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.

Here is a list of the basic items that automatically install when you first install Daz Studio. This includes the Interactive Tutorials with all the items needed to complete them:

- Dark Fantasy Weapons for Genesis 3 and 8 Female(s)

    Same here, download manager says the login or password are incorrect, even though they are not, so I can't download or install anything. Can't give you guys money if I can't install the software :)

    But what are you talking about? I meant that Apple did not allow me to use Install Manager. If I try to open the program, it closes immediately and when I want to install the models I'm buying, what I see is a message that say : Apple doesn’t open these kind of web site: Firefox⬇️


    Just I am looking for some of you who could help me or has the same problem. As not said and thank the same

    I got the login password incorrect message too, despite being certain it wasn't. I went to the DAZ website and did the "forgot password" function, received an email to reset my password, reset it to exactly what I had originally typed it in as and then could login in the DAZ installer and run it. I then got a suspicious message about "osascript" needing permissions. Not sure what that was but risked allowing it. I hope the DAZ installer doesn't contain malware. It seems pretty flaky compared to most other software I've used.

    btw, regarding, "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."
    you don't have to do that. You can just right click the installer, click "Open" then say OK or whatever the option is (I can't repeat now that I've done it and don't remember exactly).

    As of today on my WINDOWS 10 with all permissions removed I still get the error : CANT FUNCTION WITH ELEVATED PERMISSIONS . Is there some workaround that doesn't include going into the registry ? That solution was offered in the forum .
