View Full Version : LightWave 6.5 Error

Hi, Im getting the following error when trying to open Lightwave Layout. Modeler still works fine. Im running on a Gateway 650 Athlon, 196 mgs of ram. I have tried repairing LightWave with CD, but not reinstalling.

Error Message reads:

LIGHTWAV caused an invalid page fault in
module LWTOOLS3.DLL at 017f:1001a426.

I'm definately no expert at troubleshooting crashing programs, but the LWtools .dll is one of the files in the programs directory of LW. It may have gotten corrupted somehow.

Was LW Layout ever working before this? If so, then that's the problem [or at least one possible culprit]. If it never worked, then a full reinstall of LW may be in order.

It's been a while since I ran version 6.5 [now running 8] , but I know I had my share of problems with the 6.xx versions.

Hope this helps.

Thanks James,
Layout has been working, I did try to install Version 7.5 update to a different harddrive. Don't know if that had anything to do with this problem. As I said It has been working, and modeler still works. Go figure LOL. Thanks for the info. I may have to start clean on both versions.
