View Full Version : Demo available

So is there a demo of Lightwave available? I know I've seen many threads complaining about the fact that there is no downloadable demo of Lightwave. Can I call and get one? I have a friend who wants to try out Lightwave and would like to get a demo version of it for him.

Just install your copy on his machine and run it(without the dongle), and it'll run in demo mode.

But won't it only run in demo mode for so long before you have to register it? I guess it depends on how long it will work like that....

Geez, how long will it be before we get a demo version?

Steve, just have him download a copy of 7.5c and it will install and run in demo mode permanently. 8 will also run this way. It won't give the expire notice.

I have e-mailed Newtek about this, they know it works this way but for some reason refuse to "market" it as such. They just ignored my e-mail.

This is one of the things Newtek gets beat up about all the time, and there is just no reason for it.

it is going to be a demo until the end of Q1, will be full but with time limit, probably just like Trial versions of other software. it's been said on cgtalk, but i don't remember who, sorry.
