Change Log

Below is a “sanitized” version of the Install Manager change log. This information is posted as part of a conscious effort to be more transparent in the development process. Not all information relating to a particular build is presented on this page - some information is still considered private and is therefore not included.



General Release Channel

This is the channel where the “production ready” build is distributed to the general public.

Private Build Channel

This is the channel where the builds that are not considered “production ready” yet are provided for testing by a select group of individuals that represent the user-base and serve as the “front line” or the “canary in a coal mine” for a time before the build is promoted. This channel typically provides a build that is in the BETA phase of development, but technically can provide a build in the ALPHA phase.

  • Fixed folder/menu names for SKU ranges in filters

Install Manager : Incremented build number to 1.1.0.75


  • Initial support for 64-bit version SKUs; starting with this build, a 32-bit version running on a 64-bit OS should download the 64-bit version SKU during an update

Install Manager : Incremented build number to 1.1.0.76


  • Build system tweaks

Install Manager : Incremented build number to 1.1.0.77


  • Source maintenance

Install Manager : Incremented build number to 1.1.0.78


  • Build system tweaks

Install Manager : Incremented build number to 1.1.0.79


  • Fixed Windows 10 and OS X 10.10 (Yosemite) OS reporting; will need to use native APIs for newer values

Install Manager : Incremented build number to 1.1.0.80


  • Made adjustments to installer logic to facilitate uninstalling the 32-bit version during install of the 64-bit update
  • Work on support for the 32-bit version running on a 64-bit OS, switching to the 64-bit version during an update; handles uninstalling 32-bit version during install of 64-bit version

Install Manager : Incremented build number to 1.1.0.81


  • Added display of bitness to login, main and settings dialogs

Install Manager : Incremented build number to 1.1.0.82


  • Made adjustment to bitness display

InstallMgr : Incremented build number to 1.1.0.83


  • Extended detection/logging of Mac version; 10.11 (El Capitan), 10.12 (Sierra) and 10.13 (High Sierra)
  • Fixed path construction issues on Mac update install
  • Updated installer splash

InstallMgr : Incremented build number to 1.1.0.84


  • Build system tweaks

InstallMgr : Incremented build number to 1.1.0.85


  • Fixed OS X support of the 32-bit version running on a 64-bit OS and automatically switching to the 64-bit version during an update
  • Fixed OS X support of uninstalling the 32-bit version during install of the 64-bit version
  • OS X 10.6 is (one of) the last versions to support a 32-bit (x86) kernel; detection of bitness has proven unreliable thus far, therefore the 32-bit version is assumed for OS X 10.6 during an update initiated from a 32-bit version; this behavior can be overridden by pressing/holding the [Shift] modifier when the check for an update begins (e.g., initial login, refresh) in order to force a switch to the 64-bit version

InstallMgr : Incremented build number to 1.1.0.86


  • Build system tweaks
  • Fixed an issue that allowed the application update check to be initiated from the refresh button (by holding the Ctrl modifier) while the application is in offline mode
  • Fixed copyright and branding consistency in resources
  • Fixed labeling of “BETA” in the installer/uninstaller
  • Fixed labeling of “64-bit” in the installer/uninstaller
  • Fixed labeling of “BETA (64-bit)” desktop shortcut on Windows
  • Fixed labeling of “BETA (64-bit)” start menu entries on Windows
  • Fixed bitness labeling of uninstaller feedback during an update
  • Fixed (cross-bitness) update process execution
  • Added the ability to ignore the GUID compare during an update check; hold the [Alt] modifier; provides a means of forcing the update routine (e.g., switch from 32-bit to 64-bit within the same version, re-download/re-install the same version)

InstallMgr : Incremented build number to 1.1.0.87


  • Build system tweaks; Mac
  • Fixed cyclic redundancy check (CRC) on Mac 64-bit; prevented unpacking/installing

InstallMgr : Incremented build number to 1.1.0.88


  • Build system tweaks

InstallMgr : Incremented build number to 1.1.0.89


  • Build system tweaks; Mac
  • Fixed an issue with Mac 64-bit rPath; vcomponents

InstallMgr : Incremented build number to 1.1.0.90


  • Running the primary application with elevated permissions on Windows is now prevented by default; running with elevated permissions can cause conflicts with accessing folder/files/registry keys; the application itself does not (and should not) require elevated permissions to run; a helper application requests elevation as required and is limited to necessary operations

InstallMgr : Incremented build number to 1.1.0.91


  • DAZ3DIMHelper now prints version/copyright information to stdout when executed from command line
  • Added a check for UAC being disabled on Windows before checking for elevated permissions
  • Fixed an issue with version reporting

InstallMgr : Incremented build number to 1.1.0.92


  • Attempt to drop elevated privileges when launching the application from the installer; the installer runs elevated, but the application should not

InstallMgr : Incremented build number to 1.1.0.93


  • Build system tweaks
  • Switched to an alternate method of launching the application from the installer on Windows; causes application to be launched with desktop user permissions

InstallMgr : Incremented build number to 1.1.0.94


  • Build system tweaks

InstallMgr : Incremented build number to 1.1.0.95
