Microsoft has created a program that allows you to open and view Word documents. Word Viewer 2003 allows you to view and print our material. You cannot edit an open document, save a document, or create a new document. However, if you need to edit our material, Word Viewer 2003 does allow you to copy the document’s contents to your regular word processing program where you can then edit and save it. (Note: some original formatting may not translate over.)
Microsoft has created a program that allows you to open and view PowerPoint presentations. PowerPoint Viewer 2003 allows you to view and print our PowerPoint presentations. You cannot edit the presentations, or create a new presentation.
These files are compressed into one package to make downloading faster and easier. ZIP files are both PC and Macintosh compatible, but you need to have a program installed on your computer to "unzip" the files and save them to your hard drive.
Just like ZIP files, these are files compressed into one package for your convenience. EXE files don't require any additional software to "unzip", but they are only PC-compatible. Just save the EXE file to your hard drive and doubleclick on the filename to unzip the Word documents inside.
After you have pressed "Download Now" …
Every Web browser will be slightly different, but, generally, the download starts when you get a dialog box that asks what you want to do with the file. Choose "Save the file to disk." This saves the file to your hard drive. You will then be given another dialog box asking where you want to save the file. Usually, the browser will already have a folder in mind, and the filename will already be filled in. You can either accept these defaults, or you can change them.
Before you click "Okay" to save the file to your disk, you should be aware of two important things.
First, you will have to remember where the file is located and what it is called. If you accept the browser's defaults and let the program choose where to put the file and what to name it you should make a note of the name and location of the file in order to find it later.
Second, if you do rename the file, do not rename the extension. The three letters that follow the period in a file name are the extension. The computer uses these three letters to determine the type of file that it is working with. Feel free to rename the file (the name in front of the period) anything you like. However, you must keep the extension the same as the name suggested by the computer or you will confuse the computer when it comes time to open the file.
To open your ZIP or EXE file, now all you need to do is find the folder you saved to your hard drive and doubleclick on it. If you downloaded the ZIP file this should open up your WinZIP or StuffIt application so you can uncompress the archive. If you downloaded the EXE file doubleclicking should automatically begin the unzipping process for you.
Some of our documents are PDF format documents, and should work in most PDF viewer programs. We recommend using Adobe Acrobat Reader, which is freely available here.
Some of our documents are Word or Powerpoint documents, designed to be used in Microsoft Word or PowerPoint. Word / Powerpoint version 2007 or newer is recommended, although version 2003 should work if the Office 2007 Compatibility Pack is installed. Our Word or Powerpoint documents are not guaranteed to work with other word processing software (such as Microsoft Works or OpenOffice).
If you are using the recommended program to open the document and you still get the error, the document may be incomplete or have become corrupted during the download process. Send an e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org, and please include the word processing software you are using, the version of that software, and the document name you are having problems with.
Christian Copyright Licensing International (CCLI) has recently partnered with Motion Picture Licensing Corporation to offer a service especially for churches. Church Video Licensing (CVLI) offers an "umbrella license" for an annual fee, that works a lot like your CCLI license to print or project song lyrics.
You can show authorized titles from MPLC's long list of big name studios (including Sony, Warner Bros., and Disney) and from a growing list of Christian movie producers. This license covers clips in sermons, plus videos shown in classes, youth groups, and events such as family film nights, so long as no admission is charged and the title is not advertised to the general public.
Fees are based a church size. Licenses can be granted over the phone. For more information, contact CVLI at 888-771-2854 (CVLI) or visit their website at www.cvli.org.
