Why Didn't Installation Use All of the Disks?

BibleWorks 7 and 8 may have been distributed with multiple CDs to be used in installation of the program. Five or six of the CDs (depending on the revision number) are labeled Program Disk. 

(An additional CD in the set is labeled Module Disk. Note that this disk actually has its own Setup program, and is not used in the installation process for the program itself. Setup for the Module Disk must be run AFTER the BibleWorks program installation has been completed.)

When one runs Setup to install the BibleWorks program, a choice is given whether to install FULL or CUSTOM. If FULL is selected, then the setup process will install all files for the program to the computer's hard drive. If, however, CUSTOM is selected, fewer files will be installed to the computer. A box displays that contains a list of elements available for installation. Some are already checked, and additional boxes can be checked, as desired. If no other boxes are checked, that is, selected, in this list, then fewer of the installation disks will be required. It is common for the setup process to skip disks three and five. Despite having skipped these disks, the program will still open and function normally.

It must be stressed, though, that when the listbox of available elements first displays, those items that are already selected by a checkmark MUST NOT BE UNSELECTED. These elements constitute a basic part of the program, and are integral to its successful operation. To remove them will cause the program ultimately to malfunction.
