Also Does Newtek still offer any downloads for lightwave 9.6 such as fixes to it? I found my main copy of the update, but If there were any fixes after it, I do not have them now that I changed out my old hard drive.
Currently, 9.6 is the most up-to-date version. A patch - 9.6.1 is being worked on and should be available "relatively" soon. But I believe that all of the 9.x versions are available in the Registration areas. You'll be able to download what you need once the page is working again.
