    Default NIV version options?

    Greetings,
    I am new to BW 10.
    I see the 4 options to the NIV, the 2011 US, the Reader's Version and 2 UK versions.
    I am correct in thinking that we don't have the option of the 1984 US NIV?
    Thank you.

    I have an NIVO. It is definitely a 1984 edition, The NIBO is the 1984 UK edition. But I don't see any definite identification of the NIVO as a US edition. I believe the license to the NIVO is something that I inherited from an earlier version of BW.

    Tom,
    Zondervan discontinued the availability of NIV 1984. If BW customers had it prior to the discontinuation they continued to have access to it.

    Thanks.

    So I did have it in a previous version. But that does not mean I would/could have it in BW 10, right?

    Thanks again.

    Do we know what NIBO stands for?
    Thanks!

    New International Version, British, Older 1984 edition

    So the NIVO is also an Older 1984 edition, and most likely the New International Version, American edition

    Did you try using the BW installation media and selecting the Modify option to see if it is available to you. When you first installed BW did you have an activation code for BW8 or BW9 that would allow you to install and activate versions that were part of those installations, but are not currently offered?

    Two clarifications:
    The NIVO definitely IS the 1984 American edition of the NIV.
    If you owned BibleWorks before 2011, this version had the abbreviation NIV (since there was no Older version at that time). If so, you purchased what is now called NIVO, and you are entitled to use it. To use it in BW10, you need the Upgrade code from BW9, not just the original BW9 installation disk. If you purchased BW10 without the upgrade code, I can supply one to you. If you did not upgrade to BW8 or BW9, there is one other way you can regain the use of the 1984 NIV, but to do that it would be best if you have your older version of BibleWorks available. I can walk you through the process, if necessary.
