The e-Sword Module Installer automatically installs your e-Sword modules! It copies your e-Sword module to your e-Sword Resources Location or User Files Location on your Windows PC. This works for e-Sword 9, 10, and 11.

Step 1:
Download and install the Module Installer. (During or after the download, click "Open" or "Run" to install the Module Installer)

Step 2:
You can install modules from Windows Explorer, Internet Explorer, or Firefox.

Option A - Double Click the file in Windows Explorer
You can now double-click any e-Sword module you downloaded in Windows Explorer:

(If the Module Installer asks you for Administrator permissions, click "Yes".)

For a non-editable module, the Module Installer shows this screen (don't worry, all you have to do is click "OK").

Zip files
If you downloaded a zip file: double-click the zip file (or open it while you download the file, as shown below). When the zip file opens, double-click the e-Sword module to launch the installer.

Option B - Installing directly from Internet Explorer
You can install a module without leaving Internet Explorer! After starting your download in Internet Explorer 9, click Open in the popup at the bottom of the screen. This will launch the Module Installer when the download finishes.

Option C - Installing directly from Firefox

Windows 2000, Windows XP, Windows Vista, Windows 7, Windows 8, Windows 10 and maybe older versions of Windows.

Special thanks to Brent Hildebrand for help with the installation file, which was was more trouble than the application itself. And special thanks to Doctor Dave and Jon Graef for beta testing.

What's New in Version 0.6 (See full changelog)

  • September 2, 2016: No coding changes. I added a code signing certificate to both the installer exe and the tab renamer exe to avoid most virus/malware warnings. This identifies the program as being from "Bible Support".
  • July 2016:
  • Updated to work with e-Sword's HTML/Apple modules, such as commentary.refi, bible.bbli, reflibrary.refi, lexicon.lexi, etc.

When the Module Installer has downloaded, click on the file, to run it, and allow it to install into
the 64-bit Program Files in its own new folder. It will do something very friendly - it will allocate all the relevant filename.types to the correct default file app, which will be set to moduleinstaller.exe on the setting page "Choose default applications by file type". This kind of allocation of a file type to a non-Microsoft app, which is not loaded from the Microsoft Store, is not presently possible manually. So from then on, any bblx file, for example, will know to use the e-Sword-moduleinstaller. 

Is there a way to install any of these files on e-sword X for Mac?

Is the E-sword app for android yet? Where can I find it? Thanks.

For attention Josh Bond, and for consultation with Rick Meyers, please. Will someone with an android device, such as a smart phone, please confirm whether the resources from Bible Support will work with the secure website apkpure dot com > e-sword-bible-app > com dot atompillybot dot rgfc74 which claims that it is e-Sword for android. Then, could that application, which has apparently already been developed for access to Bibles and commentaries, be provided from Rick Meyer's website; and then an application developed so it will also be supported by applicable download formats for all options of files which have been made available from Bible Support, including an android e-Sword module installer, for the android devices, which are not running on the Microsoft Windows operating system, please. Perhaps the technology already developed could be incorporated, or expanded, or adapted, to a new applicable option to be loaded from the e-Sword website.

It says this works for e-sword 9, 10, 11. But what about e-sword 12?
