    Default BW 10 installation on Macbook Pro

    I've got BW10 & have just taken delivery of a new Macbook Pro. (Prior to this I had installed it on my Windows 10 laptop).

    Can I just install it on the Mac from the flash drive or is there anything I need to do as well?

    I had posted this question some weeks ago but had no reply. With BibleWorks now having closed there is nowhere else for me to go.

    Regards.

    You need the Mac Installer available on the BW website under downloads and (I think) a Mac activation code. Not sure how you get one of those at this point.

    You can install it on the Mac using the flashdrive. The activation code is the same for the PC and Mac.

    Default BW10 installation on MacBook Pro

    Thank you for the replies.
    I am aware I can use my flash drive to install BW10 on my new MacBook Pro (as I did with my Windows laptop) but I was informed by BibleWorks, before they closed, to use https://kB.bibleworks.com/index.php?/article/AA-02916

    They said it’s because they’d had several updates to the Mac Installer file. I quote, “Please use the latest downloadable Mac Installer dmg file rather than the one on the flas drive for the best performance.’

    So before I begin should I just use the link above and not use the flash drive at all?

    Regards.

    The above is from a longer post by MBushell

    This is from Article/AA-02916 that you referenced.
    Two things are needed to install BibleWorks: the BibleWorks installation media (either an iso file or USB drive) and the BibleWorks Mac Installer dmg file.

    So the ISO and installer from this link should work. https://www.bibleworks.com/#slide4
