In Topic: Can't get Bible Search Tool to find first Bible

20 March 2014 - 10:10 AM

Brent help to solve this problem, but we are not exactly sure why.

 

After he had me test various functions in the hotkeys program, the Bibles would index properly and subsequently showed up in the Bible Select window. The time it took to run an indexing of a particular version increased by 2 or 3 times to between 9 and 19 seconds each. So this to me meant that something was not being executed in the original attempts to index the versions when it failed.

 

The only thing that I can guess (and it is just a guess) is that some variable was not initialized properly until we used the hotkeys.

 

The end result is that everything works now.

 

Thanks for your help, Brent.

If I delete the existing .bst file within the Bibles menu, I can verify that it is no longer in my directory. But it is rewritten there as soon as the indexing of my first version is completed. That seems to me to say that something in the indexing process completed abnormally therefore it did not build the file that it intended to be written as KJV.bst for instance. I don't suppose there are any logs created by the process, are there?

I have attempted to index CEV, ESV, NLT, GNB, BBE, AMP, and KVJ. All of these are installed and work fine in my e-Sword program.

How many different macros are there?  Is it possible that the macros were not all installed correctly?  Is there a way to verify this?

Yes, I installed the macros. I indicated that in the first post after my initial report of the problem.

 

That did change the symptom. Initially when I attempted to index the Bibles, no box came up with the available Bibles.  But it does after installing the macros. And it appears to attempt to index them. At least it goes through all the motions, but they do not get listed in my documents\BibleSearchTool\Bibles directory.
