View Full Version : LW stuck in Discovery Mode

02-22-2009, 10:37 AM

I am a registered lightwave v9 user. I am trying to upgrade to v9.6 Universal Binary for OSX. As I have done many times before I have copied the new registration number to my license.key file in the Library/Preferences/Lightwave3D folder. When I boot up modeler it will only start in Discovery Mode and tells me my license key could not be found. I found this odd considering I had no problems loading and using the 9.6 beta versions.

I am trying to figure out what I am missing here. Has the required location for the license.key file changed? Do I have to apply for a new permanent registration number with version 9.6? Is it something completely unrelated?

Thanks in advance

First, make sure the beta unlock codes are not in the same license.key file as the release version's unlock code. I'm not really sure if that would cause it, but I'd like to make sure it's not finding the beta key, and testing that instead of your final key, before I suggest anything else.
