Hey Troy,

congratulations to you and all others who were involved with this big effort. 
GOOD JOB! I could install and run fine!

A few minor issues:

-version number and date in autostart program are incorrect

-I selected many modules in initial instmgr run, started and wanted to alt+tab 
to another app -> windows crash. Was not reproducable though.

-verse numbers are recognized as Strongnumbers (Tooltip)
-Do we really have the NA27U4 module for public distribution? I would be most 
delighted if it were so, but atm it is on the CD but not on public crosswire 
-right-to-left-text also goes bottom-to-top which is incorrect
-NPNF1-01 module is displayed with unreadable small font! maybe size 2 or 3.
-BHS displays incorrectly with vowel points
-Bible does not snap to an existing entry if the current verse is not 
contained in its text.

Again, thanks a lot for all the really hard work that you guys put in the 
software and cd recently. You are doing an awesome job. Beta testing is a 
very good idea. Hopefully more ppl will test and reply SOON.

Joachim and Martin
