A Quick update on my end: The dictionary came in and works fine on the Mac version of BW10 that I have on my MacBook Pro. However, on my windows version, I still have nothing.
I could go into the guts of BW and find the file lurking there. For the moment, I've decided not to do that, simply to help out the BW staff. I'm assuming others are still having trouble bringing it in and won't go looking around for it. I'll let you know as soon as an update brings it in as it should.
Blessings throughout this Easter weekend. Χριστὸς ἀνέστη ἐκ νεκρῶν.
I appreciate all added resources, and especially its freeness. But I looked over a copy's list of contributors, and at the lame! article on the Pastoral epistles, and am OK with it not working in my work copy of BW.
I have had no problems with it installing on two computers (HP Pavilion laptop, Surface Pro 4). I love the functionality with the [Dict] tab open!

I appreciate your clarity! THANK YOU for your explanation.. it HELPS...
I am very grateful for this additional resource, in large part because it does seem to present a more "liberal" viewpoint.
As I understand it, BW's goal is to provide tools for the study and understanding of the text of the Bible.
I am not a Bible professional -- not a pastor, not a teacher, just a retired mainframe programmer fascinated by the Bible, by its history, by the richness of interpretations.
To limit resources to the ones that support a particular theological, or political, or social stance would deprive its users of potentially useful insights.
I don't have to agree with someone to learn from them. In fact, those are probably the ones that have most to teach me, since the ones I agree with are going to be reinforcing what I already "know".
I am running 10.0.5.984 on Windows 10. When I first updated to .884, I had no Dict tab. Now, on 984, I have a tab but nothing in the tab. All other tabs work fine but the "Dict" tab does not have any data. Also, when I minimize BW10 to taskbar, then bring it up again, I often have the desktop background showing where the "Dict" tab should be. So, with two Analysis windows open ( a 4-panel display of BW10), one of the Analysis window panes shows my desktop behind it. This will stay for many (20-30 sometimes) seconds. I also found that since I first tried to update to the Erdmann's Dict, BW10 no longer re-starts automatically after updates. I have not tried the "ini" file suggestion yet (from another post in this thread).
Regards, and thanks for any help you may be able to provide.
I did not download it separately, and did not see it in the series of updates leading up to 10.0.5.984 when I posted my question the other day. However, after the latest patch updating to 1007, I find Eerdman's is listed under Resources-Dictionaries (I had been looking under Bible Dictionaries not Dictionaries), along with ISBE, and now everything works great.
Thanks again for your support, and for the BLESSING BW10 has been to me. The efforts of you and your team have enriched my life immeasurably.
I pray that you and your crew would experience 1 Cor 1:4-7
1 Cor. 1:4-7 NKJ I thank my God always concerning you for the grace of God which was given to you by Christ Jesus, 5 that you were enriched in everything by Him in all utterance and all knowledge, 6 even as the testimony of Christ was confirmed in you, 7 so that you come short in no gift, eagerly waiting for the revelation of our Lord Jesus Christ,
