    Default how to restore Chinese Bibles in BW10 after June 15, 2018

    I used to have 3 Chinese versions in my BW10. I bought a new notebook computer (MacBook Pro) today and installed BW10. Everything looks okay except that the Chinese versions are gone. They are also not available in the "check for updates" as they used to. Does anybody have any idea what to do to restore the Chinese Bibles? Please advise, thanks!

    Cool found solution

    I found the solution to my own problem. I copied the files associated with the Chinese versions from the "program folder" of BW10 in my old notebook computer, then pasted in the same folder in the new computer ... it works! 👍 Thank God!

    I just checked. Five Chinese versions are included in the ISO that is posted on https://www.bibleworks.com/. Did you download and use that ISO to make the installation? It contains 5 Chinese versions. You must also use one of the two Mac Installers.

    The posts below indicate that there has been some success installing BW on a Mac but also suggest the possiblilty that some of the problems may never be fixed and only a virtual machine will give a complete BW installation on a Mac.

    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:

    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.
    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.
    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.
    There are only a few, minor areas where the x64 is not identical to the x86 version.
    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.
    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).
    Things to avoid in the x64 beta:

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

    Please note that you will need to enter all your activation codes.

    Your settings will all be gone and you will need to replicate them

    You will then be provided a long list of updates to resources going back to 2015. Once downloaded, some of them do not install due to an error.

    All WordSearch titles need to be reinstalled.

    This should have been made clear before posting the beta, so I am posting what should have been posted before you make the decision to join the beta.

    I know they are busy, but this is not good!

    (From BW homepage) What about the Mac version of the program?

    BibleWorks updates for the PC will also work on the Mac platform. We will do our best to insure compatibility of BibleWorks 10 with future Mac OS changes but the situation is more complex than with the PC platform. The coming macOS versions require 64-bit programs. BibleWorks is in good shape for this, and we will soon release a full x64 Mac Installer dmg. We will also be working with CodeWeavers to explore options for them to continue compatibility support for the BibleWorks Mac Installer. Finally, in any case, Mac users will likely be able to fall back to using a virtual machine (like Virtual Box, Fusion, or Parallels).
