Dear Friends:

I have legit lightwave 9.6 with original dongle (parallel port).
I got free upgrade to lw 10 from newtek.
I tried installing lightwave 10, but it did not work, and I suspect
it needs a new dongle for the USB port. Is this so ?
Do I need a new dongle (USB) for lightwave 10 to work ?
Please help me !!!

Probably not, but only customer service will know for sure.

Maybe you need to downgrade to older Sentinel drivers?

No. I've got an old parallel port dongle dating back to LW5.6. I have been updating every version of LW up to and through LW11 (even Core) with no issues at all.

@snosrap

dear friend, thank you for posting. I believe you must be right.
the usb dongle probably is not needed.
thank you !!!

I know that when I went to using 64bit LW on my 64bit PC I had to trade in my dongle for USB. But check with CS.
