Desktop Assistant for BibleReader
Latest update: January 11, 2007
The Desktop Assistant is a PC utility developed to allow you to interact with some of BibleReader's features from your desktop computer. It includes the ability to work with your personal note files created with the BibleReader. It also allows you to create your own Daily Reading Schedule to use with BibleReader. At this time, this utility will only interact with your Personal Note Files and Daily Reading Schedules.
Desktop Assistant Features:
For Palm devices, the application works on the notes files that it finds in your Palm backup directory on your PC. So, it will use the most recent files as of your last HotSync. When you are finished working with a note file and want to put it back on the device, you must select the file from the list, and click on the Install button from the toolbar. You will then be prompted to press the HotSync button on your device to complete the installation.
NOTE: At this point support for storage cards on Palm devices is not finished. As long as the note file from your storage card is backed up to your PC in the backup directory (C:\Program Files\PalmOne\your profile\Backup\), the application will find it. However, when you try to install the file back to the device, it will only install to main memory. This is something that will be fixed in a future update.
Pocket PC Devices
If you have a Pocket PC device, there are a few things to notice. First, for the application to work correctly, you must have the BibleReader on your device closed, and your device must be connected to the desktop computer. Make sure to close the BibleReader by clicking on Tools>Exit, not by tapping the "x" at the top of the screen (this does not close the program). Also, when the note files are opened, they are taken directly from the handheld device. When a note is changed or added, and then saved, the file is immediately copied back to the device. You do not need to install the file manually.
NOTE: For the note files to be found by the application, they must be stored in one of these default directories:
