I'm running the education version of Lightwave. It's version 7.5b.
On a Mac G4 933Mghz on Mac OS 10.1.5.

Whenever I fire-up the program, I constantly have to go and scan my plug-ins so Lightwave knows that they're there. EVERYTIME I start up the program it's like going out to your car and forgetting your car keys and having to go back in the house to fetch them.
This is very annoying for such an otherwise buttkicking piece of software.
Plug-in management has always seemed to have been a bane of this program.
Any thoughts on this? Am I being too anal about this? Why, why, why?

I'm not sure about your problem.

But after you scan your plugins, make sure you quit out of all LW APPS. Hub included.

You need to do this becuase if LW crashes during your session it will loose your current configs.

I think I've seen this before, the answer might be to check the permissions of your pref files, sometimes (like after a fresh install) they are read-only, they need to be read-write

I'm sure Toby is right. I've heard Beamtracer taking about this
