View Full Version : Lightwave 64 and 32

Has anyone noticed problem's with running lightwave 64 and 32 on the same machine? Crashes, error's or such?

I'd like to in order to use some of the plugin's i had with Lightwave 32 but do the 2 version's of lightwave on the same machine conflict?

Works ok for me, I have 32 and 64 both on Vista ultimate. The only thing I have found is that they seem to be a bit slow recognising the dongle sometimes, if I close one and open the other quickly it sometimes goes into discovery mode. But that might just be a Vista thing.

I have Vista Ultimate x64 as well... 32/64 bit works very well, except that 64 bit LW have some minor display issues on the UI-side. I also noticed a slight speedgain using 32-bit LW on Vista x64 compared to WinXP when it comes to rendering.

Simon: Make sure you exit the HUB before launching the other version. To my knowledge, LW 32 tries to use LW 64 HUB and vice versa.
