You will find information explaining what new changes have occurred inside e-Sword for the PC, as improved by the developer, Rick Meyers, from the following link https://www.e-sword.net/changes.html
This link occurs on the page https://www.e-sword.net/downloads.html
To download and install e-Sword on your PC, please follow these simple steps:
- Click the top button that says "e-Sword Install".
- When your browser's Save dialog appears, choose "Save" to start the download.
- Open/Run the file (for example by opening the folder where you saved it and double-clicking the installation file). There is no need for uninstalling older versions before updating. The installation program guides you through the rest of the process. It is recommended to use the default settings for installation.
NOTE: If your computer security is blocking the download of the file with the file name extension "exe", when your browser's Save dialog appears, chose "Save as" and add the following at the end of the filename ".docx", so that the filename will appear as
e-sword_1300_setup.exe.docx then, after the file has successfully downloaded, browse to the filename, and right click to select the option to view this filename with the Properties option. You will notice that the file has been blocked, with a warning: Security This file came from another computer and might be blocked to help protect this computer. There is an open check box next to the word Unblock on the right side of this warning security message. Move the pointer over the Unblock check box, and select this by tapping the left mouse button, or the equivalent left button on the laptop mouse pad. A tick will appear in the check box, and the Apply button option at the bottom of the Properties window will become available. Select the Apply and the OK button options.
Return to view the filename, and select the option to rename the file. Remove the added ".docx" to bring the filename extension back to ".exe". When the Rename warning appears, If you change a filename extension, the file might become unstable. Are you sure you want to change it? There are two options, Yes, and No. Select the Yes option. Now you can Open/Run the self-installing file.
