Help With Zip File
I tried relentlessly to download the zip file but cannot get it to open in iZip, Stuffit or any other program. It constantly saves as an .exe file

and copy your ini to that folder.
Hope that works for you!
Elijah, if you copy the .exe file over the existing one in the BibleWorks 9 folder, does it work?

Thanks to Ben for this tip. After pondering the idea of setting up a USB drive with the DVD files and label name, it seems a better solution would be the Remote Disc feature that Apple supplies:

Hope that helps!
do i have to have BW9?
do i have to have BW 9 to install and run BW9 Mac Pub Preview? I bought a BW8 Windows few months before BW9 was released, and did not feel like springing for upgrade... am I stuck now? or can I preview the new version as well?

Implications for Crossover on Linux?
I'm thrilled to hear that BW will be supporting BW on Mac using Crossover/WINE. This is not because I'm a Mac user, but a Linux user who has been running BW under WINE for years It's always worked, and worked pretty well, but a number of features have been unavailable using WINE. I'm really hoping that since BW will be developed for Mac using Crossover/WINE that this will have some implications for running BW under Linux using Crossover. I would think that if you're going to put the work into getting BW running well under Crossover for Mac, that this would mean most (or all) of these benefits would manifest themselves for those trying to run BW under Linux. I realize that you will probably not release an official Linux version using Crossover, but I think it would be really great if better Linux compatibility showed up as a side effect of tweaking BW to run on Mac via Crossover/WINE. Can anyone confirm?
