What works

Almost everything.
Creates an Icon on the Desktop and an entry in the Programs menu, and these works as they should, no need to copy MEPS dlls to system32.
The M/* needs the wtlib special fonts. Now the Tetragrammaton is shown correctly and with the wtlib special fonts all Hebrew and Greek characters are also shown.

What does not

Tutorial and Help partly.
Tooltip needs comctl32.dll to work.
Some windows opens kind of minimized.


What was not tested

HowTo / Notes



The watchtower society has no official support for wtreader on linux nor apple, as stated in the readme.txt on the installation CD.

You can help yourself a lot by reading the installation suggestions BEFORE asking for help. Reading the Known Issues section you can also save us all some time.

Due to an increasing number of posts on this application page, we have to move some kinds of information, or this page would become too long & difficult to read...

We have a WIKI for putting your installation/setup suggestions into:

The wiki is moderated; see its talk page.


If you can't make it work following the instructions above, there is a FORUM for dealing with different kinds of [help] requests:

Please note that a forum of this kind is public and off-topic posts may occur. These will be deleted, but are visible until a moderator gets rid of them. Users would likely carefully review any privacy and security information and use discernment before making their own decision whether to visit or log onto other sites.
