    Finally took the plunge

    Just now purchased the 9 pre-upgrade through Kurv store! Now, how long does it take to get the beta information and when and where can I download my CADTools? Also, anybody who's ordered through Kurve (thanks for the deal, Wes!), how long does it take for them to ship out Vue? I can't wait!

    - Thank you.

    Kurv good!

    I've ordered a bunch of videos and they were very prompt. I made mistake of
    ordering one I already had and they sent the replacement right away. I also
    ordered the upgrade from them and got access in short order to the CAD tools
    which are by the way a GREAT Deal!

    Sorry mav3rick - I was just excited about it and wondered if anybody had any experience and could offer an idea of timeframe before I got confirmation and could download the extra goodies. Didn't think it was an offensive post.

    I guess we could also ask the question of why we are interested in the fact you've seen a "t[h]ousand" threads.


    Congrats, maxx. You should be downloading the bonus stuff in no time.

    Well poop. I didn't realize that. That's ok - I have a feeling we may see a shipping 9.0 around NAB. Nothing to back that up, it just seems like as good a time as any...

    Which actually raises another question - Should I be expecting an e-mail with the LW product code or whatever to unlock my LWCad tools, or do I have to wait for the Vue disk to arrive via UPS then? I seem to remember someone from Newtek posting that - at one point - once you bought the upgrade, NT would e-mail your codes so you could get in on the beta and the beta forums and unlock LWCad before the Vue disk arrived. I may be remembering incorrectly, though... Either way, Vue should be here by Monday next week at the latest (I certainly hope), but I'd like to play with at least some of the new toys this weekend.

    cresshead - thanks for the link - is that applicable to US customers as well? Or am I just missing something? The sign-in for download page on NT US site has the link to the beta, but I've got to enter my 10 digit LW product code to actually download it, which is basically what I'm asking about here - should I be expecting an e-mail or do I have to wait for the disk to arrive?

    Actually that's not the case - as new purchasers buy LightWave 8.5 updates eligible for v9 free or buy v9 updates, we do provide them the opportunity to join the Open Beta.

    Rock on! So - not to be pushy - do I have to wait for the arrival of my Vue disk or will everything I need be e-mailed upon processing of the order? Which will hopefully happen soon

    Sorry about that I went off of what I read at first. I just reread that and found that I was wrong.
