    Stephanus, are you running under German XP?

    Stephanus,

    What I recommend is reverting to an earlier version and then rerunning the updater. WE were messing yesterday with some XP security issues and you may not have the final fix. We have tried unsuccessfully to reproduce this problem but do not have s system running German XP.

    If any of you have run the latest update (8.0.015i) successfully on XP please let me know. If there is a remaining issue here we'll get on it immediately.

    Mike

    Wow, that's weird. I see from your post, Mike, that the latest version of the program executable is 8.0.015i. I open up BW8 everyday and the automatic updater has not prompted me to update in a while. I am currently running 8.0.015e.1. Am I lagging behind? I'm a little wary of running a manual update with all of the recent chatter about the program "crashing." I am still on Windows XP. Any suggestions? Thanks.

    Default Another German not able to run BibleWorks anymore

    I don't know whether I'm having the same problem as Stephanus, but BibleWorks doesn't work for me anymore either. After applying the most recent update (i), BibleWorks shut down and upon restarting I got the message that "bwbits80.dll" is missing. It's not missing though: it's both in the program folder as well as in the system folder. However, I'm not able to launch BibleWorks anymore. When trying, I get a message telling me that the file can't be accessed and that I might not have the required rights to do so. I get the same message when trying to run "Reconfigure or Uninstall BibleWorks" or even just try to open any of the folders in the program folder.
    I had exactly the same problem after applying one of the previous exe-updates (e). At that time I was about to reinstall Windows anyhow. So I did and after installing BibleWorks, a new patch was available (f). With that one (and the two ones after that) everything worked fine.
    I'm running BibleWorks on Windows XP Professional. My account is the only user account and I'm the computer administrator. And I'm German. Maybe that's the problem ...

    That is exactly my problem. Markusw described it very well. It is not possible to do anything with bibleworks or in the bibleworks 8 folder.

    Mike,

    I had the same problem Markus explained running BW8 under Win XP Pro SP3 (Spanish) even though I had Administrator rights (and no remote user). I spent a whole afternoon trying to solve the problem on my own. Here's what I did:

    Start - Control Panel - Folder Options - View tab - uncheck Use Simple File Sharing (last checkbox).

    After doing that I could right-click on folders and files and use the Security tab and the Advanced Options for permissions.

    I made sure I had total control of all the files in BW's directory and then I was able to update. It was a very unpleasant experience, but I am now running 8.0.015j.1 without any noticeable problem.

    For the record, my other BW8 installation on a virtual machine with an English copy of Win XP Pro SP3 did not have any of the problems described in this thread.

    Hope this helps.
