I'm having a little trouble finding the config files on my machine. I'm running Windows XP Home.

For Win 2K, the manual says they're in the "Documents and Settings" folder. In that folder, I have no files - only subfolders. So I did a search of the subfolders and found nothing with the name "Lightwave" except the links in my start menu.

Can anyone send me the location of the files or the name of one or more files?

Also, what's the general concensus on the upgrade? Stable? Buggy? I see a number of folks with messages about problems, but haven't heard much to say whether that's the norm or the exception.

Thanks!

I have WinXP Pro (Polish version) too.

Go to C:\Documents and Settings\, press Find/Search, search for Files and Folders, in the File name or part type *.cfg and you should see couple LightWave configs.

On my machine they are in C:\Documents and Settings\Admin.

They will be in the subfolder that matches the user name you are logged in as. In Sensei's example, he is logged in as "Admin". All the files follow LW*.cfg naming scheme.
