Why can't I select items in the viewport in DAZ Studio?

The first thing to do is make sure you have a tool active that will let you select items - the Spot render tool won't, and tools like Translate and Rotate will not show a manipulation gadget on some parts (you can't translate Victoria's forearm away from her body, for example).  

If that isn't the problem then it is most likely a video card or driver issue - if Help>About your video card... lists the OpenGL provider as Microsoft (second line of the summary) then updating to the current driver from the manufacturer of your video card may be all that's needed.  Unfortunately some cards simply won't do the job due to limited OpenGL support and then you will have to make do with selecting items in the Scene palette and adjusting them in the Parameters palette.
