I've just upgraded to a new W7 64bit PC and I want to get my current LW licenses onto it.
At the moment I'm running LW 8.5 and 9.3 off the same dongle on XP pro 32 bit.

As I understand it (from a previous post) I can run both in 32 bit mode on the new system.
Before I start installations etc I just needed some step by step advice as to what to do with license keys, sentinels drivers etc.

My guess is that I can install the apps but Im not sure what to do after that.....

Previous experience with LW installs has been a little convoluted for me and I'm trying to avoid too much down time with head scratching!!

Thanks :D

Install the latest Sentinal drivers using this link:

Then you will need to contact customer support to issue you with a 64-bit key for LightWave, just run LightWave 64 and jot down the dongle hardware ID, give them that, as well as your serial number.
