Hi Paolo great tutorials, I installed the Lux Render, I followed the instructions, but I clicked on Render and the selected Lux Render Exporter, and Lux Render launches, but then after following all the steps in the tutorial, and I click Render a message comes on saying, ERROR please specify default out directory in system tab prior to export to default lxs file, I tried making a link by going to going File and selecting Append or Link, but can't get the directory link, any help? thanks

That is the wrong option. You have click on the system tab in LuxBlend and the select where you want to write the Lux scene.
