Last year I bought Lightwave 11 with a totally legitimate licence key for about 1495 dollars.

Today I downloaded one of the free xfrog models from the terragen site. It had many formats so I downloaded the LWO one. Now when I opened up that LWO file [ a cotton plant] I got lightwave discovery edition opening and asking for a licence. So I dragged my licence key over and had to restart lightwave to be "genuine".

Why has this occurred? Will this happen every time I open a LWO file for a Xfrog plant? This at at best very annoying.

The two are unrelated, unless you do open the Xfrog plant, after opening any other LWO and Discovery mode doesn't happen, and it happens again. Weird stuff happens, but I've never heard of an object invalidating the license.
