Hey, I'm trying to install our copy of Lightwave 8.5 on our G4 here at work, and though the installation seems to go fine, when I click either the modeler or the layout button they 'bounce' a couple of times as if they were going to start... and then don't. I usually use Windows myself, so I can't really think of how to troubleshoot this thing. Anybody have any ideas?

First thing I'd try is checking the disk permissions:

Launch /Applications/Utilities/Disk Utility
Choose your hard drive from the list
Click "Repair Disk Permissions"

Sometimes the permissions can get mucked up when you install something, which may cause the problems you are having.
