A Package Supplement File, as the name suggests, is a file that provides supplemental information about an Install Manager compatible package. The supplemental information contained within the file is required by the application so that it can display certain information and perform various tasks.
A Package Supplement File is automatically created upon completing the download of a package through Install Manager. The information contained within this file is derived from product and account history data, retrieved from the Daz 3D store when you log into your account from within Install Manager.
As packages can be downloaded manually outside of Install Manager, and/or originate from sources other than Daz 3D, and then be placed in the “Download To” folder specified in the application settings, Install Manager will generate a Package Supplement File for each package that follows the Package Naming guidelines and doesn't already have one.
If the package contains a “Supplement.dsx” file in the root of the package, Install Manager will parse a subset of the information described below to produce a Package Supplement File next to the package.
If the package does not contain the expected file in the expected location, or if the file cannot be successfully parsed, Install Manager will generate the Package Supplement File from the name and bytes of the package itself.
