I bought Lightwave 8 while back, when it was bundled with Vue5.
Only touched Lightwave couple of times, busy enjoying Vue (when it doesn't bug :D )
My health's very bad so , trying to learn Lightwave and Vue = no no, at that time.

So, couple of years later...got new system, health's bit better, and getting stuck back into art.
I'd like to re-install, Lightwave on this new system (64 bit Vista).
I downloaded the v9 upgrade when it came out (as it was in the "version change over time", if know what I mean).

Now, being a clueless noob, should I contact Newtek Europe and ask for 64 bit v9?
Do I need new dongle or any such?

Thanks for any help! :help:

LW 64bit comes free with LW9, sorry I don't know if there's a dongle issue.

Go to the registration page ( http://register.newtek.com/register.aspx ), log in and then go to the downloads page, it should be there, that'll get you started

It's DuoDongle (purple one probably?) and it works on PC and MAC and you can use 64bit and 32bit. You just need to register 64bit version ALSO since license Key is different for 64bit version than for 32bit and of course install them both on your system and you can use them wiht same dongle.

cheers and welcome back to LightWave :D
