Software FAQs

Readers of Bible Code Digest frequently write in with questions about the various Bible code software programs. In this article, we will discuss some of the basics about the three programs that we offer in our online store�The Keys to the Bible (Keys), Bible Codes 2000 (BC2000), and CodeFinder: Millennium Edition.

What are the basic computer requirements necessary to run the programs?

The Keys to the Bible

  • Minimum of 16 MB of RAM

  • Hard disk with at least 100 MB of available disk space

  • CD Drive

  • VGA or higher resolution monitor

  • Minimum Screen Resolution of 800*600

  • Mouse

  • Bible Codes 2000

  • Hard disk with at least 22 MB of available disk space

  • CD Drive

  • VGA or higher resolution monitor

  • Minimum Screen Resolution of 800*600

  • Mouse

  • CodeFinder: Millennium Edition

  • New Version 1.23, October 2008

  • Runs on PCs with Windows 98 through Vista and Windows 7 (32 & 64 bit)

  • Minimum 16 MB of free RAM after Windows is running

  • Hard disk with at least 20 MB of available disk space

  • Minimum Screen Resolution of 800*600

  • Will the software run on my Apple Macintosh computer?

    All three programs can be run on Macs that have VirtualPC Windows edition software (not the DOS version) on them. A minimum of 64 MB of ram is required, though 128 MB or more is better.

    Do I have to know Hebrew, or may I search the codes in English?

    To use any of the programs, some knowledge of Hebrew is very helpful, because the searches are done in Hebrew.

    The Keys to the Bible and Bible Codes 2000 programs make it easy to search for words in Hebrew. On the search codes screen, there is an English/Hebrew Dictionary button (the Dictionary button is on the right-hand side). You can search for the word you want in English. Then, double-click on it. The word you wanted will then appear in Hebrew in the search window. So, if you want to search for temple, go to temple in the dictionary, double-click on it, and the word temple written in Hebrew will appear on the search screen. If any codes are found, a list will be generated of where each letter of each code crosses through the Bible, and a matrix of the code can be generated as well. The matrix will be in Hebrew, though. So, again, it is helpful to know some Hebrew.

    CodeFinder allows for practice searches in English, but not valid code research in English.

    Which program is easiest to use?

    All three programs are easy to use. At Isaac Newton Bible Code Research Society, we lean toward using Keys and BC2000 for our searches. So, if you are interested in double-checking or replicating the searches we present in the Bible Code Digest or on our site, either of these programs would work for you. But, we have many happy customers who use CodeFinder. The choice is up to you.

    Which program is the most affordable?

    The prices range from approximately $60 to $80 (including shipping) as of November 2004, with BC2000 as the most affordable and Keys as the most expensive. CodeFinder, since it is e-mailed to you as a download, does not have any shipping charges.

    Which program is the newest?

    The Keys to the Bible is the newest software program that we offer. It was released in December 2003.

    After I buy a program, will there be a cost to receive updates?

    For Keys and BC2000, there is a cost for the updates. For CodeFinder, updates to new versions are a free download for the owners of the program.

    What if, worst-case scenario, my computer crashes and my download backup or my program CD gets ruined? Is it possible to receive a replacement?

    For Keys and BC2000, if Computronic Corp. can verify your original purchase, they will replace your CD for a $20 fee (as of Sept. 2004, fees subject to change by Computronic Corp.).

    For CodeFinder: if your original purchase can be verified, you will receive a replacement download.

    Which program has the most accurate Hebrew text?

    The Hebrew Old Testament (Tanakh) used in Keys and BC2000 is the latest version from the Koren researchers in Jerusalem. It varies 14 letters from the text in the printed version of The Jerusalem Bible. CodeFinder uses the text from the printed version of The Jerusalem Bible.

    Therefore, if you are trying to replicate a search done in Keys or BC2000 in CodeFinder and it happens to pass through those 14 letters, you will not be able to replicate the findings from the Keys or BC2000 search.

    What extra features do the programs have?
