    Default x64 BibleWorks 10 Mac Installer Beta

    Hello, Friends!

    We have a long-awaited x64 beta version of the BibleWorks 10 Mac Installer. If you have a BibleWorks 10 license, you are welcome to try it. You can download it here:

    Have fun!

    6/11/2018 Edited to add the following:

    I should have given more details on this. I'll add more as it comes to mind, but for now here are a few tips:


    1. This dmg is large compared to the smaller x86 (32-bit) dmg installers. This is because we made the x64 installer to avoid needing the Installshield step. When you open the dmg and copy BibleWorks into your Applications folder, it sets up an installed copy of BibleWorks.
    2. You will need valid activation codes for BibleWorks 10 (and your modules). When you run this x64 version of BibleWorks the first time, it will request that you type/paste in the codes.
    3. The x64 installation is already fully patched. You don't need to apply any of the updates (except for the current EXE update). You can ignore the other database updates. We'll be cleaning that up over the next few weeks.
    4. There are only a few, minor areas where the x64 is not identical to the x86 version.
    5. If you need to change the x64 installation (e.g. add manuscript images), insert your BW10 USB media (or mount your BW10 ISO file), and then select from the main menu BibleWorks | Add or remove BibleWorks content. This will start the Installshield interface and let you add/remove components to your current installation.
    6. If you have an older version of the BW10 USB drives or downloaded ISO (e.g. rev1, rev. 2, rev. 3), some of the free databases we released after the initial release are only available in a newer rev (or via the x86 program updates). The final rev released in July will contain all of these databases. Until then, you can copy them from an x86 (normal 32-bit) installation (from the BibleWorks 10/databases folder).
    7. Things to avoid in the x64 beta:


    • Don't change the default font sizes in Tools | Options | Fonts
    • The View | Zoom options do work.
