Ready to throw Poser out the Window Q
« on: February 08, 2015, 08:41:36 PM »
HELP!!! My laptop runs Windows 8.1  I was running into problems with some of my scripts from RDNA and so instead of trying to track down all of the parts for each script, I opted to do a complete uninstall (clearing out registry and everything) then reinstall using the SM Downloader (Poser 10).  Before, I would have issues with some images not rendering completely, but it was a random issue and usually after a computer restart, I was able to do the render.  Now, however, I cannot render anything that has indirect lighting or sub surface scattering.  When I do, it finishes the first pass, then just stops rendering.  I tried to use render passes but I got told that Poser was out of memory.  Now, mind you, I'm running with 6 gig's of ram and some of the stuff I tried rendering I had rendered previously just fine.  I was going to try to use Semideui's (sorry, I know this is a mis-spell but I think everyone will know who I mean) render script but now that won't even run.  I'm so fed up, I'm ready to scream...Just when I was finishing up a couple of items for the store and a sweet Valentines day freebie :(

Have You checked your flash player and seen if it is up to date also your video drivers  also Poser 10 has a service patch
Service Release 5.1 (SR5.1) - IMPORTANT Version: 10.0.5.28445, Released 12/17/2014

That is about all I can say As I  have poser 5.

Radkres:
Yea, part of the rational behind the new downloader was so that it was easier to keep track of updates...I made sure I installed everything, including that update.  My flash and video drivers are also all up to date and I ran a full diagnostics on my computer to make sure my ram was functioning properly and find any other issues.  Ram tested perfectly and other issues were resolved easily so I don't think it's so much a problem with my computer as something in Poser, but I wanted some feedback before I go to SM with it (figuring the more information I had before hand, the better the response would be from them.)

some of the google search info states something about external library .... and the sequence of installation ... ?  Most people are having issues with PP2014 more than P10 ...

I installed with the SM Downloader, and installed the base then all of the content, then the SR5 and content update.  I tried to make sure I installed everything in the proper order...google's been no help for me either, as you said, most issues are with 2014 (which I really want to upgrade to but can't afford until they put it on sale again).  The part I really can't understand is the scene's I've rendered perfectly prior to this won't render now....I'm totally flummoxed by it all

Not certain if this is any help at all but when I have had issues with Poser all I did to get it to behave was delete all of the preferences found in the My Documents > Application Data > Poser ...

If you do not see it you might have to go to the tool bar and click on Tools > Folder options > select show hidden folders

Then go to C:> Documents and settings > Users > Application Data > Poser ... delete the preference files I don't recall the name of them as I am work but there is three files that you have get rid of and then go back to business as usual.

Took me a few to find it in the Win 8.1 structure as it has changed a bit.  However, once I located it, I found 2 poser folders with version 10 in them, regular and poser pro.  I'm attaching screenshots so you can see what each contains...and mayhap give me some bloody clue as to what to delete lol

Poser 10

From the file Library Pref all the way down. A total of eight (8) files.
Leave the folders when you restart Poser it will build new default preferences and then you can tweak as you like.

Poser Pro 10

Library Pref and the config file for Poser again leave the folders

Basically all he XML files and the Poser Config file go bye-bye ....  leave the folders in there.

Obviously do this with Poser closed then when you open Poser it will build a fresh set of files

I don't have Poser 10...I have 2012 pro (Which is just 9 on steroids) installed on win 8.1 and this is the way the folder looks by default.

Have 7, 9 and 10 over here and when it starts misbehaving all those stand alone file that you are showing in the directory are the ones I delete restart and it plays nice then.

Have to redo all ones personal preferences default stage, camera, lighting, render parameters and so on but if that is what it takes to get it to play nice then it is the way to roll.

I have noticed something strange about Poser and win 8.1.... My Poser Pro disc is a dual install, both 32 and 64 bit versions...but, if I launch the 64 bit version it will crash or lock up tighter than a nuns...(%$##@)

The 32 bit version runs fine....even though it's on a 64 bit OS. Go figure!
