View Full Version : 7.5b hardware lock

12-20-2004, 11:03 AM
Installing the 7.5b upgrade went smoothly but whenever I run it out pops a message saying that the hardware lock is not found and the only option is to run LW in demo mode. Could it have something to do with the dongle driver? I not sure if I have the dongle installed.

You must have the driver and you must have the dongle attached/installed. Otherwise you get Discovery/Demo mode.

I performed a custom install and I didn't include the sentinel drivers or the content folder. Is the dongle in the sentinel or content folder? Evertime I install the 7.5b upgrade it wants to run in demo mode.

Neither, it should be in your box for LightWave...

Yes, the dongle is a piece of HARDWARE -- it should be in the box you got LightWave in. Without it you will only run in demo mode.
