Every time I attempt to open the graph editor LW8 crashes.
This only occurs when opening the graph editor.

System Specs.=HP Pavilion ZE5630US Laptop
768MGB Ram ATI Radion Mobility with latest driver from HP.
Windows XP Pro with all updates
directx 9.0c

Any help would be appreciated

I had this problem in 7.5 for a while !

I eventually solved it by deleting the config files and letting Lightwave create fresh ones when fired up (I think one of them had gotten corrupted somehow).

It does mean having to re-add all the plug-ins etc. , but hey, at least you'll be able to use Lightwave !

Thanks for the input but unfortunately that did not work.
Been in contact with Newtek and so far it's unresolved.
Appears to be an ATI working with opengl issue.

I've had this problem on 6.x and then on 7.x and my fix was getting and installing the latest video card drivers.

Tried that also; even going back to older drivers still the problem persists.
Thanks again for the input

I had to use some very very old ATI drivers for LW to work.
