A practical suggestion that could prevent others from experiencing the same installation problems I had: in the system requirements for e-Sword version 13 on Windows systems include having Windows Media Player installed and activated.
Thank you, Son seeker. Thank you obtaining the information from Rick Meyers. I have tried to write this in the following entry:
AND I also sent a request to Rick Meyers that he also add similar comments on the download page at https://www.e-sword.net/downloads.html
Please refer to https://www.e-sword.net/faq.html for answer to the question "I JUST INSTALLED E-SWORD 13 AND IT WILL NOT START!"
Thank you for sharing your experience, and the solution, which you discovered. Many will now probably begin to listen to the Bible read aloud, and to listen to many sermons based on exposition of the message associated with specific passages in chapters and verses in the Holy Bible.
Henry Wansbrough, who is an English monk, explains in the forward of the RNJB (Revised New Jerusalem Bible: Study Edition), (2019), page ii: “The Bible was written to be proclaimed aloud rather than studied in silence, it is important, therefore, that the message of the Bible should be read out and heard intelligibly as well as understood in reflective meditation.
Attention has also been given to rendering the language and imagery of the original languages accurately rather than by dynamic equivalence.
Further, every attempt has been made to show that the meaning of the Bible is directed to women and men equally, despite the inbuilt bias of the English language.”

Sincere thanks. Olaf Bacon.
