After installing 9.2 on my system 8.5 kept freezing during startup. The only way I found for it to work was adding "-0" to the shortcut. That allows me to start 8.5 up, however not having the Hub is very annoying. Is there a fix so that they both run normally? I have also tried redirecting my config files to other folders with no luck.

I need to have 8.5 and 9.2 installed b/c I need to test files in older versions of LW. Any help would be great.

Did you install the latest sentinel dongle drivers? The older drivers could be hosing things up somehow.

Yeah, I have the newest version of the sentinal drivers installed. It seems to be a problem with the Hub, since everything will start up just fine once I disable the 8.5 Hub. Also, everything in 9.2 runs just fine. Both were clean installs, starting with 8.5 then 9.2. Both are saved to their own directories inside the Newtek Folder.

try deleting the configs for lw8, then start lw, scan for plugins, quit, write protect the lwhub config.
