I just bought a new MAC ( G5 2x2,6 dual core 3Go RAM and OS X 10.5.2),
and i had downloaded the 9.3.1 UB for this kind of machine.
I can't run LW in FULL mode (in MODELER or LAYOUT)?the message still remain the same " no licence key found , run in demo mode".
I am a registed user , and in the LW folder i can't find the REGISTER tool to create a new licence key.
On a G4 ,in PPC version it is the program folder,but in Ub i can't find it.
Does anyone can help me?
Thank you. Ps (sorry for my english !!!)

If you have LW installed on another machine you could try copying your license.key file that has your serial number into your 9.3.1 folder.

Thanks BigHache but i have tried this solution , but LW won't accept the file
(licence key ) from my G4 .

This should work as I have done this on same type of machine. Make sure it is in "SharedSupport" inside the "LightWave3D 9" folder.

Ok GLEN , that's right,i know now the exact location of the LK .
I test it and it's good.But meanwhile,i have re-installed a PPC 9.3.1 whith my ancient V9 LK and LW seems to work Ok, maybe a little bit slower than UB but now i have two solutions for work
THANKS a lot everybody.

The easiest way to do this is use the Enter License Key item in the Help menu, in Layout. It will put it in the right location.

HI MJML,
enter your license key in the MacOSX Universal Binary version of LightWave is to open Layout, and choose the 'Enter License Key' item in the MacOS Menubar. In the window that appears next, enter your license key. Quit Layout and restart it, and you're done.
