I don't know about anyone else, but the archive on here for 6.5 doesn't seem to work. Says something is missing when you run it.

Well if the comments left by Kitchen2010 on the LW 6.5 page are anything to go by, then I'd say yes, its incomplete and needs fixing.

I don't know if I'm relieved that I was right, or disappointed that it's broke :-/

Be relieved that you're not alone Wink

I'll put a "heads up" in the page so others don't get sucked into wasting their time on it until it gets fixed (if ever).

In order to make that work you need he full image at the time of installation. I went through this all the way to version 7 or 7.5 then i reached the end.

You can force the installer to work if you create the "Plugins" folder in the desired installation folder before running the installer. For exaplme you with to install into "HardDrive:Newtek", so in the root of your HardDrive you need to create "Newtek" folder and inside it "Plugins" folder. Then the installer should work. It will rename your newly created folder to "Plugins(old)". Stupid VISE installer =)))

@asp_id: Thanks for this post. It helped me a lot in working out what to do. If you install the 5.5 (included) full install set, it creates the necessary NewTek and Plugins folder plus all of the files that have to be updated, then running the 6.5 updater overwrites the 5.5 files and installs the updated 6.5 versions of the software. Running the 6.5 [k] patches after this completes the install and it runs great. (I've revised this info on the app's DL page).

I own 8 for the PC, but I'd love to have it for my Mac, it would be nice to work on some of my models using my B/W. I dont think you can buy old copies of Lw, just the latest version. I was lucky getting 8 boxed for my PC.
