Tryout My Ching

By default My Ching operates in trial version mode after you first install it. By purchasing a license pack you can unlock the full features of the software.


The limitations of the trial version are explained here.

Sample journal

So you can appreciate the power of the My Ching search engine, the trial version contains a large sample journal of over 7200 readings. Each sample reading is a hypothetical question whether to apply for a particular IT job. Each job is described in detail in the journal comments. Note that just to the right of the journal search text box there is a down arrow. Clicking on it drops down a search history list containing many examples. To find out what some of the symbols mean, consult the manual in the help.

There is also an empty general journal into which you can enter your own readings. In the trial version you are limited to 10 readings.

What's New?

By clicking on the release notes (page contents right), you can find out what's new in version 1.0.17 of My Ching.

Upgrading My Ching

Before installing an upgrade we strongly recommend that you make a backup of all your journals using the backup feature. (Just in case!) It is usually not necessary to un-install the existing version. If you un-install the old version, you will loose your journal data unless you have made a backup first.

Which 'bit version' to use

Most modern PC's purchased after 2005 can run the 64-bit version. This is recommended for the best performance. If you have Windows XP, there is a possibility that your computer might be an older 32-bit system, in which case you need to download the 32-bit version. If you are not sure, see below in the section Windows Architecture. If in doubt, use the 32-bit version because it works on any system.

For Linux

The developer's own version of My Ching runs on Linux Mint. You may have noticed that most of the screenshots are of the Mint version. When work is finished on the installer package for Linux we will make it available to the public. We hope to make an announcement before the end of 2017.

Ubuntu Linux Logo

The Mint version of My Ching will also be compatible with Ubuntu Linux, as Mint is based on the same package repositories. If you would like to see a version of My Ching compiled for another distribution of Linux, please contact the developer and tell him about your preferred distro.

For Mac OSX

To find out if your computer system is 64-bit or 32-bit you can either consult the manufacturers specification or you can use this method.

1. Open a command prompt from the program menu.

2. In the command prompt type the following command and press return:


If it replies with 'AMD64' is means you have a 64-bit system, and if it replies with 'X86', your system is 32-bit.
