Are you using nsis 2.14? It has some nsis 2.14 compiler errors  ... lines 
173 and 174, WriteRegWord should be WriteRegSWORD.

With those revised, I'm getting a mysterious compiler error that seems 
related to LangString and PRODUCT_NAME, but it isn't reporting a line 
number, which isn't very helpful.

Looks like we can agree to continue using the InstallShield's practice that 
BibleCS 1.5.6 used regarding registry entry ...

HKLM "SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\App Paths\sword.exe"  "Path"

The uninstall problems aren't unexpected .... I haven't really looked at the 
uninstaller until some registry (and other) issues were pinned down. (as 
noted in earlier "caveats")

Sorry about the bad link. Please try this one:

It has installers for both BibleCS and LcdBible, with an attempt at 
commonality and consistency. They use BCS_TEST_VERSION and LCD_TEST_VERSION 
defines to speed up development. (use much faster zlib and smaller "stub" 

I'm unclear about the best name for the CrossWire executable to use at 
various points during the installation.
* The SWORD Project?
* BibleCS?
* sword.exe?

* Not much attention to uninstaller yet

* Assumes swmgr::findConfig only looks in current directory and then 
SWORD_PATH (not parent directory)
