I'm posting this because I am curious to know if anyone has ever created a desktop Gadget that would work as, let's say, an e-Sword "daily reading plan". I am curious because I have one on my Windows 7 Home Premium 64 bit. It supposed to enable you to access the daily reading plan in QuickVerse, BUT, it does not work for me. I like e-Sword, so I was just thinking that that would be cool to have. Does anyone have a comment they would like to make on this subject? :rolleyes:

Hi Mike,

Here's a work around. Copy and Paste the following in Notepad, and save it on your desktop as a Batch file (e-Sword ShortCuts.bat)

-----------------------------------------------------
@echo off
goto menu
:menu
echo.
echo Which section of e-Sword do you want to open?
echo.
echo Please choose one:
echo.
echo To Open Bible Reading Plan, Press 1
echo To Open Daily Devotions, Press 2
echo To Open Graphics Viewer, Press 3
echo TO Open Prayer Requests, Press 4
echo To Open Scripture Memory, Press 5
echo TO Open STEP Reader, Press 6
echo To Quit, Press 7
echo.
echo.
set /p x=Choice:
IF '%x%'=='%x%' GOTO %x%


:1
start /MIN /D"C:\Program Files\e-Sword" e-Sword.exe -h -r
cls
goto menu


:2
start /MIN /D"C:\Program Files\e-Sword" e-Sword.exe -h -d
cls
goto menu


:3
start /MIN /D"C:\Program Files\e-Sword" e-Sword.exe -h -g
cls
goto menu


:4
start /MIN /D"C:\Program Files\e-Sword" e-Sword.exe -h -p
cls
goto menu


:5
start /MIN /D"C:\Program Files\e-Sword" e-Sword.exe -h -m
cls
goto menu


:6
start /MIN /D"C:\Program Files\e-Sword" e-Sword.exe -h -s
cls
goto menu


:7
exit
:end"

-------------------------------------------------------------------

I've not tested with e-Sword 10.x, so some of the shortcuts may not work.

Thank you Dyan. I had to change the path a little bit and got it to work. Still tries to open other things and can't. But soon as I click ok to all the little errors (some of them are .mapx I think), it opens the correct number choice. Pretty cool! I am not exactly brilliant in writing bat files so I had to surf to find out how. Although the batch file approach can work, I think I still want a desktop gadget that is more geared for my system. I do believe your batch file is cool. If you run accross anyone who writes gadgets send them my way.

Works well - changed Program Files to Program Files (x86) and no problem. As I have esword on most of the time might not use it but a good 'gadget' to have - thanks

I had some corrupted files. After I got rid of those, everything works as expected. Thanks Dyan!
