Accordance was appreciated by Mac users for many years before we were able to release an equivalent Windows version. In Fall 2013 the Windows app made its debut with the same features and speed as Accordance 10 for Mac. Accordance 13 enjoys almost-complete parity with the latest macOS version.*
Why Choose Accordance for Windows?
Accordance for Windows is fully native and does not require the use of an emulator. Our developers also chose not to use a compatibility layer, even though this would make it much easier to code for multiple platforms. Instead, Accordance for Windows is based entirely on native Windows code to ensure that Windows users experience the same speed and reliability that Mac users have enjoyed for 25 years.
FAST & EFFICIENT
While we are on the topic of speed, Accordance for Windows is fast. Really fast. Even complex Greek and Hebrew searches deliver results that feel instantaneous. Even better, you do not need to buy a brand new computer with maxed-out specs to experience this speed because Accordance for Windows is an efficient program that will not bog down your system.
Accordance 13 runs on Windows 8 and 10. Older versions may also run on Windows XP, Vista, and 7; but these operating systems are no longer supported by Microsoft and we do not recommend or support their use. Windows S, RT, and older versions of Windows are not supported.
All individual users need is one Accordance license to run Accordance on multiple Windows, Mac, Android, or iOS devices for your own personal use. If you already run Accordance on another platform, no additional purchase is necessary to run Accordance on your Windows PC. Just download the app, enter your user name and password, and begin downloading your Accordance modules.
HOW DO I ORDER ACCORDANCE FOR WINDOWS?

You can also purchase additional Bible texts, commentaries, dictionaries, and study tools, but you will need a Collection to access the full Accordance for Windows engine. Once your order has been processed, you will receive an email with download instructions.
HOW DO I DOWNLOAD ACCORDANCE FOR WINDOWS?
You should receive an email with the download link once your order has been processed, but you can also get the file from our Installers page.
DO I NEED TO PURCHASE ACCORDANCE FOR WINDOWS SEPARATELY IF I ALREADY OWN ACCORDANCE FOR MAC?
No, you only need one Accordance license to run Accordance on up to five personal Mac, Windows, Android, and iOS devices.
WHICH VERSIONS OF WINDOWS ARE SUPPORTED?
Accordance for Windows will run on Windows 8 and 10. It will not run on Windows S or RT, nor reliably on any version prior to Windows 8.
CAN I TRY ACCORDANCE FOR WINDOWS BEFORE BUYING?
Yes, we have a free “Lite” version of Accordance 12 for Windows that you can explore on our Accordance Lite page. This version has some limitations that are not in the full version, but it lets you try the Accordance interface and it includes a nice selection of Bibles and tools for you to use. You can add most purchased modules to it.
DOES ACCORDANCE FOR WINDOWS HAVE ALL THE SAME FEATURES AS ACCORDANCE FOR MAC?
Almost. Accordance for Windows is extremely close to feature parity with Accordance for Mac. The Windows version even has all of the latest features that were released in the 13 update to Accordance for macOS. However, the following features are still forthcoming in the Windows version:
- Spell check
- Dark mode
*The only remaining features to be implemented in the Windows version of Accordance are those listed immediately above.
