View Full Version : BW6 and Ubuntu Edgy

02-03-2007, 02:45 PM
Hi, I moved to Ubuntu Dapper last summer, and have since upgraded to Edgy. I've been using Bible Works 6 for over a year now, and would really like to use it in Ubuntu... however, the installation gets to 100% under Wine, when it says "Setting up Bible Works as an automated server" and then fails with some kind of exception (an 8-byte Hex number).

I've searched the forums, and it's great to see that BW7 works for people in Ubuntu, but I can't afford to upgrade. Has anyone come across this problem before, is there any way around it? It's a shame the whole installation process works, but fails at the very end (and before you ask, no, I can't find the executable under ~/.wine/c/Program Files/BibleWorks to test it anyway).

If anyone can help I'll be very grateful!

Just found the other thread on BibleWorks and Linux (I had read it before!)... but I guess it makes more sense to post this there... so please forgive me for cross posting, and ignore this message.
