Thread: Separate Mac User Profile

  1. #1

    Default Separate Mac User Profile

    Hey All,

    My wife uses my MacBook Pro (OS X 10.11.6) with a separate user profile. I can't get BibleWorks (MCW 10-30) to run on her profile. Everything runs great on mine.

    Is there a setting I need to adjust, either in the System Pref or in BW itself?

    ** UPDATE **

    Actually, I see now that it asks me to 'Install/Reconfigure' BibleWorks on that profile. So, 1) Do I really have a separate install on this profile? 2) It's asking what directory the BW install disc is in. Should I have access to the right directory, if it's all on my other profile?

    Unfortunately, at this point you do have to reinstall a separate copy of BW for each user. The limitation has to do with BibleWorks in-program updater. We will look at ways to make this work around this limitation, but until then a second installation would be needed for a second user on the same machine.

    Thanks for the note. It's not really a problem, I just needed to know what I needed to do, and to make sure I wasn't going to break it on my profile if I loaded it again on hers.
