Does anyone know what the current situation is concerning using my mac LW version on a PC? Do I have to turn in my mac dongle for a PC Dongle or is the dongle dual?

I'm assuming you have the USB dongle here.

Look and see if the word "DUO" is stamped into the plastic on either side of the dongle. If it is, you have a Mac/PC dongle. If it isn't, you have a Mac-only dongle.

If you do have a Mac-only dongle, contact Customer Service at 1-800-TOASTER or [email protected], and they can give you details about upgrading to a DUO dongle.

If you do have a DUO dongle, there is no charge for installing LightWave on a Mac and/or a PC. However, you will need to contact Customer Service, because Macs and PCs do not generate the same Hardware Lock ID, which means they use different Permanent License Keys as well.
