    Release notes for the Calvin's Commentaries (CALIC 4.3  SBB00377CALVINSC0805) CD

    What about Calvin's Institutes of the Christian Religion?
    As a special offer for the initial release of Calvin's Commentaries, the Institutes of the Christian Religion has been included on the same CD.  Prior to the release of Calvin's Commentaries, the Institutes of the Christian Religion was only available in the Christian Classics Vol. 1 add-on CD.

    Explain the cursor position when I open Calvin's Commentary to a verse
    Because the sections of Calvin's Commentary often begin with long passages of scripture, when you open Calvin's Commentary to a particular Book/Chapter/Verse, for example Numbers 1:1, the page opens to a point below  the passage of scripture, going directly to Calvin's commentary text, to save you the trouble of scrolling down.  If you scroll up the page, you can see the scripture passage.  By contrast, when you open other commentaries to Numbers 1:1, for example Matthew Henry’s Commentary or Barnes’ Notes or Adam Clarke’s Commentary,  the resulting page has "Numbers" at the top with the cursor blinking to the left of "Numbers".  Below that point, you see a few verses of Bible text, then the commentary begins.

    Why does the Old Testament Interlinear show only a few Hebrew words?
    This problem was detected after the CD started shipping.  We are sorry for the inconvenience.  When we have a replacement CD, it will be sent to you automatically and at no charge.  Until the replacement CD arrives, you can restore the Hebrew by clicking the R/L button at the bottom of the screen.  Your Interlinear will then read left-to-right and the Hebrew will be visible for each word.  This problem has been fixed by the CALIC 4.3B  (SBB00377CALVINSC1005) CD.

    How much hard drive space do I need for this add-on?
    You need about 72 megabytes.

    I can't read the tab for my Bible Reading Plan
    You could read it fine before you installed this CD,  but now the tab shows black letters on a blue background.  This problem is actually caused by a Windows setting.  You might try this solution which worked for on a Windows XP system:

    1. Close all your programs.
    2. Find an area of your desktop screen where there are no icons.
    3. Right-click.
    4. Left-click on Properties.
    5. The Display Properties dialog appears.
    6. Click on the Appearance tab
    7. The Color Scheme might be set to Silver.
    8. Change the Color Scheme to Default (blue)
    9. Left-click Apply.
    10. Left-click OK.
    11. Start PC Study Bible
    12. Open the Bible Reading Plan
    13. You should see the Bible Reading Plan tab changed to white on blue, to match the other tabs in PC Study Bible.

    Known Errors (As these are fixed, instructions for how to obtain the fix will be added to each error description below.)

  • The Hover feature does not work in the Treasury of Scripture Knowledge, nor does it work in topical Bibles (e.g. Nave's)
  • File > New Study Note Reference Work does nothing.  It should create a new Personal Study Notes file.
  • The id number of this entry is 249.
