   Thanks for the reply.  I think what actually happened was the old writer I used corrupted the image wile writing.  All the conf files were junk.  The only thing that would work was the cd popup.  If you clicked any of the options, it would do nothing.  Manually executing applications from the disk produced errors.  The reason I say it was likely the burner was that it did similar things on another two disks I burned that day.  I downloaded the newer iso and extracted the necessary information, and all was well.

Thanks again for your work on this project.  This is really turning into a first class piece of Bible software.  Just two things I would like to see- 1) the ability to view passages in parallel across translations; 2) parsings, a la gramcord for the Mac.  Big request, but otherwise, this is a great piece of software.

God Bless and Shalom,
