INSTRUCTIONS FOR USING
"Thy Word is a Lamp" Version 1.01
Dr. J. Paul Tanner
REQUIREMENTS Your computer should have the following:
(1) Internet Explorer; (2) Adobe Reader (available on the CD); and (3) 700 MB of free space on your hard drive (if installing the CD on your hard drive—see below)
TWO BASIC OPTIONS TO RUN THE CD
There are two basic ways to use this CD: (1) you can simply insert the CD into the CD-Drive of your computer, and it will automatically start up using your web browser; or (2) you can copy all the files from the CD onto the hard drive of your computer, and run the program from your hard drive.
It is highly recommended that you choose option 2, because the program will run much faster from your hard drive than it will from the CD. Older computers may give very unsatisfactory results when running only from the CD.
HOW TO INSTALL THIS CD ON YOUR COMPUTER
(1) Make a folder on your hard drive (give it a name, like "Thy Word")
(2) Copy all the files and sub-folders on the CD, and place them in this folder you created. Do not change or rearrange any of the sub-folders.
(3) Open this folder, and double-click on the program named "microweb."
(4) You will see a dialogue box informing you that you are using an evaluation copy of "microweb." Just click "OK," and the program should open with the Welcome Page. If it opens in the Arabic version, just choose "English" from the options bar, and everything will appear in English.
HELPFUL HINTS FOR USING THIS CD
(1) Adobe Reader.
All documents, charts and maps are in PDF format. If you do not have a copy of Adobe Reader, you will be given the option to install it. You will find this option on the Welcome Page.
(2) English-Arabic Option
On the "options" bar, you can switch to English or Arabic according to your preferance. Almost all the documents and charts are available in both languages.
(3) This program is menu-driven.
Using the options bar across the top, you should be able to navigate to whatever document you wish to view. If you have any trouble finding what you want, you can always go to the "Index" option. The Old Testament notes may pose some difficulty, since they are arranged in three volumes according to how I use them in my seminary classes. Also, they are arranged chronologically, rather than in the biblical order.
When you open a "document," you can use the "Back" option on your web browser to return to the previous menu. When you open a "chart," however, it will open as a new window. When you are finished viewing a chart, you can simply close the window.
(5) Viewing Charts.
Once a chart is opened, it can be rotated or enlarged or reduced by using the options of the PDF viewer. All charts and documents can be printed.
