If you have received your 2010 edition recently, you might discover that it does not run successfully with Watchtower Library for Mac. So far as initial tests can tell, it does not run with Wine; that includes later versions. Until the problem is resolved, you can perform a little workaround to update your 2009 edition with 2010’s information. Instructions follow.
Starting assumption: you have installed Watchtower Library for Mac and installed the 2009 edition.
This folder is where Watchtower Library editions store all the books, magazines, brochures, etc. You can find it if you start at your home folder. This is the folder represented by a little house, not your Macintosh HD folder. Then navigate to
Library Application Support Watchtower Library drive_c Program Files Watchtower Watchtower Library 2009 E
Note, if you have Finder’s Show all filename extensions enabled, then your
Watchtower Library folder will be named
Watchtower Library.app due to a minor problem with naming the folder. In that case you will need to right click, or Control+click, the
Watchtower Library.app and select Show Package Contents_. Then you can start navigating down towards @rsdata@.
E is the Watchtower language code for English. If you have other languages installed, the letter will be different of course.
E folder, you will find
Making sure that you have shut down Watchtower Library for Mac, delete the
rs_data folder and copy the
rs_data folder off your 2010-edition CD-ROM in its place. When you relaunch Watchtower Library for Mac, you will see that the day’s texts starting at December 2010 now appear. The library is up-to-date.
Note that the program itself is not up-to-date. It still says 2009, even though the data it presents is for 2010.
This workaround is temporary. I did notice that the new edition updates the MEPS libraries from 2.2 to 2.3. It also uses a later version of Microsoft Visual C run-time. There must be some incompatibilies with Wine therein. For the time being, this manual update procedure will hopefully keep you running.Read more news items...
