How do I find out my dongle ID?

It's not displayed when I launch Modeler, or in the about box...

Moving to another PC, and can't find my old license.key file

Under 7.5b at least, there's a makelicense generic layout plugin. It shows the dongle ID in that dialog.

don't see a makelicense plugin anywhere in 7.5b... however I've found an app called getid.exe that does the job.

Problem solved (just need my lic file form Newtek)

Key file is in your lightwave\program directory. Without it lw runs in demo mode. If that is the case call newtek for a reminder.;)

Not to forget the usual reminder about notepad appending .txt to license.key - quote the file name in the save dialog of notepad (i.e. "license.key" as the filename). That should see you clear of any problems. Once you have it working, stick a copy of the .key file somewhere safe in case a future update causes problems :)
