Stealth Mode and USB Sticks
Due to the need to access The Bible in persecuted countries and organizations
(like our US Military even) and be able to do so in a discrete manner without
leaving footprints, King James Pure Bible Search supports two different Stealth
Modes. For both modes, you can make use of the fact that King James Pure Bible
Search is completely self-contained and requires no external dependencies to
run, nor is it required that you actually run the installer itself.
The only “dependency” is on the Linux build and that's the requirement that your
version of Linux provides the Linux Standard Base (LSB) 4.0+ functionality. Most
distributions of Linux even come with this installed by default, and so it isn't a
For all Operating Systems, the software may be copied to a USB Stick Drive, run
directly from a CD, or even run from an obscure folder on the Hard Drive without
needing to actually install it. To do this, simply copy the entire folder structure of
King James Pure Bible Search to your target device. This file structure can be
found either via a downloadable .zip file on the
website or on the official distribution CD. Or you can copy it from an existing
computer where you've actually run the installer before.
If you happen to already have it installed on a computer, here's how you can
On Windows computers, the typical installation path is C:\Program
Files\KJVPureBibleSearch. Copy that entire folder to your target device. The
important thing is that there's a KJVCanOpener folder inside with the app, db, etc,
folders under that. The KingJamesPureBibleSearch.exe executable is found in
the app folder, but during use, it will search and find everything relative to a top-
level folder that must be called “KJVCanOpener”.
On Mac computers, the typical installation is via an Application Bundle called
“KingJamesPureBibleSearch.app” which is normally copied to your system
Applications folder. Simply copy that entire bundle as-is to your other device.
The important thing is that the subfolders in the Contents folder inside the
Application Bundle, remain intact.
On Linux computers, the typical installation location is /opt/kjvpurebiblesearch/.
Just as with the Windows computers, copy this entire folder to your target device.
There is the same KJVCanOpener folder and subfolder structure that must
remain intact. The executable is in the app subfolder.
Important Note: Just copying and running the application from an unusual
location like this does not make it stealth!! The application will continue to write
its settings and preferences to the host computer! This may or may not be
acceptable for your location and needs.
