[sword-devel] Bug:

I sent the following message last Friday, 1/4, and now again today, 
Saturday, 1/12.  Since I'm new at this, I don't know what protocols you 
follow in answering questions/responding to bug reports.  If I'm getting in 
too big a hurry, I'm sorry, I'm just anxious to be able to get on with 
testing this software.


Since I can not get a good install of any locked file, I uninstalled the 
program and started from scratch.  This time I used the InstallMgr to 
download and install add-in modules.  I selected a number of Bible 
translations, both locked and unlocked as well as some commentaries.  I 
added the KJV w/Strong's numbers (something I had not done previously).

The installation went smoothly until it hit NASB95; KJV w/Strong's had 
already completed installing.  When it encountered NASB95, a box opened 
with the message that the version appeared to be ciphered.  I entered the 
lock code with a cut-and-paste from the supersecret file.  At that point, I 
didn't know what to do:  should I click on "TRY" or "OK"?

I ended up trying both on different runs.  When I clicked on TRY, my 
machine simply sat there with no indication of any activity of any sort (no 
disk activity, no Internet activity, nothing).  After about 7 minutes, I 
clicked on OK.  The installation immediately opened a window indicating it 
was ready to try to install NIV (opened the cipher window).  I cancelled 
the installation.

I looked at the /modules/texts/ directory to see what had been created this 
time since on prior install attempts there was no rawtext directory, only a 
ztext directory.  This time there was a rawtext directory containing 
KJV.  I then looked at the mods.d directory to see what .conf files had 
been created.  There was one for KJV which pointed to /rawtext/ via 
DataPath.  There was also one for NASB95.  It contained the correct 
CipherKey and DataPath, but there was no NASB95 directory in /rawtext/.

I tried unzipping the NASB95 file I had previously downloaded from the beta 
section and ran the Setup.Exe.  No NASB95 was created under /rawtext/.

My conclusion is that the installation works just great using either 
InstallMgr or doing it manually by downloading, unzipping, and running 
Setup as long as the file is not a locked file.  There appears to be a real 
problem, however, whenever a locked file is involved.

Any help you can give me at this point would be appreciated.
