View Full Version : Lightwave goes nuts on me for 2nd time in a week.

I've had this issue for a long time that Lightwave for some reason resets its configuration and I lose all my menu and shortcut settings very often.
But now it went all nuts on me. When I launch layout I get a black thin window saying "file not found" and when I hit escape twice, layout loads up with an all black interface. I guess the way to fix this is to delete the main config files and restart, but it has gone too far. I need to get to the bottom of this once and for all.

edit: I forgot to add. I'm on win7 64bit with the 11.6.3 version

Well it looks like by just moving the file "LW11-64.cfg" I managed to make it start properly again. But i still don't know what's causing it. Both new and old LW11-64.cfg seem to have settings saved in them, but in different order.

Loading scenes made with newer versions of LW can mess up your configs, dunno if that is causing it.

I believe that he's talking about the original and re-created config of the same version.
