Databases Removed from BibleWorks 10

Occasionally items are removed from BibleWorks, either because they have become obsolete or because we were unable to renew licenses at rates that are fair to our users. In challenging economic times all licensors understandably need to maximize income. However, we do not as a rule pass along increases to users. The price of BibleWorks must be kept affordable. This means unfortunately that on occasion some items must be dropped or, in a few cases, turned into extra cost add-ons. Items removed from the BibleWorks base package in BibleWorks 10 are as follows:

  • Theological Wordbook of the Old Testament, Harris, et als
  • Moody Bible Atlas, Beizel
  • CNS Romanian Bible (The Bible version named CNS was incorrectly identified in earlier BibleWorks versions. )
  • French Jerusalem Bible (FBJ) (We will restore this version if certain copyright issues can be resolved.)
  • Afrikaans versions A83 and AFR
  • WHO (Wescott and Hort NT) and SCO (obsoleted by newly proofed texts WHT and SCR)

If you are upgrading from BibleWorks 9 you will be sent free of charge a UP09 activation code that installs these items (except for CNS, WHO, and SCO) free of charge. They will not be available to new purchasers of BibleWorks 10.

Upgraders from BW7 and before (as well as those, as mentioned, from BW8 and BW9) will also be sent module codes for texts that were in their versions but which don’t appear in BW10.

Upgrading from Versions Prior to BibleWorks 9

As of June 30, 2013 the German Lutherbibel 1984 is again included in BibleWorks 9 and 10. Prior to that date, it was only available to upgrading BibleWorks 9 users with an activation code. No code is needed for that version to be installed in BibleWorks 10.
