Since I really want to make sure that whatever scene I made on one machine, the changes really got saved and really can be replicated on another machine, I continued my journey on trying to install and run Daz Studio on machine other than my Dell laptop M6600. The result wasn't as smooth as I would hope it to be.
First I continue having problem running Daz Studio on my MacMini, even for Daz Studio 3. I even successfully got Daz Studio 3 Pro installation going on by first mark the installation file as in Windows 7 compatibility and then run it in administrator mode. Yet when I opened the application and tries the save something, I got the same problem: folder list didn't show up on "Save File" dialog. I pretty much concluded that I have no choice by reinstall the whole operating system. And this time, of course, I will try to do a TrueImage before I move on to something bold.
And then I tried installing and running Daz Studio 4.5 on my closet Dell home server machine. Installation was ok, but when I tried to run the application I got prompt saying that the app requires OpenGL 1.3 support and my ATI Radeon 4000 only gets OpenGL 1.1 driver. I tried installing the latest driver but it was no use. Sigh, one down.
So, yes, I am about to reinstall Windows 8 again, and I can see that my last day of Christmas holiday (tomorrow) will be totally spent on this fun fun activity.
