View Full Version : LW8 registration question

05-14-2004, 12:10 PM
Hi folks,

About a month ago, I bought LW7.5 and then got the upgrade to LW8 and when I installed it, I was asked if I already had a license key from New Tek and thinking they meant my 7.5 license key which IS in 1234-1234-1234 format, I said "yes" and typed it in and went on with the installation and everything was fine.
Now when I open up LW8, I get the familiar "Your temporary license key has "X" number of days remaining".
Do I need to register again and get a new license for LW8?
I'm guessing I do after getting that message when I open up LW8.

If I understand others who have discribed the process. The new serial# is on the envelope your software was shipped in. If you threw it away you can call Customer Service to see if they will look it up for you. Hope this helps. I'm still waiting on my copy :(

Yes you do, go to http://register.newtek.com/ to register lw 8.
NOTE: The serial number for LightWave [8] is found in the front label of the envolope.
