Any hopes of ever seeing dynamic pricing or any future discounted prices on this set??Confused

Considering that Zondervan effectively owns Nelson now and Zondervan historically have not allowed dynamic pricing on their packages this seems unlikely but I suppose anything is possible.

Yeah, its unlikely considering its under the Zondervan umbrella.

Looks like those of us who missed out on earlier sales and offers (i.e. before Zondervan took over!) are stuck with the $699 price tag regardless of the number of volumes we own! Thanks a lot Zondervan!!AngrySuper Angry

Several years ago I was able to get the 59 volume CD for $400, which worked out to $6.78 per volume. Although I know I will never be able to buy additional volumes at that price, it has not been worth it for me to update the set. If Zondervan ever offers a complete WBC set and allows for dynamic pricing, then and only then will I pick up the additional volumes. If enough people write to them, they may relent, but I just don't see that happening anytime soon.

Worse that that! If you have the CD version from 1997ff you can't use them in Logos 6, not good.

You can, you just need to get them added to your Logos account. This would have happened automatically if you installed the CD, and then upgraded through the successive Logos versions to the current version. If you're not able to do this, you could contact customer services with a proof of purchase, and they will add it to your Logos account.

Not exactly true. That version can't be installed directly into Logos 6 because it relies an older version of Logos (that won't install on most current computers). However, if you installed it back then and have migrated versions as they were introduced, you should still have what you used to have.

If you did not do that, or if you recently found/bought such a CD, it can't be installed directly into Logos 6, but you still might be able to get it working by calling customer service and giving the unlock code that came with the CD, or your license file located on your computer (that was possible in version 2 on, I think). If that code or license is lost, there may be little hope, since that's the only way Logos has to assure itself that people aren't installing bootleg copies of those resources. Still, customer service has been very generous and helpful with its customers.

what makes you think that? To the best of my knowledge and everything I read on the forum, you can use old CD-ROM versions in L6 - the program will in many cases download a (potentially newer, better tagged and linked, maybe de-typoed) file for Logos 4+, but it will honor your licence for the product if you once bought it in a Logos format.

Alternatively and (for both sides) preferably one may simply open http://logos.com/redeem and input the code / product key. L6 will then know the licence and download the files needed (using the command update resources may speed this up)
