No, there's just the one version, I think. But the samples you posted 
previously were most definitely not it. I thought they might have been 
from the starter pack, which I think still has an incomplete version of 
the KJV.

It does nothing special and does no direct access of the module. I think 
it just sets some flags to turn Strong's on.

If the KJV is not installed anywhere, then you can't be accessing it with 
diatheke. Diatheke doesn't know how to search the current directory for 
modules. It can only locate modules through Sword.
