View Full Version : Installation on new PC :(

Hi, All

I've just purchased myself a new PC and have installed Lightwave v8 on it, however when I go to upgrade to v8.5 I tells me I can't because the dongle is not detected. It's plugged in and appears to be OK.

Any suggestions appreciated : )

Thay's because you need to either install 8.3 first - part of it includes new dongle drivers -or install the new dongle drivers solo - there are few threads in the forums about finding the drivers and downloading them.

Personally I think NewTek dropped the ball by not including the new drivers with 8.5.

Although they may have included them on th e 8.5 cd. Last time I looked they weren't on the downloads page.
