Character Creator 3
Issue 7755
Problems with Smart Gallery
"Please read the "HowTo.txt" in the .zip before updating."

First of all there is no "HowTo.txt" file to read in the zip.

"The hotfix install flow should be:
DONE- 1. Switch the Smart Gallery to Online mode.
DONE- 2. Close program
TRIED- 3. Run the Hotfix .bat

Ran 1.13HotFix_CC340.bat as administrator, this is what I got:

C:\WINDOWS\system32>set HOST="localhost"

C:\WINDOWS\system32>set PORT=11810

C:\WINDOWS\system32>set USERNAME= "reallusion"

C:\WINDOWS\system32>set DBNAME="cc3"

C:\WINDOWS\system32>set POSTGRES_BIN="C:\Program Files\Common Files\Reallusion\PostgreSQL\bin"

C:\WINDOWS\system32>"C:\Program Files\Common Files\Reallusion\PostgreSQL\bin"\pg_ctl.exe -o "-p 11810" start -D C:\ProgramData\Reallusion\CMS

C:\WINDOWS\system32>move "C:\ProgramData\Reallusion\ContentManager\ExternalBatchSync\Character Creator\340\RemoveCidList.txt" "C:\ProgramData\Reallusion\ContentManager\ExternalBatchSync\Character Creator"
The system cannot find the file specified.

C:\WINDOWS\system32>call ".\OnlineCC.bat"
'".\OnlineCC.bat"' is not recognized as an internal or external command,
operable program or batch file.

Press any key to continue . . .

"4. Open the program and click Refresh manually."

Tried this anyways but still no different results.

Thanks for your feedback.

We found there's a missing reminder in "HowTo.txt"
After you follow all step, run the hotfix and open program and click Refresh, after all of these: 
* Don't click "Free" item in "Content" panel

Hi Snarp Farkle,

Sorry. The HowTo.txt file was accidentally overwritten internally. Now the file has been recovered. Thank you for your reminder.
