Before Downloading


Finally this new and updated version of e-Sword CD Menu is complete, and ready to use. A great deal of changes has been made to where it one is able to distribute not only e-Sword official resources, but also one's own and other third party resources. And the best thing about that is all resources can be installed through the menu program.

OK, the changes made to the program are:
  • Gone are the context menus, and replaced by Dropdown Combo Boxes, which are hidden and will appear once a particular resource button has been clicked.
  • Gone is the option to install a PDF reader, as I have assumed everyone has got one in some form or another.
  • Gone is the help file and replaced by a user guide
  • Colored Bible icons in the resource buttons to differentiate the resource types.
  • Discontinued ESIM, and kept its older brother, the e-Sword CD Menu, abbreviated as ESM
  • Installs the current version of e-Sword (what ever it may be).
And many other changes.

Media This Program Will Autorun On
  • CD (Tested)
  • DVD (Tested)
  • Pen, Thumb, Stick, or whatever name one wishes to it Drives (Tested)
  • Blueray (Not Tested)
What's in the Zip file?
  • autorun.inf
  • e-Sword.ico
  • ESM Help.pdf
  • ESM.exe
The Kind of Files You Have to Have
  • Latest e-Sword version setup file
  • e-Sword Training setup file
These two files must be in the same location as the ESM.exe and ESM.pdf files.

Important stuff you need to know.

This program will only run installer files which have an exe extension. You will not be able to install any resources by any other extension.

The next important thing you will need to know, is that the program will only load up the files from their required default folders, which are:






Step Libraries

All Notes

The program will not load any resources from any other folder names, and the user will receive an error massage stating what the error is if the folder names are different from above. See Screenshot at bottom of this page.

Just a few things I forgot to add in the Description.

1. The resources that this program will only install are the "FREE" official ones. Third party modules you may add to your cd/dvd can only be accessed via Windows Exploder (oops, I mean Windows Explorer.

2. Before you do anything in order to use this program on your cd/dvd PLEASE READ THE HELP FILE and follow the instructions. I cannot emphasis this enough.

3. Take note of what he folder names are, and even more importantly, TAKE NOTE OF WHAT THE ACTUAL NAMES ARE GIVEN TO THE INSTALLER FILES.

If you have any problems or issues or difficulties, do not hesitate to email me and let me know what it is. I wrote the program and know it backwards. I even use it in the CDs I give away.

A Tip for resource file names


By changing over from the context menu to the dropdown combobox in ESM, makes naming files a lot better. One is able to have longer file names for their installers, thus giving the user a more complete title rather than a abbreviated filename. I've (well at least I hope I have) made the comboboxes wide enough to view the name of the installers. However, a too longer file name will extend beyond the width of the comboboxes and make it difficult to read. So, I think its best to keep the installer filename at about a maximum of 30 characters which includes spaces. Anything longer than that cannot and will not be read.




I found that I had the wrong filename in the code for user manual.


Was ... Process.Start("esm help.pdf);


Is now ... Process.Start("esm user guide.pdf");


I apologize for any inconvenience caused by not having the correct filename in the code.




There has been a change made in the naming of the folder from Topic Files to All Notes. This is the folder where one places installer programs for:

  • Topic Notes (topx)
  • Study Notes (notx)
  • Journal Notes (jnlx)
  • Reference Books (refx)

As a result of this, I had to edit the code so that menu program could read the new folder name and load installers for that category of resources into the dropdown combobox.




Hi Stephen.

There is this old note still on this read me page


  • Installs e-Sword 10.40 (I nearly forgot to mention this one).

Hi Jon,

Ta for that.


I totally forgot that was there. I think I'll change that line to read, "the current version," whatever that version may be. That way that line will always be up to date, and won't have to worry about it in the future.
