For some odd reason Lightwave just crashes when it starts up now, nothing loads. Im running XP Pro.

Ok, I fixed it. I have two monitors hooked up to two different video cards, one Geforce2 mx400 agp, and the other a savage pro or something like that pci. I had to disable the one hooked up to the savage to get lightwave to start. Does anyone know of a reason for this? Not that its much trouble to disable the monitor, just for knowledge's sake.

Did you send bug report to NewTek?

Do the monitors both use nvidia drivers? If so, upgrade the drivers, and that should solve 99% of your problems. I had to download about 15 different nvidia drivers and try them all at one point in time to see which worked and which did not since I kept loosing Direct x or Open GL on dual monitor setup. I think the newest driver at nvidia solves all the problems.

If you have the full sdk installed, there are some little test programs in it that will test your system and tell you if direct x is working right, and if the problem is 3d or 2d or both and on which monitor... use that before and after installing the drivers that you test.
