Lightwave 9 Modeler keeps crashing on me...even after a fresh install. Any ideas?

Here is the information from the error message:
AppName: modeler.exe AppVer: 0.0.0.0 ModName: lwtools9.dll
ModVer: 0.0.0.0 Offset: 00025ce3

In addition when the LW install prog tries to install the Sentinel drivers I get this message:

There are no old or new Sentinel drivers installed of course, at least not according the the Add/Remove programs menu. The computer seems to think there are however. How do I wipe my system free of previous Sentinel drivers in preparation for a clean install of LW9?

When I installed version 9 (up from 8.5) the program automatically uninstalled the older Sentinel Driver, then installed the new one; without any problems. I'm not sure about your situation though.

Ooof. How about you grab Crap Cleaner ( http://www.ccleaner.com ) and see if it's built in Uninstall tool can do root-canal on your old dongle drivers? Then swag the latest ones of the web. ( http://www.safenet-inc.com/support/tech/sentinel.asp )

Funny you should mention crap cleaner. I happened to discover that utility just yesterday. Unfortunately it didn't fix my problem. I'm afraid I'm going to have to reformat and reinstall. It's been a couple of years anyway...my system could use it.
