Is it possible to install BW 7 (a MINIMAL installation) in a USB pendrive (4 Gb) or a DVD and run the program from it in another PC? Thanks.

I run Bibleworks off of a 8gb USB flash drive, but I have not attempted to boot it when attache to a machine other than the one I installed it on. I think it will work though. Clay

You asked about being able to run Bibleworks 7 from a usb drive on various computers. Once you purchase it, and install it here is what you can do:
You can take the main Bibleworks7 directory and just copy it to any usb drive or any folder on another computer. Each time you copy it - you MUST DELETE these files:
bw7dir.ini These should do it...but if not...repeat and also delete these:
This way these files simply get rebuilt and corrected to reflect whatever directory you are using. This must be done because if you move it and don't delete these files, Bibleworks will think it's in the original install directory and fail.
Here are the contents of the bw700.ini:
I think...if you copy it from and to an exactly same name directory, and start BW7 from this similarly named directory - such as:
you don't need to even delete the ini files....I think. But the former definitely works.
I do not think this works, however, with Bibleworks8. Bibleworks is the most fantastic piece of software on the planet and worth every single penny :-)
