I bought a pre-owned copy of lightwave 7 and installed. Can I upgrade directly to 7.5c or should I try to upgrade to

Do I install it in the same directory as lightwave 7, or does it go somewhere else?

7.5 is an update for 7.0
7.5c is an update for7.5

You need to download and install the 7.5 update, before downloading and installing 7.5c. Each installation will ask you where you want to install to. You should specify the folder where LightWave is already installed on your system.

If your LightWave 7 installation folder is called LightWave 3D 7.0, you might want to rename it to just LightWave before installing. LightWave 3D 7.0 is the default folder name for 7.0, but LightWave is the default folder name for 7.5 and 7.5c.

I would also suggest making a backup of your current LW folder, when I upgraded it hosed some things, like my presets folder...
