    What is a "windows" folder? for NRC

    What is a "windows" folder? What does that mean? Has any other user got NRC working?

    You will need to either setup a "windows" folder -or change the pathing -

    it's in the docs -

    It means that for the sake of having heterogeneous render environments (a mix of Macs and PCs working on renders) you need to have two folder structures - one for Mac, one for Windows - like so:

    Code:
    config
      osx
        the contents of your osx ~/NewTek/LightWave/<version> folder
      windows
        the contents of your user\NewTek\LightWave\<version> folder
    plugins
      osx
        the entire LightWave support folder if you can't be bothered to get just the bits you need
      windows
        the entire LightWave support folder if you can't be bothered to get just the bits you need
    in each case, the paths used should be network accessible UNC paths, so not:

    c:\NewTek\LightWave...

    but

    \\<machine>\c\NewTek\LightWave

    (for PC and similar for Mac)
