View Full Version : Drag and Drop License not working for me.

Installed LW11.6 on my home computer and the drag and drop license.lwk isn't working.

Then, tried at the studio and worked fine.

What's the common practice when this happens?

When I open Layout in red letters it shows: The license key (LICENSE.LWK) file/ Hardware Lock Cannot be Found. Is there a place I can past it so it fixes this?

You could place it in your C:\Users\[userid]\.NewTek\LightWave\[lwversion]\licenses folder

Thanks nickdigital. Same info I got here afterwards. But still no good. Unistalled 11.6, Deleted .Newtek folder from my user and reinstalled again. Drag dropped nothing, check the file and it was in place. I've noticed it makes a folder for 11.0 and 11.6, so I've put the LWK file on both folders' licenses folder and still nothing... :/

Dropping an email. Thanks.

Permissions or firewall issue?
