I've received and installed the upgrade to Lightwave 8.5 + Vue Infinite.
I'va also swapped the parallel dongle with the new USB type and installed the new driver, that 8.5 correctly recognize.

Unfortunately the "old" Lw 5.6c wont start because it fail to detect the USB dongle. The modeler error is "Startup Failure 212: Hardware key not found"

Is 5.6c compatible with USB dongle ?

My system: XP sp2 on a Asus A8N32-SLI-DL + X2 4400+, 2Gb ram

Thanking in advance for any help

This happened to me years ago when we updated to ver. 7. No, version 5 will not work with the USB dongle.

Aghrr!!! I don't use 5.6c often, but I like to have it available for certain easy to build steamer and hv2 effects...

Anyway, thanks for your answer.
