PowerWorship for Multiplatforms, version 0.1, alpha 1
[Archived] Download and Install Instructions for Windows XP, Vista
1) Download and Install Apache OpenOffice.
2) Download PowerWorship from the following URL (for your version of OpenOffice) and unzip the archive (e.g. using WinZip or InfoZip) to any location on your hard drive (e.g. C:\Program Files).
- OpenOffice 2: PWmp_v0.1_alpha1_oo2_win32.zip
- OpenOffice 3: PWmp_v0.1_alpha1_win32.zip
- OpenOffice 4: PWmp_v0.1_alpha1_oo4_win32.zip
The location where you unzipped the archive should now contain a directory named PowerWorshipMP_0.1.
This directory will be referred to as <pwmp_install_root> in the remaining steps.
3) Launch WordPad (Start > Programs > Accessories > WordPad) and then select File > Open and navigate to <pwmp_install_root> and then select All Documents under "Files of type".
Select pworship.bat and click Open.
Scroll down (if needed) and make sure OO_HOME points to the correct location, depending where you installed OpenOffice.org.
Next, make sure JAVA_HOME is set to the correct location for the Java Runtime Environment on your system.
On Windows 7 and later you can open a command prompt and type "where java" (without the quotes) to determine where the JRE is installed on your system, assuming the java executable is found on the system PATH.
If you do not have a JRE installed you can download Java SE 5 (or later) here: http://java.sun.com/javase/downloads/index_jdk5.jsp
Once you are finished editing the OO_HOME and JAVA_HOME settings, save your changes to the pworship.bat script and exit WordPad.
4) To launch PowerWorship, navigate to <pwmp_install_root> using Windows Explorer and double-click the pworship.bat script.
The PowerWorship main program window should be displayed.
