View Full Version : Lightwave is fine, turn it off, then it has forgotten everything...

Hi all.

Anyone had this?

You go home and everything is fine, then you load up lightwave the next day and pretty much all plugins and preferences have gone? Set back to factory inexpicably.

Probably just happened to me.

I've installed pretty much everything else.

The only one left that I haven;t got is ItemMotionHandler.

Fixed ItemMotionHandler anyhoo. I had to re-install simplerigger. Still non the wiser as to why it had amnesia though...

I've had this issue before. The best way I found to prevent this happening again is to completely close lw down properly (including hub) when finished installing plugins/preferences etc.

Then restart lw and the next time it crashes it will remember everything.

Hi mate.

Thing is it had been fine for 5 months. Then one day :blip. Gone.

It had been shut down and restarted and shut down millions of times.

Sorry, but I'd blame your IT bods, or Windows. Not sure how it could be Lightwave's fault. Do you have roaming profiles at work? Sometimes profiles become corrupt, and are reset... so maybe it's that?

Yeah could be. I dunno. Well, I guess we can consign this to the mystery bin.
