Having Fits and Going Insane: Installing User Modules for BibleWorks 9 in Windows 7

Posted in media by Jim on August 11, 2011

Here’s the tale:

1- I downloaded a number of the cool user modules available for BibleWorks.  They’ve got some awesome free stuff.

2- I’ve followed the instructions for installation.

3-  Step 3 was a little confusing:

Step 3. Right click on the CHM file (it’ll look like all other HTML help icons), go to Properties and make sure the box for Block is unchecked.

4- Here’s a screenshot

5- So clicking on properties brings up this:

In Windows 7 there is no box to check or uncheck.  Rather, there’s a box to click and then one has to click ‘apply’ on the bottom right.  If one looks for a box with or without a checkmark in it one may well end in despair and insanity.

Other users of BibleWorks using Windows 7 may want to take note.  Just FYI.

    How about for us Native Mac Users? I have downloaded a couple of modules and can not figure out how to get them to work. Any thoughts? I have no box that I can check that says block
