SwordSearcher Bible Software System Requirements

The following requirements and recommendations will ensure SwordSearcher functions optimally on your computer.

  • A PC running one of the following operating systems:
    • Windows 10
      PC (desktop, laptop, tablet) versions supporting desktop software, 32 or 64 bit.
      Windows 10 Home, Pro, and Enterprise are supported.

    • Windows 8
      Windows 8/8.1 or Windows 8/8.1 Pro, 32 or 64 bit.
    • Windows 7
      Any edition, 32 or 64 bit
    • Windows Vista*
      Any edition, 32 or 64 bit
    • Windows XP*
      SP3. Any edition, 32 or 64 bit. Display of some non-English text and glyphs is sub-optimal in XP.
  • You should have at least 60 megabytes free hard drive space for a minimal installation. A complete installation of the Deluxe Version takes about 1GB.
  • For Deluxe DVD installation, a DVD-ROM or Blu-ray drive is required.
    (If you do not have a DVD drive in your computer, you should order a download instead of the DVD.)

Information on this page is relevant only for the current version of SwordSearcher. If you have upgraded from an old version of Windows to a new one, you should also upgrade SwordSearcher to the current version to ensure compatibility.

32 or 64 bit?

SwordSearcher natively supports both 32-bit and 64-bit editions of Windows. During installation it will automatically determine the required version to install. There is nothing you need to do.

What about Windows "S" and Windows RT?

These special editions of Windows will not run desktop software and are not supported. Windows 10 "S" can be upgraded to Windows 10 Pro to run SwordSearcher.

*Windows XP and Vista:

We continue to support these operating systems, but for SwordSearcher to work properly, you need to ensure that your Windows XP or Vista installation is fully up-to-date using the Check for Updates feature in Windows. Install the latest version of Internet Explorer possible on your system to bring important system files up to date, even if you do not use Internet Explorer. Since these operating systems are no longer supported by Micrsoft, some features in SwordSearcher may not work as well as they would on a modern PC.

What about Mac and Linux?

Mac and Linux users may be able to use software such as Parallels or Boot Camp or Crossover or WINE to run Windows software such as SwordSearcher. We can only provide support for SwordSearcher itself and can not provide support for installation issues with non-Windows operating systems.

For Mac users, Parallels is the best option for running Windows software.

What about mobile devices; Android, iPad, iPhones, etc?

SwordSearcher is not currently available for these devices. SwordSearcher will work on full Windows tablets like the Surface Pro, Dell Venue 8, Asus VivoTab Note 8, etc, but as it is Windows PC software it requires hardware that supports Windows desktop applications.
