View Full Version : Moving LW to another PC

Ok, I went and done it. I bought a new PC and plan to make my old one into a render node. My question now is, how hard is it going to move LW to another PC? I have been on the upgrade path since version 6.5. I hoping there is some trick out there where as I only need to install 8.0 plus the patch to 8.2. I also need to move my copy of Sasquatch.

Thanks for advice.

Should be Just that easy install 8 upgrade with 8.2 - and while your at it install on any other PC you might have as the dongle is an easy thing to move around. I have 7.5 adn 8.2 on two PCs Home/studio.. and a laptop. Just ahve to use them one at a time.

Newtek did a great thing with the realease of 8 as they have it install in its own directory so you get to keep 7.5d up and running if you need to fall back.


Jump in the water is fine.

Just to confirm with my official NewTek hat on, that's one of the beauties of LW... :)

Thanks...that was earier than I thought it would be. Now to run some benchmarks between the two systems and see if there is any real increases in rendering speeds.
