I am using 9.6 with Win7 64 bit on a new system. None of my LW default presets are showing up at all. When I look in the preset folder they all show as Outlook data files. Can someone help me in fixing this?

Presets are loading fine for me. I even have my presets organized in a custom location.

Do you have something selected that would allow the presets to show up? For example do you have a surface selected in Surface Editor?

The presets are all in the LW folder under surfaces and in their appropriate folders, but they are all suffix'd as 'outlook' files. I can change the suffix to the preset suffix, I just don't know what that is, or why that happened that way.

What's the Outlook suffix? My preset files are .pst files.

the outlook data file has the same suffix .pst, and since I have Outlook on my computer, they are showing as outlook data files and not lightwave preset files

I'm not sure if that matters to LightWave...does it?

ok after some playing around I was able to get it working. The files all defaulted to Outlook files with the pst suffix. If I right clicked them and selected 'open with' and changed it to Lightwave, it changed the icon to Lightwave icons and now they open correctly. Pretty weird. Thanks for the suggestions.
