I'd like to emphasize three points from that web page:

5) DiskWarrior 5.2 now runs within the macOS 10.14 Mojave Recovery environment.

6) The Preview application in DiskWarrior can now copy files to APFS disks when recovering data from a failing Mac OS Extended (HFS Plus) disk.

7) Numerous minor updates were made to accommodate additional security measures in macOS 10.14 Mojave.
I can also confirm it works great inside Mojave.

DW 5.2 rebuilds Time Machine when booted from DiskWarrior Recovery drive. It's a bit inconvenient...

Having difficulty installing this update...does anyone know if there's a direct download to the 5.0, 5.1, or 5.2 installer (that I can plug my serial into)?

Sadly the updater is what's causing me issues, though it accepts my serial number well enough. I'll contact their support.

When I tried applying the updater when 5.1 was released it had a error and my DW app would no longer work. Some other members suggested that the Alsoft server may have been too busy and resulted in a error that damaged the app and to wait to a later time. I restored the DW 5.0 version from my backup and then applied the 5.1 updater successfully at a later time.

EDIT: BTW, when I had my 5.1 problem I contacted Alsoft and got no response.

Hm, fair enough. I'm hoping to reinstall from scratch and am having difficulty initiating the download of the full installer, rather than just the updater. I forgot to archive when I had the chance.
