#20763 Can't get Bible Search Tool to find first Bible

Posted by BarryF on 20 March 2014 - 10:10 AM in e-Sword Tools & Utilities

Brent help to solve this problem, but we are not exactly sure why.

 

After he had me test various functions in the hotkeys program, the Bibles would index properly and subsequently showed up in the Bible Select window. The time it took to run an indexing of a particular version increased by 2 or 3 times to between 9 and 19 seconds each. So this to me meant that something was not being executed in the original attempts to index the versions when it failed.

 

The only thing that I can guess (and it is just a guess) is that some variable was not initialized properly until we used the hotkeys.

 

The end result is that everything works now.

 

Thanks for your help, Brent.

If I delete the existing .bst file within the Bibles menu, I can verify that it is no longer in my directory. But it is rewritten there as soon as the indexing of my first version is completed. That seems to me to say that something in the indexing process completed abnormally therefore it did not build the file that it intended to be written as KJV.bst for instance. I don't suppose there are any logs created by the process, are there?

I have attempted to index CEV, ESV, NLT, GNB, BBE, AMP, and KVJ. All of these are installed and work fine in my e-Sword program.

How many different macros are there?  Is it possible that the macros were not all installed correctly?  Is there a way to verify this?

Yes, I installed the macros. I indicated that in the first post after my initial report of the problem.

 

That did change the symptom. Initially when I attempted to index the Bibles, no box came up with the available Bibles.  But it does after installing the macros. And it appears to attempt to index them. At least it goes through all the motions, but they do not get listed in my documents\BibleSearchTool\Bibles directory.

Regarding changing Bibles= to Bibles=* in the settings. . . Either I don't know how to change it, or I can't change it. I can see it in Files -> Settings, but it will not let me enter anything into those settings.  I suspect there must be some other way even though the BST pdf says that I should be able to change it here. (It also says that it is not recommended.)

 

After seeing the next update to this thread, I noticed that there is an ini file in my documents\BibleSearchTool directory. I edited that so that it was 'Bibles=*', then re-indexed a couple of Bibles, but they still don't show up.

 

Regarding the files under my documents\BibleSearchTool\Bibles directory there is only one file and it has .bst as the name (nothing before the dot). This is the only file. Since there are no names of the versions that I attempted to index, I would guess that this is not what I would hope to see.




#20739 Can't get Bible Search Tool to find first Bible

Any ideas why the Bibles do not show up in the left pane when attempting to select Bibles? Both the left and right panes are completely blank.

 

I have even attempted to create the Bible Index multiple times for the same version. Each time I do I can see it going through the list of the books of the Bible from Genesis through Revelation. The total time listed is always somewhere between 4 and 5 seconds. So it seems to think that it has done this successfully.

 

I even went so far as to uninstall Bible Search Tools and reinstalled it. Then attempted to index some versions again. But I still have the same results.




#20712 Can't get Bible Search Tool to find first Bible

I attempted to follow the instructions above, but the link to the e-sword extras is bad. It finds the website but gives an 'object not found' error. I searched for the extras on e-sword, found it and installed it successfully.

 

Now I was able to index several different Bible Versions, but when I attempt to select the Bibles for a search, they do not show up. I tried to do a Find anyway, but no success there either.

 

I also am not sure what the other two links above are for. The last one is the documentation for the Bible Search Tool and I already have that and am trying to follow the instructions in it.

 

I installed the HotKeys even though I will never use it. I use dozens of different programs during the week and trying to remember HotKeys for each one is impossible for me. So I use menus instead.

 

Installing the HotKeys did not make any difference either. I followed the link to the tooltip tool, but was not sure what I was supposed to do with that, so I did nothing.

 

End result is that I believe I have the Bibles indexed (although it only took about 5 seconds for each one.  But I cannot select them to do searches.




#20692 Can't get Bible Search Tool to find first Bible

I am not sure what I am doing wrong.

 

I downloaded the Bible Search Tool. It installed and opens OK.

But when I click on Bibles then Create Index, there is nothing displayed in the window.

I thought perhaps I had to set the correct directory path somewhere, but do not see where to do so.

All of the other menu items appear to be related to executing searches after the Bibles are indexed.

Except the DELETE BST FILES menu item.

 

All my eSword modules are installed in the default directory, and they all work great.

 

I am using Windows 7 and it is a 64-bit machine, if that makes any difference.

 

Thanks in advance for any suggestions.
