It just starts normally, Eberhard. No error messages, it just opens the
normal e-Sword application. All the Bibles show with their abbreviated
acronyms. I click on the Bible of choice and nothing happens. Usually
if you highlight, for instance Genesis, then a chapter, it opens to the
first verse of the chapter. Instantly the words come on the page. Now
it stays blank.
They install KJV+ on installation, so I made sure to put the bbl files
in the folder that contained the KJV+ bbl. It should have worked. It
always has before. In fact when I installed it on my 32bit version of
Intrepid, the whole thing took just a few minutes. When I first opened
the program, it worked perfectly. This is the 5th installation I have
made since Feisty, so I am pretty sure I did things right. Back in the
Feisty and Gutsy versions, you had to install a cab file and a couple of
dll's, that is why I thought maybe that might be the problem. The fact
that are no error messages is the reason I brought it to the List. I
was suspicious it was either a 64bit bug or something like that.
The way you had me open the program, it opened the same as when I open
it using the direct e-Sword open. I am at a loss.
