How to Activate BibleWorks 8 on Your Windows Computer
BibleWorks 8 is a powerful software for studying the Bible in its original languages and translations. It comes with a rich collection of resources, tools, and features that can enhance your understanding of the Scriptures. However, before you can use BibleWorks 8, you need to activate it and any additional modules that you have purchased. This article will guide you through the steps of activating BibleWorks 8 on your Windows computer.
Step 1: Install BibleWorks 8
To install BibleWorks 8 from media (USB drive, DVD, or CD), you need to follow these steps:
Remove any previous version of BibleWorks from your computer. You can uninstall BibleWorks in the Windows Control Panel. Restart your computer when the uninstall is complete.
Ensure you are installing using a user account with administrative permissions.
Plug in the USB flash drive or insert the DVD or CD #1 into the drive.
Press the Windows logo key + E on your keyboard to open a File Explorer window.
Browse to the drive named BW8DISK1 (or BW8DVD1) and click on it to see the contents.
Double-click the Setup (or setup.exe) application to start the installation.
Follow the instructions in each of the BibleWorks â InstallShield Wizard windows that appear. You will be prompted periodically to change disks.
During the installation, you will be asked to enter the BibleWorks Activation Code that appears on the cover of your installation guide (or was sent to you via email) and the Activation Codes for any additional modules that you have purchased. Module Activation Codes are entered after you first enter the BibleWorks Activation Code and then click the Copy to List button for each code.
Optional add-on modules can be installed either now with the main program, or later (by re-running this step). These add-on modules require activation codes which must be purchased separately.
When the installation is complete, you will be prompted to restart your computer.
Step 2: Start and Activate BibleWorks 8
To start and activate BibleWorks 8, you need to follow these steps:
Start BibleWorks by double-clicking on the BibleWorks desktop icon.
Note that BibleWorks must be activated within 30 days of installation or the program will cease to function.
If you have an Internet connection, it is by far easiest and fastest to activate BibleWorks by clicking Activate All Resources in the Activation Manager window that appears when you start BibleWorks. If you have an Internet connection and receive an error message that activation by Internet has failed, copy the error message received and contact BibleWorks Customer Support.
If you do not have an Internet connection or do not wish to activate by Internet, you can manually activate BibleWorks by following the instructions here[^1^].
Congratulations! You have successfully activated BibleWorks 8 on your Windows computer. You can now enjoy studying the Word of God with this powerful software. 061ffe29dd
