Daz to Unreal Bridge not working

Hello all,

I am attempting to use the Daz to Unreal bridge, but it is not functioning correctly.
I have downloaded the Daz bridge and installed it to my UE4 engine, v4.25.4.
When I start up UE4 engine, I create a new project, basic 3rd Person.

Then, I attempt to enable the DAZ to Unreal plugin. It prompts to restart UE4. After restarting UE4 and attempting to load my very basic project, it pops up with a window telling me:
The following modules are missing or built with a different engine version:
DazToUnreal
DazToUnrealDeveloper
DazToUnrealRuntime

Engine modules cannot be compiled at runtime. Please build through your IDE.

I have searched all over Google, and none of the “solutions” fix this for me. I basically cannot use it at all.
Does anyone have any insight to this?
If I installed the Daz to Unreal via the Epic Games content, shouldn’t it have everything required?

Please advise.
Thanks.DAZ to UE error

Follow-up:
I have recently tried two different “manual” attempts, found on youtube, but they do not seem to correct the issue either.
Also went through uninstalling/reinstalling the module but that does not seem to resolve it.

I am having exact same issue. I even uninstalled both daz studio and unreal engine and re try the whole process several times, but same result. It seems like the engine version is somehow stuck into the plugin setting that can’t be deleted by just uninstalling the plugin or removing Unreal Engine Install Location variable at daz central.

Anyone else has solution to this issue? I am about to format my windows just for this.

I believe it has something to do with the updated/current builds of UE4 vs. the version of DazToUE4, according to the research I have done.
Apparently, the DazToUE4 module/plugin has not been updated for the newer versions of UE4. Also, I am not able to install older versions of UE4 any longer, whereas in the past there always seemed to be options to have various versions of old/new UE4.

I hope they rectify this soon, because I spent money on this plugin only to have it not work. I am not able to import any of my Daz work into UE4, which is about to cause me to hang-up UE4 altogether, along with other inherent UE4 issues such as failures to load textures/meshes on character models.
Perhaps Unity offers alternatives that work.

Other than that, it has been suggested that I use Daz to Blender to UE4, or some variation thereof… which is not really conducive to the time I have, due to not knowing how to use Blender because I’ve never used it. So, basically, I would have to learn an entire new program/interface just to try to import things… highly frustrating. My projects are at a standstill due to this issue and there does not seem to be any hope on the horizon.

I have not yet tried UE5, for various reasons, but I would assume the same issues would exist.
