I decided to reload Windows XP on my Dell Desktop. My thought was now that I have Accordance, I could run a lightning fast Bible program alongside some older, costly programs. So yesterday I reformatted my hard drive, loaded (almost) every program, and saved Acc for last.
But, I'm having all kinds of trouble installing Acc 11 on Windows XP.
I started Setup at about 5:30 am, and used Easy Install to download the Essentials Collection with Hebrew and Greek Syntax Modules, and about four and a half hours later 2.22 GB of data was resting in c:\Documents and Settings\Michel\Local Settings\Temp\Accordance Downloads.
After this, I double-clicked the Acc icon, but it wouldn't open. So I restarted, and tried again. It still wouldn't open. Then, much to my dismay, I looked in the Accordance Downloads Folder and it was empty.
Then I uninstalled Acc 11 from the Control Panel. In case this helps, before it uninstalled I got the message, "The procedure entry point RegGetValueW could not be located in the dynamic link library ADVAPI32.dll." I also deleted all Oaktree and Accordance Registry entries.
I reinstalled, double-clicked the program icon, and I can only see the Check for updates automatically? screen for about a second, then nothing happens. I can confirm in Task Manager that Accordance isn't running.
There was snow this morning, and now there is a strong wind storm . So it took a lot longer to download than usual. Besides helping me get Acc running, would it be possible to avoid the long download again, and copy my modules from my Windows 8 laptop to where they should be in XP?
