Yes.  I had the same problem trying to follow her command line.  After several hours I finally got it to work when I found out where Logos.exe was located.  Do a search for Logos.exe and then make sure your command line takes you there and try that.  Mine wasn't under ...logos\logos.exe but under ...logos5\logos.exe

Can you give more detail about what you've tried, the exact command? And what results you've had?

Tried multiple ways. A different UAC window pops up. Running Win 10 Pro. Popup does not say ngen.exe. It says something else. I don't recall now.

But, it does something very quickly then Logos opens just as slowly as normal -

We'll need more info on the command you used and what the popup said. It should say ngen.exe. Other than the UAC, you will see no other indication. Logos will launch normally.

Thank you for the instructions to make Logos faster.

Sure! I've tried the exact syntax of the original thread, changing my Logos.exe location as instructions, but only had an error message.

Here is the command I run-

"C:\Users\bcook\AppData\Local\Logos\Logos.exe" /ngen

Here is a screenshot of the UAC

I cannot get it to run. It keeps saying "The system cannot find the path specified." 

You really need to make this easier and clearer. Very frustrating!

What is the path you are using?

`[logosinstallpath]\Logos.exe /ngen`

Mine shows a ngen.exe, but I believe that you are running it correctly and it is working correctly. You can see the exact command by clicking the "Show more details" link in that UAC dialog. But it looks like it's working as intended.

`[logosinstallpath]\Logos.exe /ngen`

[logosinstallpath] should be replaced with the path to your logos directory where it was installed.

You can determine the path a number of ways.

Justin Gatlin:

Right click on your Logos shortcut.

Click Properties on the menu.

Copy the text in "target" (for me it is C:\Users\Pastor\AppData\Local\Logos\Logos.exe". 

In the command prompt, paste that followed by " /ngen".

You can run a command prompt and execute the command:

REG QUERY HKCU\Software\Logos4\ /v InstallDirectory

Or...... here's a two minute hack, shamelessly stealing code from Faithlife's SmartTags script.

1682.LogosNGEN.zip

Unzip that script to your desktop. Right Click on it and select Run with Powershell. It will run the proper command for you.

Unlike others here, I have found running "ngen" to consistently cause my startup to be slower than it was before, both from a fresh boot and from restarts within a boot (faster because of cache). I am keeping it off.

Likewise. Is there a reason for this?

I entered the command and it just booted Logos. there was no "do you want to allow this to make changes?" prompt

Yes, it is as slow or slower for me, too. I certainly can detect no speedier startup.
