I was having trouble with this. The first verse of EVERY chapter was gibberish. I deleted and reinstalled and it worked fine. I have Windows 7 and e-Sword 11.1.0.
I have a friend that we couldn't get it to work. After a LOT of checks, deletes, re-installations, etc., I asked about his OS. He is using Windows 10 and has 11.1.0.
My wife's computer uses Windows 10. Her HWSG module (www.biblesupport.com/e-sword-downloads/download/7819-full-vocalized-hebrew-bible-compilation-from-westmister-ot-and-salkinson-ginsburg-nt/) was completely messed up. I deleted and reinstalled. It worked fine. Then I checked and she was using version 11.0.6. I upgraded her to 11.1.0 and she now has the "first verse" problem.
SO, it seems there is a problem running HWSG on Windows 10 with version 11.1.0. Anyone else have this and how did you correct it, if you did?
Here is what that combination looks like:

Any help would be appreciated.
