QuickVerse 4.x and earlier were not STEP-based.  Try QV 5.0 or later. 
See <http://craigr.com/backup/faq.htm> for the gory details.  If you
poke around or search Craig's site, you'll find quite a bit of
information on QuickVerse and STEP.

Parsons have a free STEP NKJV on their FTP server:
<ftp://download.parsonstech.com/demos/qnkjo.exe>.  Gotta use Windows to
install it, though.  :-(

Craig has also offered to me in the past to explain the 4.x and earlier
data format if anyone is interested in writing a driver for it.  I would
certainly be interested in this, as it would let me use the NIV with
BibleTime!  I understand that the format is a very simple binary
encoding where every word was given a 16-bit code.
