    Hi Nicolas !

    Thanks for pointing to this video !

    I already watched this and tried the options.

    It seams the whole licensing system and serial numbers have changed.
    Maybe the database is not correctly updated:

    Viktor just replied to my support e-mail and stated I have licenses for LWCAD 3 and 4 and must buy an update.
    This is very strange sicnce I bought a full license of LWCAD 5 in February 2017 and worked with LWCAD 5.2 until today.

    I also had a license of version 1 and 2 back in 2006 . . . ;-)
    So maybe something happend to the license database . . . ?
    I have valid LWCAD licenses 1, 2 and 5 but not versions 3 or 4 . . .

    Also I did not get an e-mail concerning the 5.5 update as a LWCAD 5 license holder . . .
    ''LWCAD 5.5 is a free upgrade for all Version 5 licensed users. (5.0, 5.1, 5.2)''

    I wrote back to Viktor and hope he can sort this out.

    I really enjoyed modelling with LWCAD 5.2 and would like to use the 5.5 update . . .

    Regards,

    Marcus

    You have to log into the new LWcad site and choose transfer license . This will move it over to the new account type. Yeah i was kind of confused at 1st, lets say about 2 hours .

    Interesting that it says the next major upgrade for the Lightwave version is LWCAD18, expected in March 2018.

    Hi !
    Yes - I was confused too and then chose transfer license.
    From WTools3d.com to LWCAD.com website . . .
    So in the LWCAD.com account there is a new serial number and an Activation Key.
    Support / My licenses

    Downloaded and installed LWCAD 5.5
    e-mail address and new serial entered.
    Activation failed.
    Activated seats 1/1 . . .

    Fine it worked in your case :-)

    That 1/1 activated worries me . I hope this doesn't mean i can't jump over on to my laptop and now lwcad will not work.
    I had uninstall 5.2 using the 5.2 exe for it to work and then 5.5 install

    Okay ...
    Tried 5.2 uninsatall and 5.5 install.
    Still the same problem.

    Good comment on second install on laptop.
    I also use Lightwave and its plug-ins on my workstation and sometimes on my notebook.
    So a second install with the same license is also important.

    I hope to get the first install fixed soon . . .
    Awaiting Viktors solution.

    He completely redid his database and website. Notice that it is no longer wtools3d.com but now lwcad.com. The first thing you need to do is transfer your license using the link in the e-mail (this puts it into his new system) then download and install and follow the prompts for activation. Takes all of 5 minutes.

    Interesting. Maybe Viktor's server is overwhelmed with interest in the new release. My transfer attempts timed out and now it doesn't even ask, just sends me to the login page where it fails with invalid license or times out again if I try the don't know link. Can't even use the ask a question form, also times out.

    Sent him a direct email to his previous address, hopefully that's still good.

    Does victor not own it anymore.
    He does, he just moved thing to a new site. Since LWCAD now works for 3ds Max & C4D also. Which is a smart move by him.

    I just got my LWCAD 5.5 update from 5.2. The license transfer went brilliantly well and I was also able install with ease.

    Viktor is king!!!
    I'm always 100% right!!!

    Anyone here know if we can still use previous versions of Lightwave CAD after the license transfer?

    I'm assuming that after the license transfer to the new site the old license will still remain active for older versions?

    Hi Nicolas !
    I just uninstalled LWCAD 5.5 since activation still fails.
    So I installed LWCAD 5.2 again and it works like before - so at the moment it seems to work with older versions.
