You can still distribute e-Sword with additional resources for your friends who don't have an internet connection, simply copy the resource form your existing e-Sword installation, the Bibles, Dictionaries, Commentaries, Topics, etc, and put them on the flash drive, CD, DVD, with the latest installer. You will need to install e-Sword on their system of course, after e-Sword is installed copy the raw resource to the same location
as you copied it from on your system.
The e-Sword Download Manager
found on the menu listed as Download
, will download the raw resources, slang for Bible (.bblx), Commentary (.cmtx), Dictionary (.dctx), Topic (.topx) etc, and will locate them in 1 of 2 locations:
Most resource files will be in the e-Sword root directory
along with the executable - e-Sword.exe
. The rest of the resources are usually found in the \My Documents\e-Sword
folder. A search of your system for \e-Sword
should quickly locate both directories. Once you've located the resources, the file types for the given addons have been mentioned many many times
, highlight the file, and 'copy
' it to the location you have the e-Sword installer.
I like to know files I'm moving from one location to another stay unchanged so I create an .md5sum against the file, not necessary but it lets me know the file hasn't changed from when I first copied or moved it.
