Anybody have this up and running in XP?

The installer wouldn't finish for me unless I did a custom install and disabled the visual basic 2008 sp1 installer. It seems to be working now but I don't know what leaving out the vb update might break?

It is an individual issue, for most it works, but I had to email Newtek and arrange a support session, uninstalling and then re-installing Lightwave 11.5 before it will work. I had done this myself several times, but this time, with the Newtek support, it correctly installed and is working as expected. Send them an email/bug report and persist in your expectation that the product you purchased, should work. They haven't ruled out 11.5 for XP but the "hand-writing" is on the wall for all of us, time to upgrade our systems to 64 bit, Win7, (Win8), Unbuntu Studio?? XP is indeed being phased out, after a decade run.

Works fine.
Except new licensing system.
Dongle plugged, no problem.

Well I persisted, and it looks as though the Sentinel installer is to blame. Install that and there's no going back! Unless you start with a clean Windows and 11.03 install anyway.

Thanks for the replies,
