Add-module activation codes may be entered after you have clicked the button "Copy to List", to copy the main BibleWorks activation code to the list box on that installation screen. Enter each code in the boxes then click to Copy to List. Alternatively, you may enter all the codes at one time by displaying them onscreen, highlighting them and executing a copy command.
