Download the Beta


Though we have worked out most of the bugs, there are a few cosmetic issues that we are aware of and will be fixing soon.  Also, this release has all the features that the final EasyWorship 2009 build will include, so if you don’t see it in the Beta, it won’t be in the final release.

The 2009 Beta will create a new application folder leaving your existing EasyWorship install intact. When the 2009 Beta application is run it will update your database, so make a backup copy of your data if you wish to keep it unmodified.  You can also copy your database to a new profile.  If you go back to the old version, it should convert your data back to the old version.  You will not be able to open 2009 schedules in older versions of EasyWorship, but older schedules (pre-2009) should open fine in this version.

Please keep in mind that in this beta, older  EasyWorship 2007 serial numbers will no longer work.  Our plan is to start sending out an email to customers who have purchased in the year 2009, new serial numbers for EasyWorship and any bibles they own.  Also the store should be ready soon to accept upgrade purchases and any new purchases will generate the new serial number.

Please post any issues or feedback you have in our 2009 Beta forum…

You can download the installer here…

Have fun :)
