View Full Version : Lightwave Install Issues - Strike 2

11-16-2005, 05:46 PM
Just got my spanking new G5 quad.
Can't wait to do some renders but 8.0 won't run.

Here's the deal.
- Installed 8.0 from Newtek Disks
- Plugged in Dongle (registration recognized Key)
- Entered Lic Key & it took (wrote Lic Key file although icon is not TextEdit, rather from Keynote)
- Installed current Sentinel drivers from web

When I launch LW or Modeler the icon jumps once and quits, or doesn't launch at all because no dialogs appear. Hub will launch, but not the apps.

Also tried:
-copying cmdline files from each program from my host that was running 8.0 replacing the pref path with the new G5's path. No dice.

I'm not kicking and screaming yet and have only spent an hour fooling with this, but every LW install seems to have it's own set of nuisances.

Anyone else having this problem with G5 - thinking this is related to the license.key file?

Thanks & good Karma to ya.

That's odd. I've never had any problems with a LightWave install. I use a parallel dongle still, so that may be why.

Yazan, thanks for the tip.

Wouldn't have thought about that past problem with the eve3.framework (why every install can be quirky).

Installer places it in user/library/frameworks without giving any options.

Took about 10 mins. to figure out where it should be
