I run LW 9.0, 9.31 and 9.5 on the same PC, all you do is alter your config line in your shortcut.
G:\Lightwave_9-5\Programs\lightwav.exe -pG:\Lightwave_9-5\Configs -cG:\Lightwave_9-5\Configs

G:\Lightwave_931\Programs\lightwav.exe -pG:\Lightwave_931\Configs -cG:\Lightwave_931\Configs

Would be two shortcut paths for Layout in 931 and 95 - with similar for the Modeller exe file.

Hi colkai,

I thank you very much for your post, I am not an expert at LightWave…
What config line do I have to alter, where can I find that shortcut thingie?

Create a shortcut on your desktop. Rightclick it, "Properties".

Under the Shortcut tab, you should edit the "Target" line.
