lw 8 can't see my 7.5 scene files(but does see objects files).
my content directory is set the same as 7.5. if i load a old object
into layout and save,it'll show up as a scene.
i have some big scenes from 7.5 i'd like to use in lw8.
have any answers? scott

I just tried LW8 on my system and I have no problem loading any of the scenes that came with 7.5. Would it be possible that your upgrade is lacking some kind of plugin or something that the original file required. If that was the case some kind of error should pop up. Can you see the scene file using explorer or other file manager. In windows 7.5 had a problem with deleting scene files. I don't kow about MAC users. What are you using MAC or Windows. Do you have a firewall running on your system. Software versions of firewalls can play havac on LW. If you can see the scene in your file manager, can you click on it and make it load that way? Did you happen to install another program after LW8, it maybe possible that program is using the same extention that LW uses for scenes.

i figured it out.i never put the prefix .lws on my scenes. if i load a scene in 7.5 and then save using .lws it shows up in 8.0.
all is well(so far). thanks scott
