Hi everyone i just updated from lightwave 9.3.1 to 9.5 everything seems to be working fine but when i tried to get FiberFX help it wasn't there and then i tried to get the contents help from the file menu in modeler it wouldn't work i then checked the paths for these two files and it led me to the documentation folder which was empty? what i'm i doing wrong please help because i do rely a lot on the help content since i'm still fairly new to lightwave.

I don't see it either. I think the documentation is missing from the release.

i think you are right clintonman cause i checked in the "my downloads" section and i compared 9.3.1 which is 216 mb and 9.5 is only 99 mb. Anyone else with this problem out there i'd like to know about it.

Worst than that is that v9.3.1 creates an extra "Web Help" folder (files duplicated).
If you check, you'll find one "Web Help" folder inside the "Documentation" folder (as expected) and a second one outside (in Lightwave installation folder).
To compensate that HD space abuse, NT probably decided to give no more Web Help to v9.5. or we could end with a 3rd web help folder someplace else in the HD. (sarcasm)
Creppy... :confused:
