Installing PostgreSQL for DAZ Studio and Smart Content Issues

Installing PostgreSQL for DAZ Studio 4.6.3.50

Open DAZ Studio

Export User Data
To do this, right click on the Content Library pane, choose Content DB Maintenance, tick Export User Data, click Accept.

Close DAZ Studio

Open Install Manager

Download and install the version of PostGreSQL appropriate for your OS 

Download and install the Conversion product "PostgreSQL CMS From Valentina CMS Conversion". (If it takes less than a couple of seconds it didn't work, likely due to a corrupt Valentina Database.)

You are done! You should now be able to use DAZ Studio as you have in the past. 

 

If your Database was corrupt so the Conversion did not work correctly, and you open DAZ Studio and your smart content pane is not properly set up after following the above steps.  

Reset the Database
To do this, right click on the Content Library pane, choose Content DB Maintenance, tick Reset Database, click Accept.

Reimport Metadata with the box checked that userdata overwrites product data.
To do this, right click on the Content Library pane, choose Content DB Maintenance, tick Re-Import Metadata, click Accept. Tick User Data and All Products and click Accept.

This article can also instruct you on how to re-import metadata:
