Some Setup e-Sword requirements for e-Sword version 13.0.0 on the Microsoft PC.
SermonAudio requires that Windows Media Player is selected in the Windows Legacy components of the Microsoft (64-bit) and (32-bit) operating systems.

This allows the user to Turn Windows features on or off. To turn a feature on, select its checkbox. To turn a feature off, clear its checkbox. A Filled box means that only part of the feature is turned on.

If the Windows Media Player is not installed and activated on the PC, then e-Sword version 13.0.0 will not run.

A Faithful Version
Rick Meyer has approved the loading of the text of "A Faithful Version", which can now be loaded from inside e-Sword. 
See https://e-sword.net/training.html and select option "Downloading additional resources for e-Sword".
With the Bible window open, select "A Faithful Version" on the tag "AFV", with a left mouse click. During the loading of e-Sword, the entries are sorted, so the tags will appear in alphabetical order. Then select the "Bible" tag at the top of the screen, and in the pop-up window, move the pointer to the "Information" option.

A Faithful Version, the Holy Bible in its Original Order, has the correct manuscript order of both the old and new testament which is different from the traditional order of books. For the sake of scriptural comparison the order of books for the sake of this program have been rearranged to the traditional order.
For the proper version of the books please visit:
NOTE: Only the text is provided in this edition of the download. Words in italics reflect where the author added words which are not in the original text, in order to complete the English grammar, and to explain information which would be understood in the figures of speech in the original language. All Scripture text may be freely quoted. No margin notes, or other commentary entries have been provided. For further details, refer to the above mentioned website. Please contact the relevant webmaster if you have any further queries. The spelling uses English (United States). 
John 1:38 (KJV) has been split into two verses, following the numbering of Stephens Greek text, thus John 1:38-51 (KJV) is now John 1:38-52 (AFV). 1 John 5:6-8 (AFV) follows verse numbering of the Revised Version (1881, 1885), and Revised Standard Version (1946, 1952, 1971) whereas more recent Bible versions have changed to follow King James Verse numbering, while omitting the gloss which had been added in the KJV from margins of late manuscripts of the Latin Vulgate, since the added phrases do not appear in the majority of the Greek manuscripts. 3 John 1:14 (KJV) is now 3 John 1:14, 15 (AFV), following Greek numbering in Stephens Greek text. 2 Corinthians 13:12 (KJV) is combined with 2 Corinthians 13:13 (KJV), thus verse 2 Corinthians 13:14 (KJV) is renumbered as 2 Corinthians 13:13 (AFV), following Stephens Greek verse numbering. You will notice similar verse number changes in many other recently published Bibles. e-Sword caters for these verse changes, which you see if using the "Parallel" option, and loading AFV in the first column, and the other Bible in a subsequent parallel column. None of the Books of the Apocrypha are included in AFV. For the content of those books, see "King James Version w/ Apocrypha", added to e-Sword since 2019/08/08.
