Default Getting DWedit to work with steam version

I've been trying to get DWEdit to work, but had error messages and no 3d view of objects etc.

I searched for a while and found some very old posts by people with similar problems and a solution posted up by Ludgar about registry entries etc. But it didn't work for me. After a bit of guess work I found that for my OS "win7 64", you need to create a the registry entries in the WOW6432NODE in HKEY LOCAL > SOFTWARE.

i.e something akin to as shown below:- but this will need tuning for your individual install directories etc. This might also apply to Win8 and Win10 64bits, but I'm not sure how they deal with 32bit app registers.

Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\WOW6432NODE\Sonalysts Combat Simulations]

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\WOW6432NODE\Sonalysts Combat Simulations\Dangerous Waters]
