  • "Typical" installation without DLL overrides.
  • Resource.Standard mode, browsing by link, including study aids, cross references, etc.
  • Resource.Standard mode, look up by title, book, chapter, and verse.

What does not

  • Observed a few unhandled page faults on accesses to very low addresses.


What was not tested

Loading and saveing of reference lists, bookmarks, snapshots, notes, etc.

Additional Comments

Does not require DLLS, so Gold rating is not appropriate. It works far better than the description for Silver. Except for the search and unhandled page fault problems, I would consider it Platinum. I don't have access to Gatesware, so I can't see whether application behavior might differ. The drop-down menus for look-up by title, book, chapter, and verse seemed finnicky. Many times, I had to enter book names by typing the first few characters rather than mousing. Standard view uses wcSView.exe, while Resource view uses wcView.exe.

HowTo / Notes

AppDB page maintenance has been suspended.

Due to the considerable age of this application and the much newer web-based methods to access scriptural content making it highly questionable whether this page would be useful to anyone, maintenance of this AppDB page has been suspended.  A comment was posted in August, 2013 asking whether anyone still uses this application, and there has been no response.

If anyone does use this application, please post a comment.  If anyone does use this application, I'll probably resume regular testing with new versions of Wine.  (If someone else wants to be a maintainer of this page, I won't be opposed.)
