View Full Version : X64 installation need Sentinel Dongle Driver?

10-20-2005, 03:19 PM
I tried to install it today but I received a note:

"Make sure that you have the Sentinel Protection Drivers installed and Lighwave dongle attached before proceeding."

I removed the dongle prior to installation thinking that its like the original installation where the installer will install the dongle driver first and then attach the dongle and then the Lightwave program.
Chuck mentioned that dongle intallation is included but look like its not.
Please advise how you installed yours.

Mine worked fine, admittly i have a fresh install of XP64 no LW on it at all. But all i did was this.

*Pluged my dongle in, windows finds new hardware, tell it to search the folder where i unzipped the beta drivers i got from the PC help section

*Windows finds driver and installs the drivers

*Run the LW8.5 64bit installer

*Register LW at the end of the install with my new Key (you need a new key for 64bit version, get it from where you downloaded the update)

*Run LW
