This seems to be the appropriate board for this? I hope so...

After installing Win 7 and rebuilding my hard drive with all of my apps, I decided to upgrade to Poser Pro 2010. This meant installing my old version first, then buying the upgrade, etc. Once I had done that, I began to reinstall all of my Poser content.

Everything went smoothly, until I tried to install the DAZ model, TheGirl 4. During the installation process, you are asked if you're installing for DAZ or Poser. I selected Poser. You are then asked to provide the path to the folder containing the Poser Pro executable file. For me, that is: "C:\Program File\Smith Micro\Poser Pro 2010." This is the path that I browsed to. However, when I click the "Next" button to begin the installation, I receive an error message telling me that I must select the folder that contains the Poser executable file.

I've tried this four times, being quite careful to make sure that I'm directing the installation to the proper folder. I get the same error message each time.

Has anyone ever had anything like this happen? I had no problems with my earlier version of Poser.

Thanks for your reply, Martel. I did try this, actually, and the installation runs, but Poser is unable to open the content. This is most perplexing, because before I upgraded to Windows 7, I never had one bit of problem installing content for Poser, whether it was originally a DAZ product, or a Poser product. I am beginning to think that this might just be a Win 7 issue.

It's not a major deal, really. I like the content (The Girl), but it is not something I rely on heavily. It would be nice if I could figure this out, though. I hate unresolved issues...

I am inclined to agree about the Windows 7.
It has to be resolved.

I would start a new incident?

Yes, I think you're probably correct. I seldom utilize corporate support. I can usually find the answers I need in places like this. Corporate support can take forever... <_<
