Have you tried with a more recent Blender version? 2.7 is quite old.

By the way, unfortunately LuxBlend is no longer supported, we are writing a new addon, if you want to test it write a post here: viewtopic.php?f=12&t=13485
However the new addon requires the very latest Blender (2.79a release candidate).
