I'm interested in knowing if the free electronic upgrade from LW 7.5 does applies in this case.
A friend of mine want to sell me LW7.5 Commercial DUO with USB Dongle and he said that it should be freely upgradable to LW[8]

The product was ordered on : 15 Jan 2003

The product description is almost like this :

Lightwave 3D [7.5] DUO USB Dongle + Ten DVDs
offer till the end of February in 2003.

Original price 700 UK pounds, price for me 350 UK Pounds.

I hope you answer me soon.

I can't tell you for sure, but that seems too early for the free upgrade to LW8. It only applied to purchases after a particular date.

Looking again at your original post, maybe there's a misinterpretation.

If you are being sold LW7.5 for 350 including the DVDs, I would say it's a bargain, free upgrade to LW8 or not.

Maybe 'freely upgradeable' means 'you will be able to upgrade later to LW8 at tyour own cost'?

If you do buy, the licence must be transferred via Newtek, or you won't be able to upgrade.

No, i was only saying that the original package included the 10 DVD from Desktop Images, but he did say that 350 pounds was the price for LW DUO only.

For this reason I had to be sure that it would be freely upgradable to lw[8] via download.
