How to install the Install Manager and Daz Studio

The first thing you will want to do is install the Daz Install Manager (DIM). This will simplify the entire process, including installing new content in the future. You can download that here:

NOTE: Mac Users, if you receive an error during download and install "identity of the developer can not be confirmed" You will need to go into your security settings and set your Mac to accept all applications.

Once you have installed Daz Install Manager, you will want to enter your account information (email and password). Once you have logged in, go to the Ready to Download tab.  

- Locate "Daz Studio 4.10." Check the box next to it. Please make sure "Install after Download" is selected at the bottom of the window, and click Start Queue at the bottom left. This will install Daz Studio. Once installed, you will see it listed under the Installed tab.
