Greetings, Josh, and anyone else reading this! I'm an old retired pastor, not too bad at computer-related things, but sometimes I simply don't know what I've done wrong. Usually it's something simple that I just didn't realize. I downloaded the E-Sword installer and installed it. I downloaded a text I need to be able to read. Every time I double-click on the text, I get a prompt box asking me if I want to make changes in the E-Sword Installer. If I click no, nothing happens. The first time I clicked yes, a box told me that C:\Program Files (x86)\e-sword\  did not exist. So I created it as a file folder. The next time, and every subsequent time, I double click on the file in that file folder, and the book disappears, and does not open. Thanks for kindly replying, and my apologies if as I suspect this is the proverbial dumb question! (It's late here in the country of Panama, so I will sign off now and see if you have kindly answered in the morning.)

Is there no e-Sword shortcut in the desktop screen? If not is e-Sword not installed correctly.

re-download e-Sword and try again (you need click yes for the changes in the register) and normally choice the installer the default folder.

 

C:\Program Files (x86)\e-Sword is for the 64-bit Windows OS but if you have an older Windows 32-bit OS then is it C:\Program Files\e-Sword

 

I don't understand what you mean with the "book" because you need to left double-click on the e-Sword.exe file to start the e-Sword program.

Greetings from Panama, Katoog, and thank you for your reply. I de-installed e-sword and reinstalled it. The icon does appear on my desktop. I do have a 64-byte system and the latest Windows. But the results remain exactly as I described above.

FWIW, I also have tried opening the program, but there is no way I can find within the program to open the book that I want to read. (The book is the Samaritan Pentateuch in English, downloaded from this website, in the e-sword format.) There is also, within the program, no evident way to re-download the book. So I canèt access the book from the program or by clicking on the book. I have also tried right-clicking to give me program options for opening the book, but e-sword is not among them.

This Bible Module is of the First Five Books

(only Genesis, Exodus, Leviticus, Numbers and Deuteronomy) and this is the Samaritan version of the Torah.
