I get several emails every month from people running QuickVerse 4 and needing help to install it on a new machine, or to install some add-on product. Or they want to know where to find a particular QuickVerse 4 Bible, CD, or other related program.
I’ve made a decision tonight to just be done with that topic. Laridian has its own Bible software for Windows now, so there’s no need for anyone to keep using QuickVerse. If Findex wants to support their product, they can do it. I’m not going to do it anymore.
It’s been thirteen years since I sold all my interest in QuickVerse to Intuit coincident with the sale of Parsons Technology to Broderbund. It’s been eleven years since QuickVerse 4 (the most popular version of QuickVerse) came out. It’s been almost ten years now since I left Parsons Technology. It’s been about that long since tech support was available for QuickVerse 4 from its current owner. That’s a long time. Microsoft is on its third version of Windows since then. I’ve married off three daughters since then. QuickVerse has been owned by at least four different companies since then.
I’ll leave the QuickVerse 4.0g patch at my website. You need that version to install under XP and perhaps later versions of Windows. Once you download it and save it to your hard drive, just run it to update your QV4 installation to the rev “g” version of QV4. Other than that, it’s past time to move on. Both for me and for die-hard QuickVerse customers.
Until a couple weeks ago there wasn’t a good option for people who liked the old QuickVerse programs. Now there is. I’m ready to retire from the QuickVerse support business. I don’t really remember anything about that program anyway.
