check to make sure its not running already. The default settings for the hub are to Never Shut off once its started.
If you have the little green icon in your system tray right click on it and go into Properties and you can set the Autosave and AutoShutdown functions., as well as selecting CLose (or is it Exit?) which will shut it down.

If thats not the problem its possible the hub,exe file had its attributes altered for some reason (not too unusuall on any microsoft platform it seems :-), so Move to the Lightwave/Program folder, right click on the hub.exe file and go into its Properties,
check to se whats checked in the tick boxes under the ATTRIBUTES
section, like Read Only, or System File or whatever. Uncheck them all.

- Will.
