    In the old days yes key was called "license.key" and not license.lwk as now.
    Mine in LW 9.6 is also inside of programs folder of LW installation so not sure why is not working for you now when dongle is safely installed and not recognized as other device.

    Is LW 9.6.1 still running now?

    There are other topics in the forum where recent Win10 updates have broken things. My personal experience using old LW4 and 7 in Win10 was confirmed a few months ago. I have not tested recently.

    Thanks to Deuce in Customer Support, we determined that I did need a new license key, but not for the reason I was expecting. Anyway, it's been taken care of, and LightWave 9.6.1 now starts in regular mode. I haven't really done anything with it yet, but at least it starts!

    Thanks to Deuce, and to everyone who gave input and feedback on this thread.
