hi all
i am using lw 6.5 on a g4 running os 9.2.2..i am buying a g5 and want to move lw to it..and upgrade to version 8 whatever it is now..will there be any major problems? also i still have the older dongle plugged into an imate..im sure i have to change to the new one,but then how can i use the older set up without the older dongle as a back up?
this is a big move for me any help would be appreciated..i remember what a fuss its been in the past to get things working.
thanks

I'm afraid the answer is that you can't carry on using your ADB dongle - the iMate doesn't work under OSX - but switching to a USB dongle at the same time as you upgrade will cost you no additional fee other than posting it to NewTek. NewTek also has a policy that if you own one version, you effectively own all the previous versions too, so there should be no problem with getting a license key for your 6.5 as well as your new 8.5/9.0.
