Install Manager cannot find a required path error

You will need to define an installation path for your applications in the DAZ Install Manager (DIM).

To do this, please follow these steps:
1) Open DIM and log in.
2) Click on the gear icon in the top right corner.
3) Click on the Applications tab and you will see "Name" and "Path".
4) Click on the "+" at the bottom left of the screen, choose the applications name, version and bit; click the "..." button and browse to the installation path of your application and click "Accept".
PLEASE NOTE: If you do not choose the Name of the application from the drop down, when adding your new path, it will show "Daz Studio" and will not work.
Depending on the plugin or application you are installing, the application path will vary. Here are the default paths for Windows and Mac.
Photoshop 3D Bridge:
(This plugin is for Photoshop. If you do not use Photoshop, you do not need to install this plugin.)
WINDOWS: C:/Program Files/Adobe/Photoshop CC
MAC: Applications/Adobe Photoshop CC

Bryce 7 Pro:
WINDOWS: C:/Program Files (x86)/DAZ 3D/Bryce7
MAC: Applications/DAZ 3D/Bryce7

Carrara 8.5:
WINDOWS: C:/Program Files/DAZ 3D/Carrara8.5
MAC: Applications/DAZ 3D/Carrara8.5
C:/Program Files (x86)/DAZ 3D/Hexagon 2.5
MAC: Applications/DAZ 3D/Hexagon 2.5

WINDOWS: C:/Program Files/Smith Micro/Poser 2014 or
MAC: Applications/Smith Micro/Poser 2014

    When I follow the instructions above, after clicking on the applications tab, the file name for the 3d bridge file doesn't show up...I click the + at the bottom left, and it only gives me a list.  Doesn't give the opportunity to add the Photoshop 3D Bridge file.  What's next?
