i purchased win7 and im trying to get LW 64bit registered on my
64 bit win7.

after i install LW i go inside the folder to use the registration tool
and enter the number given by newtek.

it say it was entered successfully but when i start the program it
is still in discovery mode.

i looked where the license.key is saved on vista but its not there on
win7 64 bit.

i did a search in win7-64 and saw that there was a license.key file there
on the drive but i cant see the folder.

so i figured i would "show all hidden files" but i can't get to anything
that would let me change that option. sure i will figure it out.

i tried making a directory structure like the 32bit version but that didn't
work.

Are you using the 64bit licence key from NewTek?...the 32bit licence won't work, you need to request the 64bit key.

Try disabling User Account Control

Try updating the sentinal driver

The key should be in "C:\Program Files\NewTek\LightWave 3D 9.6\Programs" as long as you left the installation directory at default.
