View Full Version : Upgrade from LW 6?

11-13-2006, 01:59 PM
Been a while since I've posted here.

I just purchased a new Mac Pro. I have LW 6 with the Purple USB Rainbow dongle.

Since this version is way old and doesn't even work in OSX I just want to confirm if I can get the LW9 Upgrade with no problem?

IE Will this old dongle work etc in OSX with LW9 etc? Do I have to get the upgrade from Newtek or can I just get a regular upgrade pack from somewhere else (say Safe Harbor)?

One last thing. I also bought Sasquatch back then too. Does anyone know if that will work with LW9, my old dongle etc? I still have the serial for that.

Thanks for any help.

I would think so. You will probably need to update your dongle drivers. Sasquatch should work as well, it's just tied to the dongle ID number. I would call Newtek and get a definative answer first though.

I found my LW install (6.5, my CD is only 6, can't find the free 6.5 download anywhere) on my iBook. Moved it over to the Mac Pro, downloaded the latest Eve3 Dongle drivers and it worked.

So I'm guessing that means LW9 should work just fine then.

Yes you should have no problems running LightWave 9 on the USB dongle. And you can install and use 6.5 on OSX.
