Thread: Where is the lightwave download?

  1. #1

    Where is the lightwave download?

    I am trying to reinstall Lightwave on my computer.
    After reformatting and reinstalling everything, Lightwave still crashes. Sentinel drivers are working ok, since it gets past the part where it tells you about demo mode. But Lightwave crashes right after loading.

    I am thinking maybe there is a problem with my installation CD.
    So I would like to install from downloads only. The problem is, I can't figure out which download has the install of Lightwave and is not just a patch.

    Tried the 7.5 update, and it told me that I had to have lightwave installed already. Same with 7.5c

    Do I have to get a new disc from NewTek? Or is there something I am missing?

    all the updates are the full version of LightWave as far as I know (program only - no content)

    Hi Jockomo,

    Have you got the latest video card drivers? Sometimes if LW cannot make an OGL environment it will crash.

    Maybe if you just reinstalled everything you may have early drivers which don't work too well.

    Hope that helps.
    Remember! - It isn't the fall that hurts, but the sudden stop at the bottom!

    Yep, that's what it was. Old OGL drivers. Thanks!
