BibleWorks natively on a Mac

Wednesday, October 3rd, 2012

BibleWorks just announced that they have made enough progress to release a preview edition of BibleWorks 9 that works natively on a Mac. As a preview version, it’s not yet perfected, but they believed it’s in good enough shape that it will work smoothly for 95% of their users. There is no additional cost, but it will require you to have an up-to-date DVD version of BW9 to install it. If you do not have an up-to-date DVD, you will have to purchase a copy of the DVD ($25), but you still use your original registration info when installing.

This is a new move on the part of BibleWorks that further enhances Mac support. Previously one could run BibleWorks on Mac either through Boot Camp or a virtualization program. This will now enable users to run BibleWorks with no other software downloads (not Windows and not any virtualization programs).

You can read more about it on the official BibleWorks website.

BibleWorks Modules in Mac

Wednesday, December 9th, 2009

A call for help to other BibleWorks users:

On our modules page, Mark Hoffman asks,

I’m using a Win machine, but I have students with Macs running BW8 under emulation. When they can’t get the modules to work, I’m clueless.
Can someone please give some Mac-specific step-by-step directions for adding modules? Thanks.

I also run BibleWorks on a Windows machine, so I can’t provide much guidance, but does anyone else who runs BibleWorks via Mac emulators have any experience with this issue?

Questions of clarification to Mark: (A) Do any modules work (including the base ones in BibleWorks) or is this just the ones students download here that don’t work? (B) What combination of Windows version and emulator are the students using?
