I followed the instructions and successfully matched every screenshot. However, when I try installing "Hebrew Study Bible (Interlinear Hebrew Old Testament with Strong's numbers and transliteration) 1.5" each of the four modules shows up blank. Every other bible I have installed from biblesupport works but for some reason the one I really want doesn't. Can someone help me find a solution that will get the Hebrew Study Bible to show?

 

Thanks in advance,

this is just a crazy idea I don't have a mac to test it though

 

Install Tooltip NT (T4)

 

Open

Hebrew Study Bible (Interlinear Hebrew Old Testament with Strong's numbers and transliteration) 1.5

 

in T4 then save the module 

 

 

creating the module within the mac or crossover environment may make a difference

 

 

Like I said just an Idea 


May God change our hearts to what the truth is

2Ti_2:15 Study to shew thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth.

Rom_9:16 So then it is not of him that willeth, nor of him that runneth, but of God that sheweth mercy.

2Ti 2:24-25  And the servant of the Lord must not strive; but be gentle unto all men, apt to teach, patient, In meekness instructing those that oppose themselves; if God peradventure will give them repentance to the acknowledging of the truth;

I'm having an interesting problem with some modules in E-Sword running through Crossover for Mac. Some of the modules install just fine, others appear to install but do not appear in the menu. I've tried manually dropping them into the e-sword directory as well as using the built-in download utility. 

Under Crossover for Linux, everything works just fine. Any ideas?

Reference Books (and topic modules) appear under the Reference Library: Tools from the main menu, and then choose Reference Library

Thanks Josh! But, this even affects my .cmtx files. e.g. tsk.cmtx it doesn't even show up in the main commentary window (after having downloaded it). 

What the heck? - Rik

OK... So after having installed, removed and then reinstalled (several times) e-sword via Crossover Mac I found that e-sword would only see new modules if they were installed not just dropped into the main directory. Strange, because that works just fine through Crossover Linux. Anyway, if anyone else runs across this problem it actually worked for me. Cheers!

Thanks for all of the images and help! I've got e-Sword and the Module Installer installed on my mac through Crossover. However, none of the modules I install using the installer are showing up. When I open the References area, it's blank. Am I missing a step? 

 

I'm trying to install Kuiper, B. K. - The Church in History.

I would like to add that in case you want to drag the module file (not the .exe)

 

Up on your desktop click "Go" Select "Go to folder" and write this directory:

~/Library/Application Support/Crossover/Bottles/e-Sword 1020/drive_c/Program Files/e-Sword

and hit enter.

This will take you directly to the esword folder.

 

Notice that I wrote e-Sword1020 with Bold, this is because your directory could be named different.

If this directory does not work for you just write it up to "Bottles",

~/Library/Application Support/Crossover/Bottles/

Look for e-Sword folder then / drive c / Program Files / e-Sword

 

Now what I do next so I don't need to keep remembering all this directory is drag the e-sword folder to the Sidebar. That creates a shortcut for easy access. 

Enjoy!

At last some instructions on how to get the module installer in CrossOver! Thanks! However, when I click on any downloaded topx file that isn't an exe, it will not do anything. I have gone through the instructions on downloading the installer several times, checked and rechecked. I'm no closer to getting other kinds of files installed than I was when I started. 

 

I haver read the whole string of message here and am hoping to get additional help.

 

I have CrossOver 11.2

If CrossOver does not work for you then install Parallels 9 and XP or Win 7. After you can install e-Sword and modules, It will works very well. I installed e-Sword and BibleWorks 9 use on Mac OSX.
