PLEASE HELP.....

I downloaded and installed the update, but now lightwave says it is the "Discovery Edition". I am guessing that this means I need to apply my registration number or something like that. How do I do this or otherwise get rid of the "Discovery Edition", so that it is a "normal" version of lightwave?

I had a look at the registration page but, step 2 says "Go to Start | Programs | Register LightWave | Register LightWave." and I don't have this option on my system.

I installed it into the same directory as my LW8, so it should have seen my License.key file, but it doesn't seem to.

Thanks for your help.

Did you have the dongle in during installation ?
Did you back up the cgf file as advised ?

Updated without any problems tonight.

Yes the dongle is installed. As far as I know the cfg file doesn't have anything to do with the registration of Lightwave...or does it?

OK. I figured it out. For some reason, I had to re-install the Sentinel drivers. Now I am back to normal mode. :D

That's strange. I put my update in the 8.0 folder too and it worked without a hitch.

If your License.key file is missing then just add a new text file with your license key in it .. otherwise try the driver stuff others have said :p
