Download Instructions:

1.  First determine which type of processor your handheld has (SH3, MIPS, etc.)

2.  Then determine which version of Windows CE® your handheld runs.

3.  For Windows CE®, also determine your model type:

  • Clamshell/handheld model (resembles mini-laptop)
  • Palm-size model (does not open and close, no keyboard)


4.  Choose appropriate BibleReader™, click on link and download to your desktop PC.

Installation of BibleReader and Bible text files for Pocket PC / Windows CE®
  1. Cradle your handheld; open your handheld's Sync/File Transfer software on your desktop PC.
  2. Use the Sync software to create one folder on your handheld: a folder named Bible in your My Documents directory. (MyDocuments/Bible)
  3. Locate the appropriate BibleReader .zip file you downloaded to your desktop PC and unzip it.  We recommend using WinZip 7.0 or above for best results, if you don't have a copy, you may go to www.winzip.com to download.
  4. Copy and paste the unzipped BibleReader .exe file (it will be called something like "bible_2.11palm_mips.exe") to the StartMenu  folder in your handhelds Windows/StartMenu. (If you do not have a Start Menu folder in your Windows directory just put it in the Windows folder.) Doing this will cause the BibleReader to appear at the top of the list when you press the Windows CE Start icon on the handheld desktop.
  5. Unzip the Bible version file(s) and Copy/Paste the .pdb files to the MyDocuments/Bible folder on the handheld.

    Note:  If you later choose to store your Bible files in another location, you must go to the BibleReader's Edit>Preferences screen and type the path to the new location into the Database Path field. Not available as yet on Pocket PC 3.0 or above.
  6. When the files are in the correct folders perform the Synch Transfer. 
  7. After the transfer is complete, tap on the Windows CE icon, then the BibleReader icon and the application will open.
  8. You may want to create a folder on your desktop PC to keep the original copies of the BibleReader.exe file and the Bible database .pdb files just in case they were ever lost or damaged on the handheld device.
