1. What have you installed on the computer between Windows and BW6?
2. Are the three computers, three separate installations, or are they just clones off a central installation source?
3. What programs/utilities are running in memory while BW6 is being run?
4. When the BibleWorks 6 splash screen goes away, is the BW60.exe process still running in memory, or has it been terminated?
- Corrupted Windows install due to bad install disc
- Corrupted BibleWorks 6 install due to bad install disc
- Corrupted BibleWorks 6 install due to third party element (virus, antivirus, spyware, antispyware. etc.)
- Third-party element causing BibleWorks to malfunction.
Possible Solutions (in order from quickest to longest):
1. I'm not completely sure about this, but I think you can try to copy the entire C:\Program Files\BibleWorks 6\ folder off a working computer and just copy the whole folder into the computer rather through the installation CD. There were a couple of programs I was surprised that worked this way; I can't remember but I think BibleWorks 6 was one of them. It's a cheap solution, but hey - if it works, it works.
2. You can try to disable all third party elements (e.g. antivirus, antispyware, registry tracker, etc.) before installing BW6 fresh.
3. You can try to uninstall all third party elements (e.g. antivirus, antispyware, registry tracker, etc.) before installing BW6 fresh.
4. You can try to reinstall windows fresh using a different install CD, and install BibleWorks 6 first, and verify that it works before installing anything else.
Other things you can try:
1. Try installing BW6 onto a completely separate computer using the install disc you have. If that install results in the same way, then it's most likely the disc.
2. Check the install discs for scratches, fingerprints, holes/flaking (on burned discs).
3. Get yourself a copy of BibleWorks 7.
