Just wondering - my computer crashed and I had to download the latest E-Sword. Now, my JL Dagg and John Gill reference works won't open in E-Sword.

 

Can these be converted easily?

They can be converted it just depends on which old version of e-Sword you were using before the computer crashed if you were using version 9 or 10 you can use the e-Sword Windows to Apple/Mac converter to convert them to the format that works best in e-Sword 11. 

The Windows to Apple/Mac format convert can be downloaded from this link:

https://www.e-sword.net/extras.html

 

The converter is at the bottom of the extras page

If your version of e-Sword was older than version 9 say e-Sword 8 you might need first to convert them to the version 9/10 format then convert again to the version 11 format 

 

To do the conversion from e-Sword 8 to e-Sword 9/10 format there is a converter available here on Biblesupport:

Below is a video which answers your query.

 

What is shared in this video only applies to both Topic and Study Notes used in old versions of e-Sword prior to version 9 and above. This would include Topic Note resources by JL Dagg, and John Gill resources.

 

That said, when it comes to Commentary (cmt) resources by Dagg and/or Gill, you will need to have the converter for them.

 

 

Trust you will find this helpful.

Does the Windows to Apple/Mac format convert convert old version 9-10 formats for use on Windows 10 64 bit? Sorry, forgot to ask that before.

Also, where is the "extras" page? I can't find it?

First here is the link to download the Windows to Apple/Mac converter:

https://www.e-sword.net/extras.html (The converter is at the bottom of the page!)

 

 

 

Starting with version 11 for Windows e-Sword can read both PC and Apple/MAC modules, so yes you can convert older modules to the newer format

Blessings,

I did find it helpful, brother, but all my old topic files are either in .exe or .top formats, which are not covered in your video.

If you post the complete list of modules you need, and the format you need them in, I'm quite sure one of the moderators (looking at you, Bill!) will convert and post here for downloading.

The quickest and easiest way to convert the older .top modules is to use a small program called Simple Bible Reader. This program is both a module reader and converter for many different popular bible software programs. It can also convert e-Sword modules from versions prior to version 9 to the version 9-10 format. In the case of older Topic modules that can be converted from the .top format to the .topx format with ease.

Here is the link to where Simple Bible Reader can be downloaded from;

TOP files and COM files.

Sorry I got back to this so late.

I just started looking for older versions of e-Sword online again.

TOP files are made for e-Sword 7 and 8. You need to covert to TOPX of e-Sword 9 and 10

COM files are like EXE files so you need first to double click and then can you find the real file in the e-Sword folder that you need to convert.
