give an error message. So it sounds like DIM is having an issue processing your local files.
