  •  Installation Instructions

    1. Log on as the non-Admin user who wants to run PC Study Bible
       
    2. Put the highest versioned Reference Library CD you have in the CD drive tray, but do NOT close the drive.
       
    3. Hold down the left SHIFT key on the keyboard.
       
    4. Now push the CD drive tray closed.
       
    5. Count slowly to 30 then let up on the Shift key.  (This process prevents the CD from starting on its own.)  If a message about Filter Keys pops up during your count, just ignore it until you finish counting, then click Cancel on the Filter Keys message.
       
    6. Use My Computer or Windows Explorer to view the contents of the CD.
       
    7. Right-click on the Setup.exe.
       
    8. Click Run As.
       
    9. Click Admin.
       
    10. You will then need to enter the Admin password and the install will proceed.
       
    11. At the end of the install, it will usually want to restart your computer.  Let it restart.
       
    12. Log on as the same non-Admin user.
       
    13. Remove the CD from the drive.
       
    14. Start PC Study Bible.  It should work fine.
