    LW 11.6.3 and OSX 10.12.1 Sierra Install Issue

    I am trying to re-install LW v11.6.3 on my Mac running Sierra 10.12.1.

    The LW installer does nothing. When I activate the installer I get a dialog asking to enter my password
    for the install... then nothing happens.

    I have 2015.3 running on this machine. It seems to work fine.

    anyone else have this issue?

    I'm having the exact same problem.

    Same problem. Lightwave 3d 11.6. I'm moving to a new iMac loaded with Sierra. Moving from an older iMac with El Capitan.

    Downloaded the installer from my Lightwave Account page. When I begin the install, follow the prompts, and then I enter my machine's password, and then nothing happens.

    I looked into migrating assistant, but the migration system has changed along with the chord plugins. Used airdrop to bring over the NewTek folder containing my Lightwave 11.6 applications. I assumed that I could reenter my serial number on first launch.

    I launch Modler, and Mac doesn't want to open it because it's not from the Apple App Store. I override and open it anyway and it encounters a problem, and suggests that I find out if it is compatible with Sierra.

    Should I assume that 11.6 won't work on Sierra? Is there a patch?

    install it in a previous OS and drag and drop it to the new OS is alternate solution, but yeah right click to open and choose open, some people have reported broken things here and there, it seemed to open ok for me but didn't test it much beyond drag out a primitive, have since deleted it as I have 2015.3. Installing it won't break the OS but it won't run perfect as an app will have to upgrade at some point but then file requester windows don't open correctly in 2015 either when run in Sierra so you can't win.

    Hmm, not seeing this issue here (on Sierra), can you describe a bit more?

    they fail to write a windows property list so therefore do not remember the previous size they were dragged out to and perpetually default to their minimum size upon being called which is a total pain in the ***, particularly as Sierra as done away with the min max hide buttons, is that explicit enough for you.( in English 'arse' is not deemed an expletive but perfectly expectable in every day usage )

    I see what you mean. I normally run "DefaultFolderX" (which boosts the default size a bit) and use "columns" mode, the combo seems to make the default a bit more tolerable. Agreed, though, it'd be great if LW properly remembered sizing and placement for dialogs, palette windows, etc. reliably.

    Numerous times I had thought to get this too but when I read how it loads as sepperate app and runs on top of rather replace the Finder I thought better of it, if there is one good thing you can say about Windows is the quality of its finder system, oh and snapable windows.
