Are you running Windows XP or Vista?

CUS and CU5 are for Vista only. If you downloaded the wrong database, it will not work on your computer.
In order to see if you downloaded the correct version, at the top of the browse window you can click on the arrow to the right of the little window where the search version abbreviation is displayed (for example: BGT). A dropdown list will show all the versions which you have installed. Look to see if CUS, CU5, CUSX or CU5X is there.
Crash on running the updates
Hi, I just bought a new machine and it's running on Vista 32-bit. I installed BW 7.0 uneventfully. Then I did the updates, and apparently, it downloaded all the files successfully, but when it's trying to install them, it failed on certain items (couldn't remember which, but it said something like could not find certain files). And then at one point, the updating process crashed, the same happened on the next few tries. The other thing is, I've downloaded the Chinese bibles (CU5 & CUS) and I "believed" they were installed successfully (as I could no longer find these updates), but in the program, I don't see them in the version dropdown list. Any help is appreciated.

At one time we had to download just the executable update first, before BW could handle the rest of the downloaded updates.

1) delete BW7, 2) reinstall BW7, then 3) download just the BibleWorks executable patch (currently rev1_exe_release_7019e), and then after BW restarts 4) download the rest of the patches.
Or, to save download time, using "My Computer" before delting BW you could locate the BibleWorks 7 "applied" patches folder, save it somewhere outside of the BW7 folder, and after doing steps 1-3 above, paste the full applied patches folder back into the BW7 patches folder, then do step 4, but be sure that on the "Install Updates" window you check the "Options" "Show downloaded patches" and check all of them (except the 3 patches for XP Arabic and Chinese versions). This will not actually download the patches, but will apply the patches from your saved file.
I hope this helps.

BW7 reads Chinese search as strange codes
I use Vista Home Basic and BW7 and I have CU5 & CUS successfully installed. I set CU5 as the seach version and typed Chinese in the search command line but BW7 recognized the Chinese as strange codes and says:
The following word or form cannot be found in the current search version:
I can see the Chinese characters in the command line.
Can you tell me how to resolve this problem?
BibleWorks 7 can display Unicode fonts, but it does not use Unicode internally. So, you can search the Chinese versions by right-clicking on a word or phrase and searching for it, but you cannot search by typing those characters on the command line, because the BibleWorks 7 search engine does not recognize the Unicode character map. Sorry.
I use Windows XP, not Vista, but BW8 also does not handle Chinese charcters typed onto the command line for me. At least I have not been able to figure out the proper keystrokes to get Chinese characters to display, even using the PRC Chinese settings for Windows. So you can do something in Vista which I cannot do in XP.
BW7 reads Chinese search as strange codes
I tried to search by right clicking word/phrase in CU5 but BW7 still read my search as strange codes and the same error message appeared.
I used XP before and I could search CU5X in BW7 by typing Chinese in the command line without any problems. Although I can use online Chinese bible to do the same thing, I'm still disappointed that I can't search Chinese bible in BW7.
