Also when installing the plugin normally there is a activation window staying up after install that does not happen for me on all the 2020 versions of the octane installer.
Hope that it is solved soon.

I just downloaded OctaneRender_for_DazStudio_2020_1_4_55_STUDIO.exe and ran it, and it popped the Activation Manager open for me with the Activation button enabled so that I could see my activation status. Is this not happening for you?

Nope only for the latest 2019 version it did before with the 2020 versions but after that week off i had and came back to a broken 2020 version the activation window just shows is self for a fraction of a sec when installing and then gone again.
i have no clue whats going on, i left a working octane and came back to a broken one and have not been able to get 2020 versions to work at all.

I have a quick question, is it possible to have a one to one texture look and feel for the character shaders in Iray? Octane tries to convert the Iray materials but when compared, it looks like there is something lacking. Is there a setting we might be missing? or this is what we can expect for the characters to look like after the default conversion?

1)
The auto-conversion will usually not give you the results you want. Especially with skin materials, you almost always have to adjust the bump strenght (usually 0.05-0.15 are good values) as well as the specular roughness (0.2-0.5 are the usual values). Another big thing to keep in mind is the lighting. Octane cannot convert Iray lights, but you can use HDRIs and emissive geometry. The daylight light you use in your pictures makes characters look flat more often than not. Try to use HDRIs and emissive planes.

2)
Looking at your characters eyes, it seems there are some artifacts. Set the ray-epsilon value in the render settings to its minimum value to prevent this.

3)
Make sure that the Surface Material Filter (in the preferences tab) is empty. By default, i think cornea and eylashes are filtered out and not rendered. I attached a picture to show you what it should look like


Thanks for your thoughts. Can you please share some renders of before and after of characters in DAZ Studio that you have successfully rendered in Octane for DAZ Studio to match the Iray character skin renders?

Do you have the latest NVidia drivers installed? Does Octane Standalone 2020.1.4 render on that PC?
