[sword-devel] Abnormal Program Termination

Good day, all.

I have been having a problem with two modules that I downloaded for my Win98 
computer.  I receive an "Abnormal Program Termination" message when I had 
loaded both the Wesley.zip file and the ISBE.zip file.  I load these modules 
by themselves, so I know that it is not a conflict between the two modules 
waiting to be "registered" with Sword.  Has anyone else had this problem?  I 
"fixed" the problem by opening up the Wesley file and then extracting the 
data.zip file and manually unzipping the .conf, .vss, etc. files.  I 
unzipped them to the appropriate folders under c:\Program Files\CrossWire\.  
I have yet to play with manually unzipping the data.zip file for ISBE.

Also, who is in charge of the website's navigation?  I was trying to 
interest my wife in the site and the great work that is going on with the 
Sword Project.  She observed that the site would be too complicated for her 
to use easily.  Since she is a novice web surfer, and she thinks that it is 
too confusing, I wondered if there were others who would be turned off by 
the site's complexity (or lack of intuitive flow, as my wife said).  Are 
there any plans in the future to restructure the site's navigational layout? 
I believe that if the site were easier to navigate and a little bit 
"brighter", it would make novices (and others) more likely to visit the site 
and allow them to have a better experience.  Then, maybe, they would 
recommend the site to others, and they would recommend it to others, and 
then we will have sparked a revolution, and ......  You get the idea.  
Anyway, that is just my 2 cents worth.  I am willing to help redesign the 
site's navigation, if a redesign is deemed important enough by the others.

BTW, I love the use of ModDisp.jsp and the "Click here to download if..." 
page.  It lends a very professional touch.  Is there a problem with 
downloading the ModDisp.jsp source code?  I can't seem to get it to download 
at all.
