I’ve made a purchase. How do I activate it?
For purchases of both Bibles and Pro the same applies. Make sure you are logged into the account you purchased with, within the FreeWorship application. Ensure you are connected to the internet. You will then need to exit the software, and reload it. Ensure you install any available updates, otherwise your purchases won’t be automatically applied.

You can check what plugins or features are activated on your account by navigating ‘Help > Diagnostics > Licenses’

PowerPoint is not functioning…
Close FreeWorship. Ensure that the PowerPoint application is closed; if necessary open the task manager using the CTRL+SHIFT+ESC key combination. Search for POWERPOINT.exe in the process list and end the process. Restart FreeWorship and it should function again.

I want more Bibles…
You can purchase additional Bibles from our shop here. These are fully licensed and obey copyright law. It is possible to import any XML Bible into FreeWorship, however, we will not support this. Use Google to find these.

I want to import songs from another software…
You can import songs and databases from a number of other projection software using the inbuilt importer (File > Import > Songs). Due to the number of different software on the market, it is best simply to download FreeWorship free to test whether your songs are compatible.
