I know how you feel. If getting Lightwave 7.5 is a really big issue, you (could im not recomending this) get a pirate copy until you can afford the whole thing. Otherwise look for a second hand version going cheap. I think there is one in the forums at the bottom \/

How come you didn't download the free 5.6 upgrade?
(It was free, wasn't it)

Hello,
I am not an expert on this domain, but I think that if you own a legal licence of LW, you could try to contact Newtek and ask to send you another CD. In any case, what you did buy is the licence to USE it, not the CD itself.
Two years ago my dongle did stop wornking..I have then contacted the support and they sent me back another dongle...

Once reistalled your licence, then upgrade to the version 5.6 (I think it was free from LW 5.5..).
I am using LW 7.5 now, but, believe it or not, I really miss some features of the old version...

Cheers


Julius

What do you mean by "messed up?"

Uhhh huh... When I lay out major bucks for something like LightWave, it gets a special seat in my truck, right next to me, when I move! Losing the box would not prevent you from getting an upgrade, especially a free download. The only reason I can think not to download a free upgrade is it might break the crack on your current executable.

Hehe! :D I would go along with that last comment, but if he is using cracked software he would surely have 7.x by now as it is available everywhere! And is that a real tatoo, because I remember reading about a guy who had the XSI logo put on his arm!
