Ok folks, I am having some serious issues with Lightwave. Once again, my plugins are failing to load. So I go an look into the Lightwave directory and the plugins folder is gone! What's going on here? I think I found a correlation with it. Last time this happened, I let my license.key file expire before I put it in. And since I recently reinstalled it because my plugin directory went awol I had the window to put in the license key again. Not having the key with me, I let it expire and now that I have it, it destroyed my plugins folder again!!!

I am the only one that uses or even touches this PC so I know it wasn't erased.

If it's xp machine, and you did system restore at some time - that could have messed up the registry...

No, it's windows 2000. And the directory is gone. As in no folder called Plugins inside the Lightwave folder.

Anything else missing? There have been some viruses that delete random files from a machine. Not sure if the current Blaster worm is one of them. I really hope this isn't your problem.

Some of my Lscripts were missing too. But there is not viruses on the system, that is checked and current.

Recent LW upgrade install packages wipe and re-write plugin and preset directories.
Back them up. You know it makes sense.
