Originally I bought Lightwave 8.5 while I was in college (which im still in) which came with a free upgrade to 9 (which it was previously upgraded to), recently my complete system went through a hard disk falure. I reinstalled OSX 10.4 on a brand new Hard disk. Now I log onto newtek's product downloads only to find that 9.3 doesnt have any registration system for the powerPC version, it's shortcut links directly to nothing and now im stuck with Lightwave 8.5 because my upgrade was internet based. :confused: So im not sure what to do. contact newtek? or is there some other way I can get to use lightwave 9 again. I tried the UB version and tried to register the product key under help which lead me to an error. Can someone please help me?

PROBLEM SOLVED!: nevermind, didn't see 9.3 Discussion form which explained PPC key entry was under programs>license.key. I opened it in the text program and replaced the original beta 9 serial with the offical product key I got from newtek
