My students have already installed BW9 using the new Mac installer, and everything seems to be working well.

Now Iím trying to show them how to install user created versions in BW. (The versions on this page: http://bibleworks.oldinthenew.org/?page_id=138 or the modules on this page: http://bibleworks.oldinthenew.org/?page_id=151)

I work totally with Windows, and I cannot figure out how to do this on a Mac. (I can't even find how to get to the databases subdirectory where most stuff needs to go.)


Is it possible to add versions or modules to a Mac installation?
If so, can anyone provide step-by-step directions on how to do this?
Are there any issues they should be aware of? (E.g., on Windows, the CHM files need to be "unblocked" in order to run.)


Thank you very much for any guidance!

Mark, we'll be adding more to the Mac Installer in the days to come, Lord willing. Here are the answers to your questions:

Is it possible to add versions or modules to a Mac installation?

Yes. Just open a Finder window, click the Go menu item, hold down the Option key, and then select Library. Navigate to Application Support | BibleWorks | Bottles | bibleworks | drive_c | Program Files | BibleWorks 9. Now you are at the installation's BibleWorks folder. You can copy files here just as you would on a Windows installation. If you have a Windows EXE you want to run, put the file in a known location and then, with BibleWorks running, run you EXE from the main menu with File | Run Command. In the Run Command window, click Browse and go to the folder with your DVD files.

Nope! Not that I can think of.


Hope that helps!
