You can read what I am talking about in a thread I posted earlier here:

Everything worked after what I did in the above mentioned thread, but it was still annoying me that properties displayed these icons showing with unknown app.

What I have now done is rename the Modeler and Lightwave within the new LW8 directory. I named them LW8 and Modeler 8.

Now there is no issue and all LWO and LWS files open with 8 via the double-click on their appropriate icons. The icons also now display the new bluish and purplish LW logo swirlie and properties shows them actually linked to LW8.

This is just a heads up for others who may be encountering this issue and found it mildly annoying. Then again, maybe it is just me.
I am on Win XP Pro with AMD Athlon 64 3400+ for whatever it is worth.
