Well friends, there it is.... I've tried it all and the results were a dogs breakfast! sigh....
Some thoughts... I noticed Bill Huff having identical issues, with the correct files sittng on his machine, yet unrecognizable. If you search out that file on Microsoft, it's part of a large library of files WHICH ALL MUST BE INSTALLED at the same time....according to Microsoft.
Is it possible that an update came from Microsoft that wasn't installed 100% correctly, and that files were dropped along the way? I had those kind of situations several times back in 2002, 2003 with the old XP Home software. Back then it was easy to fix, just reinstall XP Home and let the computer update again....all problems were solved, like printing a copy of a new book. Typo's are gone.
I just don't think the Text Controller is working...properly. Sometimes perhaps it works, but it's not showing any love to eSword. We wrestle not against flesh and blood, eh Brethren? I'm not a technichian, but really have no further idea what the issue could be. Hmmm....maybe some of my old software corrupted my system. I don't know.
So far nothing has worked for me, and I cannot re-install the original Win7 Pro software and it's basiclly unavailable due to date. In just a few months Microsoft is ending all support for Win7 Pro, even the security updates. I still don't know what is causing the issue, but if anyone has some idea, then feel free to speak up. I have considered using different repair tools offered over the Internet, but that's a great way to surrender the machine to whoever wants it. Frauds and rip-off artists abound.
