I have Esword on my laptop with numerous modules, some I have purchased and some I have downloaded for free. How can I transfer them over from my laptop to my desktop?

Are you using a PC or apple system
I’m willing to compromise about many things, but not the Word of God

HOW CAN I MOVE MY E-SWORD TO A NEW COMPUTER?
Copy the e-Sword *program* directory (typically "C:\Program Files (x86)\e-Sword\") onto the new PC as this will get your various modules transferred. You will still need to install e-Sword from its setup program to properly install the various system files, etc.
Also, you will want to copy the contents of your e-Sword *user* directory (typically "Libraries\Documents\My Documents\e-Sword\") to get your personal notes and other customizations transferred.

I am using a PC. I have downloaded the Esword program onto my desktop but that is all.
Moving or copying e-Sword resources from one machine (PC) to another is perhaps the most easiest things anyone can do. And all it takes in a pen drive (Memory Stick).
Depending on how many resources you have, a 16 or 32GB Pen Drive is sufficient to do the job. And with that, here is what you need to do:
OK now for stage two:
I trust this is helpful to you.

Yes, E-Sword is a wonderful program, indeed, but, as of version 11, the only main drawback (other than the very limited interface color options, no dark theme, etc.) is that it is very complicated to move your E-Sword collection, compared to other Bible-study programs such as TheWord. If you ever move the folder even within the same computer, you can expect modules to disappear until you re-install parts of the program as described above. In fact, as you may know from other posts on the forum, there is this obnoxious issue with the E-Sword installer, whereby, years after installing the program correctly, merely opening certain unrelated programs initates the old E-Sword installer somehow, requiring that the process be cancelled each time, before you can open those programs. Nevertheless, once you get the program working, it is indeed a God-send, and we are blessed to have people like Rick Meyers and Josh Bond spending so much time in order to make it available to us and to make an abundance of modules available for our use.
