How can I go back to P11 SR3 from SR4.



  • Since I installed SR4 over a week ago, my Poser 11 install is pretty much useless.
    I have reported to tech support and have had a dialog with them, but I want to either uninstall and go back to my initial installation, or somehow roll back prior to SR4 being installed.

    Any ideas how to do this?

    I really would like to use Poser again.

    The DLM probably still has the earlier versions. Look in C:\Users\admin\SmithMicroDLM\Downloads\update.
    That last folder might be "release"; can't remember off hand. Anyway, inside, look in the "installed" folder.



  • On a Mac, try
    ~/SmithMicroDownloadManager/Downloads/update/installed



  • While it's true that Download Manager archives all the installers it runs, and that is a possible avenue to get previous versions installed, I don't think it's the proper solution here.

    Please refer to what I wrote in hmmm ... python error after updating to SR4 regarding the reported issue with installing 11.0.4. The proper solution is to re-run the 11.0.4 installer without merging x86 and x64 installations.

    That path varies from system to system. You can look it up on the main Download Manager window (bottom middle where it says Download Location), or via Edit > Preferences.

    It defaults to %AppData%\SmithMicroDLM on Windows. Installed updaters are located in %AppData%\Roaming\SmithMicroDLM\update\installed.



  • prior to the posts concerning my problem, i ended up deleting the P11 install and redoing the enitre download sequence. it then worked...left off the check for 32bit install.

    Is it necessary to install the 32bit version?

    Not usually, no. I don't currently have it installed. Reasons to install would be if you had content dependent on legacy video codecs that aren't available in 64-bit, or Python add-ons dependent on 32-bit only native binaries.
