Thank you! This saved so much time! I kept wracking my brain about how I was going to get Michael and his Morphs++ to install, but this did the trick! :worship:

This is a great help, and I have a question. I just picked up PP10 so I'm researching everything I can before I start reinstalling my large collection of stuff.  My question is does the Power Loader work in Poser or should I not bother installing that for V/M4?  Thanks so much!

Since Victoria 4 is a bit of an older figure, it's a little tougher to find amidst DAZ's new products. :D

Thanks for your reply. I really appreciate it.

I checked your link. It has only Victoria Figure. No Other figures included such as Hiro, Michael,kid...etc.

Is it possible you can share old version if you still have it?

Thank you

Hi! This came up as I am fighting to upload V4 to Poser 9 (New versions are out, this stuff was on sale real cheap!).

NOTHING worked.
But there is a button in Poser, upper RH side of a File with a Plus sign. It ADDS folders to your library.
ADD the RUNTIME folder where V4 was placed.

Boom! Problem solved.
Hope this helps!

Thanks so much, I stopped using Poser when P4 was still top of the food chain. :o All this new stuff is just rather... intimidating.

If you've purchased and installed Victoria 4.2 from DAZ3D ([link]) then you should be able to find Victoria 4.2 in the Figures area of your Poser library, in a folder called DAZ People. :D

This didn't work for me.
The installer went through with this trick, I initialize V4 base, but there is no DAZ People entry in Figures.
:(

Ok, I know that these precise tactics may not work for everyone, but the absence of a DAZ Figures entry under Figures (or Character) is truly puzzling. Maybe try double-checking to make sure you're looking in the place where you installed V4? That's my first mistake these days -- installing it to one Runtime and then checking a different one!

I finally manage to install the thing, but I had to install it elsewhere, and add the directory containing the V4 runtime as an external library. No way it worked for me installing V4 in the main "Poser Pro 2010" directory.

Anyway, I think it is better this way, to have things separated.

Thanks!

Actually, I just downloaded the V4 basic, and there was no problem installing V4, even after I removed the fake poser.exe. SO it is no needed anymore.
However, after installing and initializing it, V4 simply does not appear inside Poser Pro 2010.
:( :( :(

This may sound like a silly question but did you guys link your folder in poser using the add folder button in Poser Library? I didn't use a fake or anything just linked my old Daz 3D folder and so far no problems.

I have Win 7 and Poser Pro 2010. I've been trying this for over 3 days and the tech support for DAZ has no clue.

I run the DAZ setup.exe file to install and I've tried installing in the folder where Poser.exe is... no luck. I renamed my PoserPro.exe file to Poser.exe and no luck. I've also tried creating a folder outside of "Program Files" where I made a fake poser.exe file no luck (I read that it may work if you try this outside of Program Files).

I've tried everything. Please help! Grrr.

You remind me that I REALLY need to update this tutorial! Egads!

The first thing I recommend is going into a regular old text editor like Notepad and saving a blank file called poser.exe in the place that you want to install the files. That "fake" has worked for me many times. You -will- need to completely exit out of the installer and restart it again before it will recognize that the file is there, though. Once the installer says "no!" it is stuck there.

Are you getting any specific error message? Or do you have a screen capture that shows the problem?

I tried that both outside of the program files folder and within. I get the same error that the required file was not found for installation and that the program installation will abort.

NightsongWS Featured By Owner May 26, 2011   Digital Artist
Ok, next question!! Which exact file are you trying to install? DAZ installers are notoriously finiky about the order you install things. For instance, you can't install Morphs++ or Elite Body Shapes until the base V4 or M4 file has already been installed to that very same runtime folder. None of the add-on figures like Steph 4 or the Freak 4 can be installed until the base V4/M4 figure has been installed to that very same runtime either.

And, I'm very sorry for all the questions, especially since it is probably just running down the list of the same things you've already tried. This would be a lot easier if I could stand next to you and watch what is happening! :hug: We can figure this out, though!!

I have the same OS and Poser as 384sprites, and I'm experiencing the same problem. I've created the poser.exe in the Downloads folder, and in the main install. I've tried to install file name 7877_1_dpc_M4Base 1st. (I assume this is the base for michael 4) But it keeps giving the exact error that you have posted in your tutorial above.

Strange thing tho, V4 installed to the downloads directory without any hickups :P
