View Full Version : Can I switch dongle ?

Dear Friends:

I have a nice pc system with lw 9.6 running.
In two years from now, I can afford to buy a nice brand
new pc system.
Will it be possible, when I buy new pc, to switch my original
dongle, from old pc, to new pc, and reinstall lw 9.6 ?
And then add to it whatever new lw upgrade is available ?
Thank you for helping me,

Yes, you can use your current dongle on your new pc. The dongle makes lw portable. Keep in mind you still need the license.key file.

You can have Lightwave installed on many systems. The dongle determines which computer can be running the full version. This is also how you can have a renderfarm with Lightwave on each node. You only need the dongle for setting up the models or animations.
