You using the right key? There's one for 32 bit and one for 64 bit LightWave.

01-24-2011, 10:35 AM
I use the key for 32 bitsr window

And you put the file into the folder path below? Replace [name] with what your log-in is.

here is my url to xp with lgw
C:\Documents and Settings\mynae\.NewTek\LightWave\10.0\licenses
to the license folder I se my license file and I open that file and there are all my license nummber 111-1111-1111 etc

That path is correct. I wonder if you have the wrong license. The license for 10 is different than the one for 9.6.

but this license work to win 7 to that computer that are on reparation now
how shuld I get other win 32 license nummber ?
I cant se that to the register section to lighwave

That's odd. The license number should work on either operating system. The only thing that I can think is that you've installed the 64 bit version of LightWave and are trying to use the 32 bit license file. Could that be a possibility?

No I have install 32 bits vers and I must say this sucks bequse I cant use this now and I have restart this computer 6 times now and the lgw cant finde the license file

01-24-2011, 11:42 AM
here you se the error

01-24-2011, 11:47 AM
What if you put the license file in the same folder where Layout.exe and Modeler.exe is?

You're not using shortcuts that redirect the configs are you?

01-24-2011, 11:49 AM
I have try to put the license file to the same folder that I have layout modeler shortcut yes from the start meny

01-24-2011, 11:53 AM
Here you can se the succses mesages I get when I put in the license nummber and after I restart I get the error

Oh, don't use the registration utility. Edit the license.key file in notepad. Type in your license key and then save the file.

The registration utility doesn't always work.

01-24-2011, 11:55 AM
I olso try to edit that to notepad with the same error

01-24-2011, 12:01 PM
Hm, I'm running out of ideas. You're sure your file is license.key and not license.key.txt?

01-24-2011, 12:04 PM
not .txt and now I dont now how to use this bequse I cant found enny other license to lgw 10 I use from 9 and this work to the other computer

01-24-2011, 12:09 PM
Well the license for 10 is different than the one for 9. Did you register your copy of 10 properly?
