View Full Version : Content directory not functioning properly

10-02-2011, 05:07 AM
Hi guys (and/or girls), I have a question that I would greatly appreciate anybody's help with.

So I'm running Lightwave 10 on a 64 bit- Mac OS 10.6 computer and the Content Directories are not working (well I assume they aren't) properly.

specifically, the problem happens when I'm loading a .lws file in Layout. Even though I'm sure that I've set the Content Directories to be the right folders the *File Not Found* still comes up every time.
What Am I doing wrong here?

Make sure your subdirectories are named the exact default names,


use "Use Custom Paths" feature in the Content Directory preference panel.

EG: Checking here, I just noticed that for some reason while all my other folders were set correctly, the IMAGES path was set to the Desktop. How'd that happen? ::grrrrr:: You never know when that thing is going to bite your butt.

If this continues to be a problem, UNcheck "Auto-Detect" --- it might be boning you.
