Today I installed DAZ Studio 4.6 and on attempting to run it, I get the following ‘File does not exist’ error message. I tried to locate the missing file but did not succeed in doing so. Then I attempted to import Metadata again. But here again, the issue was not resolved. Should I try uninstalling and reinstalling DAZ again? Or can anyone suggest method to replace the missing files without going for an installation again? I am waiting for your ideas on how to resolve this issue. Please advice. Thanks a million for your help.

File does not exist.
A file does not exist error reported on launching DAZ
Funny but this error also happened to me when installing a program on a faulty computer and until now I’m still puzzled why the computer is complaining of a missing file when the installer is a perfectly working installer because it runs perfectly on my other computer. The first thing to check is whether DAZ Studio supports your operating system or not.
Since you are using the latest version, DAZ Studio 4.6, it requires Windows Vista, Windows 7, and Windows 8 all x86 and x64. For Mac users, it requires Mac OS X 10.6 Snow Leopard and up. Your graphics accelerator should support OpenGL 1.6 and higher. So, it seems that your operating system is supported.
Just try reinstalling it maybe something happened during the installation but didn’t warn you of any error. Uninstall DAZ Studio then click Start, All Programs, Accessories, System Tools, and click Disk Cleanup. Select drive C and click OK. Check “Temporary files”, click OK and wait until it is finished then restart your computer.
Install DAZ Studio again then see if it works. It may also help if you will run the program as administrator. Right-click on DAZ Studio icon and select Properties. Select Compatibility tab, in Privilege Level check “Run this program as an administrator”, and click OK. Run DAZ Studio again.
