Im running LW 8.5 32bit on a Windows 7 64 bit machine (I wanted to make sure all the plugins still worked) and Im getting some weird object loading problems in Layout.
Ive only just purchased the machine and this appears to be one of the 'teething' problems.

When I load a scene I am prompted for the objects which I point LW at to complete the scene load.
I save the scene, clear it and reload. Everything then comes in fine.
If I quit Lightwave then re-load the scene it loses the objects again.:cursin:
It remembers the texture maps and everything else, but for some reason quitting layout means the object path is lost.

Incidentally I use Dstorms LWSN controller and it loads the scenes with the objects without any problem.

Any ideas?

Perhaps you have not set the content directly properly. I 9.6 you press o to bring up the preferences panel where you can set the the content directory. I don't remember if that is the same in 8.5 but I think it is.
