This is a step-by-step guide with screen shots that shows you how to install ExP add-ons into Poser on the Mac. These screen shots show Poser 7 but they also work for Poser 6. If you are using Poser 7 Pro, the procedure is similar with the exception that you will need to choose 'DAZ Studio' as the target application and then browse to the correct path (Poser 7 Pro). At no time, is the target folder 'runtime' or 'downloads.' If you use the runtime or the download folder, the product will not work properly.
The screen shots are for the installation of V4.2 Morphs++. HOWEVER, they apply equally to any ExP add-on. Make sure that you have the required base figure installed first.
These are some ExP add-on installers
Double-click the icon to launch the installer. The screen shot shows Victoria 4.2 Morphs++ but your view may be different depending upon which add-on you are installing.
The next screen gives you the option of having an uninstaller. This is optional but if you are not sure, we recommend that you choose 'yes' to have it create an uninstaller.
The license agreement is next. Please take a moment to read through it and choose “I accept the agreement”, and click Next when you are ready to move on.
Make sure the correct path is in the field (The default location for installing content on a Mac is /Applications/Poser 7). If it is not, then click the yellow folder icon and browse to the correct folder as shown.
We generally do not recommend setting up a custom runtime, especially if you are a new user. If you do insist on using a custom runtime, please make sure that the target directory is EXACTLY THE SAME as the directory you used for the base. If you install the ExP add-on to a different path then where the base was installed, the add-on will NOT work.
Setup tells you it is “Ready to Install”. Press 'next' to begin the installation
Setup installs the files to your hard drive.
After the files have been installed, you will receive a confirmation message. Next, the initialization process will install additional files that are required for this product to work correctly. Push the Next button to continue.
The last step will ask if you would like to run the initialization script and display the readme. Leave both boxes checked and press 'Finish.' It is also possible to run the initialization script manually.
Next, you should get a message that tells you that initialization is complete. If you do not get this confirmation message, you will need to run the initialization script manually. Otherwise, click “OK”.
Finally, the readme will appear. You will need to use the readme to locate where the new content can be found in your Content tab.
Congratulations! Your installation is now complete!
