View Full Version : Constant crashing

10-23-2018, 11:09 PM
I've been using Lightwave for years and never had I had so much crashing.

I just updated to the latest version and I can't open a file (a plain box), create an object (just another plain box), or replace a texture without a crash.

I get the crash report box but Lightwave will stay open so I can do some frantic saving and it will close immediately if I "Send Report."

Windows 10 - I've been running Lightwave 15 on the same computer with no problems. Crashing started with 15 after the last update before 18 and it's been a crash-fest ever since to the point it's unusable.

Windows, drivers, etc. are all up-to-date.

I don't know what could be the problem so any suggestions are appreciated.

1) Remove LW configuration files. Install LW again.

2) Don't run different versions of LW at the same time.. You need to first shutdown hub, then run LW.

3) Graphics card driver. Downgrade or upgrade.

Windows, drivers, etc. are all up-to-date.

Up-to-date (=the latest) does not mean they are stable..

You may find you get crashes if your opening 2015 or earlier scenes in 2018, with incompatible plugins etc.
Have you tried a fresh 2018 session.
