I run the update and nothing happens. I runs and gives the repair, modify, remove options, but it does not update.


I tried re-downloading it, running from the lightwave programs directory.

Still running 8.3

ah, it was trying to 'update' the LW64 beta instead of my regular 8.3.

ok, doesn't recognize xp 64 directory structure.
hid lw8.5_64, lw9_64, lw9_32
run 8.5 update /repair
copy everything from program files\newtek\lightwave [8] to program files (x86)\lightwave [8]
presto

LW9?!

LW9!!!!!!

well, MAYBE if I was playing with a LW9 beta, I would be too busy to post so fast :P

What with all that free time, I could squeeze in a trip to the forum.

think it's still up on the 64 bit ftp. really early build, 7/30. watch it though, it'll overwrite all your configs.
