View Full Version : Lightwave 9.2 demo locks up, won't run

Hi - I downloaded and registered the lightwave 9.2 demo, entering the license key, but it won't run - it locks up after I click 'continue' - any help?

I downloaded/ran the latest sentinel drivers, and tried renaming the hub.exe file in case that was it, and renamed cfg files too, but the program won't run, either.

I can't buy lightwave and/or 3da if I can't get the demo version running.

I'm running a winXP dualcore 6600 system w/ATI Radeon X1950 pro cards and 4 gigs ram.

Thanks!

You don't need sentinel drivers or a license key to use the demo.

To disable the hub, edit your shortcut to modeler and layout and add a -0 to the end. That's a zero, not the letter O.

contact Newtek on their 800 number- I'm sure they would not want to miss a sale because of their demo not working.

The demo DOES work, I have it on my machine here at work. The problem is going to be with the machine.

When I delete/rename the license.key file, it loads up fine, in discovery mode..

I correctly emailed in and got a trial license number etc, put it in that file, but it locks on startup.

Any ideas?

thx!
