Click the button labeled "Restore Previous Version..." which is circled in the illustration. When that button has been clicked, another window will open in which there should be a list of recent checkpoints. Select the most recent checkpoint that PREDATES the occurrence of the problem. When one has been selected, click the button labeled "Restore the selected checkpoint." The window will close, and BibleWorks will attempt to open. If it does not succeed, then try the same steps again, taking a slightly older checkpoint.
1. Insert the program disk (disk 1 for multiple disk sets) into the computer.As this is the original, "out-of-the-box" version of the program executable, it will be necessary to perform a check for updates when BibleWorks opens. If the problem was caused by a recent update, though, wait and check with BibleWorks first before performing another update, lest an update cause the same problem again. A new executable will often be posted as soon as possible.
2. If an Autoplay window appears, choose the option "Open a window to view files."
3. The window will open to display the contents of the installation disk.
4. Find and single-click (to select) the BibleWorks executable file. (BW800.EXE or BW900.EXE)
5. Right-click the selected file to display a popup menu.
6. Choose "Copy" from the menu.
7. Using the folder tree on the left-hand side of the window, find the BibleWorks folder and click once to select.
(It will be on the C drive under "Program Files" or "Program Files (x86)" for 64-bit versions of Windows.)
8. The contents of the BibleWorks folder show on the right.
9. Move the mouse pointer somewhere into the area on the right and click once with the right mouse button.
10. When the menu appears, choose "Paste" from the menu.
11. When these steps have been completed, close the window and try again to start BibleWorks.
