Works for me thanks

Just downloaded the app from sourceforge & loaded in a few of my favourite bibles, commentaries etc (Suggestion, why not have the details of download mirrors pre-loaded?). It works great. I really needed this, I can now research/prepare sermons or just study anywhere I can get to a PC.

thankyou, thankyou thankyou!

Another use

Hi

Continuing thanks thibeaz

I am still using this & it works fine on Windows though it does have problems running under Linux with wine.

It has also occured to me that it is going to be great sharing this with folks with all the bibles/commentaries etc already loaded in. I have tried to pass round things like eSword in the past but some people have been put off by having to install all the modules to get a worthwhile set up, especially the less tech savvy. This way you can hand people something that 'just works' - & legally as well. Oh the joy of a clear conscience with free software!

Another brother in Christ

Oh, great! And, if I may

Oh, great! And, if I may make this suggestion, maybe make the app non-PAF and just leave those settings (if you haven't fixed the problem) in the directory that SWORDPROJECTPortable.exe goes in, so you don't have so many writes on the drive, and it's just faster.

help please - error

Hi, just download swordprojectportable today and go this error message.

SWMgr: Can't find 'mods.conf' or 'mods.d'. Try setting:
SWORD_PATH=directory containing mods.conf
Or see the README file for a full description of setup options configpath is null

Need your help, thanks.

New version

Try my new version: https://portableapps.com/node/10582. It's been updated to the latest version of SWORD and should fix your problem.
