Anyone know if there is a decent portable Bible software for use on a memory stick?
Have you tried installing to your memory stick? I realize the risk is that there are .dll files that are loaded into the Windows directories, but you never know until you try.
As an alternative option, I have a KJV in PDF format, plus a portable PDF reader. You can do searches using the "Find" function in the PDF reader, but you don't have the full-fledged study functions you get with bible software.
I'm going to try installing eSword and Online Bible onto a memory stick. I'll let you know how it turns out.
I read some stuff about why e-sword wont work, but didn't understand it - I did install the foxit PDF reader on my stick.
If you get even the basic e-sword to work let me know.
I am a BIG fan of e-sword.
I think there is a version of esword that will work. It is written in Java and as long as you have Java Virtual Machine installed, it should work.
I think it is called Bible desktop.
Net Bible http://www.bible.org/page.asp?page_id=3086 has html and .doc files
You might also try olivetree.com.
Well, that was fun (in a techno-geek sort of way).
E-Sword will work, if each computer you plug your flash drive into has the same identifier for the removeable drive. For example, the computer I used to install e-Sword on the flash drive identified the flash drive as "E:"; it worked fine from the flash drive on that computer. However, the other computer I tested the install on identified the flash drive as "J:", and e-Sword wouldn't run (mostly likely because e-sword system files were looking for things on the e: drive).
Online Bible worked fine, no problems (http://www.onlinebible.net/downloads.html).
As did J-Sword/Bible Desktop (http://www.crosswire.org/bibledesktop/download.html).
NetBible also worked, but I'm a KJV-preferred kind of guy, so I won't be using it myself.
No to olivetree as far as I could tell.
has a pc version that might, you could email him and see.
Thanks - trying j-sword now
I think I have it working thanks for the help
