View Full Version : Where Are LW 11.5 Config Files Installed For Win 7, 64-Bit?

I currently have 9.6 installed (Win 7, 64-bit) and my config files are located in C:\Users\My Computer

As I recall, they were installed here by default.

I plan to upgrade to 11.5 very soon and would like for both 9.6 and 11.5 to coexist. However, where will the 11.5 config files be installed? I've seen on the forum that 11.5 for Mac installs the config files in a separate 11.5 folder, but what about for Win 7? A separate folder would be great to avoid the chances of conflict.

They can coexist just fine by default (it installs them in separate folder by LW version name i.e. in case of 11.5 it's "c:\Users\Lewis\.NewTek\LightWave\11.5\" or oyu can redirect them with -c switch to whatever location you want. I have several instlalations of SAME LW version (for different screen resolutions) and each one has it's own configs folder.

In here unless you redirect them manually.
C:\Users\[user]\.NewTek\LightWave\[version number]
