So it only took me a month, but I finally got my LW to work on my G5 running Tiger. My problem was simply this. . .LW[8] would not work at all. It would open for 2 seconds then crash and close right away. Tech support couldn't even figure out my problem. I tried every thing on this forum and nothing worked. So here is what I had done to make it work. . . (and it still works great, hasn't crashed once! *crosses fingers*)


back up anything and everything you want to keep. I mean everything!
revert your system back to Panther (insane I know) wipe the whole drive
install LW[8]
Download and install the LW[8.5] update
install Tiger again
open LW and love life once again
then hate it and curse me because you'll have to reinstall all of your software. I know I hate me too.
then love life again.

I hope this helps atleast one person! Cheers!

That is some serious determination! Well done. Most people would've given up long ago.
