What is a "windows" folder? What does that mean? Has any other user got NRC working?

You will need to either setup a "windows" folder -or change the pathing -

it's in the docs -

Thank you for your report.

It means that for the sake of having heterogeneous render environments (a mix of Macs and PCs working on renders) you need to have two folder structures - one for Mac, one for Windows - like so:


config
osx
the contents of your osx ~/NewTek/LightWave/<version> folder
windows
the contents of your user\NewTek\LightWave\<version> folder
plugins
osx
the entire LightWave support folder if you can't be bothered to get just the bits you need
windows
the entire LightWave support folder if you can't be bothered to get just the bits you need

in each case, the paths used should be network accessible UNC paths, so not:

c:\NewTek\LightWave...

but

\\<machine>\c\NewTek\LightWave

(for PC and similar for Mac)
