    Our Apologies - Mac 7.5b Withdrawn

    A Note to Our Valued Mac LightWave Customers: We have confirmed that there are issues that we need to correct with the Mac version of the 7.5b update, and we are removing the current version from our download areas. We will correct the issues as rapidly as possible, and will post the corrected files for download. Our apologies for any inconvenience.

    Thank you for your patience!

    I may be wrong, but I imagine that when the 'fixed' LW7.5B is released that users will have to remove their existing copy of Lighwave and reinstall from LW7.0.
    Moral of the day:
    Worry about your own morals, not someone else's!

    Question

    Will we be able to install over the existing 7.5b version? Or do we have to reinstall the entire 7.5 before installing the new upgrade?

    I won't know that for sure until we are at the point where the new installer has been built, but traditionally our patch installers are meant to place files in an existing folder, without the need to remove or re-install an older version.

    Yes, please take the time to do it right. However, the PC version seems to be working for me. Thank goodness for the Duo. Hey, here's a bad joke-

    A: A backup PC.
