The fix is to save a notepad file called "Poser.txt", in your designated runtime folder, then rename that said same "Poser.txt", to "Poser.exe".  You can then point your DS installers to that runtime folder.  You can do that to each of your runtime folders that will have DS installers which call for a designated "Poser.exe" to be present.

I've got the hang of dual-mode self-installers; those dating from Poser versions WITH External Runtime support just need to be told that is DS and where to go.

Then I go through and strip out the DS stuff...

Those aimed at DS with a nod to Poser are a little trickier. I've a collection that must be converted with DSON etc, but haven't yet mustered the attention span...

For 'occupational therapy', I've been tidying files, transferring more 'finds' and 'funs' to master folder. Rather than clog the Poser Runtime, I'm keeping everything I can 'external', will pull in what I need as required.

Here's my current set-up...

That's interesting...

post only displays left half of first piccy, no side-scroll bar, but a click pops it to full size.

second piccy has a scroll-bar !!

Hmm.

I'm using Chrome, and only the second has a side-scroll bar...

I have only one scroll-bar either, but it moves both pictures. Technically its a frame containing a separate embedded page with both pictures. Its very impractical, but I'm afraid I can't do anything about it. Its in the board's template code, and this is quite old ... way back, they had smaller pictures in mind, probably.

I'm the same as Ahjah, I see one scroll bar at the bottom of the two images, when scrolling it, only the bottom image appears to move... however it does move the top one but not to the same extent beyond the edge, as it does with the bottom one.  I'm of the opinion Nik, has this too, but does not realise the top image has moved at all.

Consider it therapy...

I've been trawling my drives, unpacking decade-old .zip & .rar archives, trying to untangle the 'classic' files there-in.

Some have a 'proper' Runtime, even if that must be moved up a couple of levels to where the External Library system can find it.

Some are 'flat', with a ReadMe which explains what goes where. I copy in an 'empty' folder tree, create, then populate the Geometries' and libraries' sub-folders.

Some are rather more cryptic. I begin by firing up PhilC's wondrous PZ3editor Lite, which can also read CR2 & PP2. That usually lists the references and paths, often provides a clue to which figure.

But, some of the older files seem to be 'munged'. There's a non-ASCII character in position 8~~10 which blocks the editor loading the file. I still haven't figured out how that's done...

Plan_B is to open in Wordpad and scroll...

If I'm lucky, there's external geometry which R. Kawecki's free PropViewer 3.2 can open.  If unlucky, the external geometry has all the components in a central heap, often at different scalings...

Let's not discuss PCFs, which too-often refer to a figure version which is now unavailable...
