I recently bought the Inside Lightwave 7 book only to find that the disk seems to be unreadable. I was able to install the Lightwave demo and I tried to open the first scene with the 2 cds and I get a "Cant find Objects/Chapter2/LW_CD_Set.Lwo"
Select another file. Does anyone have any suggestions?

I really want to get started!!!!! Please Help!!!!!!

It should be in [CD]:\projects\objects\chapter2...

I do get the file from cd\projects\objects\chapter2..

But I still get that strange error. I did think it was funny that is was grabbing it from were it did.

It could be defined as such in the scene file (LWS)...

It often happens with scenes you might download, it may not find its objects or textures, so tell lightwave where to look....

Have fun!

It says in the book to open the cd.lws scene file so when I do that I go to the cd:\projects\scenes\chapter2\cd.lws
And then I get that error I told you about earlier.

Copy the project folder off of the CD and into your Lightwave folder. And then once you load lightwave press "o" (brings up the general options) and set your content directory to C:\WhereverYouPutLightwave\Projects. And it shouldn't give you that error (at least that worked for me).
Hope this helps
