Praise God! It works! You folks have done a very helpful thing by
making this Windows version functional. I have my special characters
(I should say that I am presently testing this in Windows 7 and
using a keyboard which Wes made which uses the language bar and has
installed my keyboard to the "Yoruba" language. So I have not
actually tested this with Keyman yet. But my previous version of
Bibledit for Windows--which I got from a different site--didn't give
me my special characters under this configuration either. So I am
hopeful that this version will also work in XP with Keyman 6.2.)
Now I should find out whether I installed it right. I just unzipped
it (using 7zip) and navigated through the resulting folders until I
found the Bibledit executable file, and double clicked on it.
Let me know if there is something else I should do to be using this

There's a possibility that the exeonly download may work if you
already have an older version of Bibledit for Windows, but you may
still have issues.
The UPX download is bibledit.exe only, and its usually ~800k or
so. Again, this one requires a previous installation to be useful.

My internet connection is good, but limited. I tried to
download the zip file link, but at 70+ MB it took a long
time and in the end something didn't work right because it
I don't know too much about software development--looking at
the general page that you also gave a link to, I see a
variety of download options. Are any of these downloads
smaller in size and would they work for me just to use the
program? Or maybe they're for development or modification,
so do I need to re-try the zip file?

Hi all (but
particularly the Bibledit for Windows people),
I downloaded BE for windows some months ago,
I have not been able to get it to work with Keyman
(v. 188.8.131.52), which is kind of an obstacle to me
using it at all.
I would assume that at least some of the people
who put Bibledit into a Windows version, or those
who are using it, have used some sort of keyboard
manager in order to type scripture, so maybe some
of you have some suggestions.
It is not a critical problem, but since I am using
Bibledit in Linux (BALSA), it would be nice to
have it functional in Windows as well.
Thanks for any thoughts or suggestions,
