Have now tried most of the install variations.  I ended up reinstalling the
architectural program and leaving the 3.5 installed in that directory, then I
reinstalled the 3.7 win. 7, 64 bit in the default directory.  Where it wanted to
be was in C:\user\ahed\documents\PovRay\3.7.  Both work separately, so what line
can I change in the 3.5 Pvengine.ini file so it will chose the 3.7 over 3.5.

Thanks for helping me out
