The NIV is selected as my prefered Bible.  But it is not even showing up in my library.  and it is not coming up when I look for a passage.  The title is in my library, but when i click on it, a window opens thats says "Resource Missing"

Hi Michael,

The first thing to try is typing 'Update Resources' in the command line. Then reboot Logos.

If this doesn't work I am sure that there will be other instructions following.

Uninstalling and reinstalling is so Windows and unlikely to work on a Mac.

It's unfortunately Mac-ish too from what I've seen. I've had a number of resources that wouldn't ever get populated in the Mac version. Every time I started it, I could see it downloading but it'd never appear. I've had to follow the instructions to delete everything on the Mac and reinstall twice so far to get all of my resources.

That said, I do have the NIV bible up on my screen without a problem.

Some things get cured by deliberate actions - others as a coincidence of actions.
The underlying engine of the mac version uses a number of files that do not get changed when you uninstall and reinstall - it is these files that are likely to have entries that are causing the problem. It is these files that the developers will sometimes ask that you delete and allow the engine to replace.

One definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over again and expecting a different result.  Huh?

Having watched the evolution of MAC OSX from 9->10, I'd have to say each progressive version is getting worse in terms of stability much like Windows was where you stuffed a ton of features in it. I have to admit that while I still like my MacBooks, I don't pine for it as much with Windows 7 as that has been significantly more stable for me and I sort of don't see the value in the premium at the moment.

It isn't just Logos, I have this problem with a lot of Mac apps :). Just my personal experience is all.

What didn't work? The update command or uninstalling and reinstalling? If you're uninstalling there's like 3 or 4 different places you have to delete stuff from to uninstall it.

ETA: Here's the uninstall instructions:

...and its a pain to do :).

@James

Do you remember what Mac OS 9 was like? Extension issues, miscellaneous crashes. Sure, it was screaming fast on the hardware, but it was buggy. OS X 10.0 and 10.1 were buggy too, but really from 10.3, it's be hands down a more stable, reliable, and safe OS.

Sure do, but I thought 10.0 and 10.1 were actually better better than 9 :). 10.3 as you indicated was the best one and then they've gone downhill again. I just think its inconsistent that most Apple people target Windows problems as things they don't see when they did occur and frequently for me. The old BSOD in Windows? Well I get the "Spinning Beach Ball of Death" on the Mac and far more often than I like. The MacBook won't go to sleep or wake correctly, it seems to toggle the fixed/broken flag on every minor upgrade (prior to Win7, I couldn't make my Windows laptop do the same).

ie, My current opinion on Windows 7 is that is significantly better than past Windows products. It's been significantly more reliable and stable on my desktop than my MacBook has. I think that's a combination of OSX going "downhill" from 10.3 and Windows 7 just being a good product.

Apple's hardware quality is atrocious. At my company we were having 50% failures over the first year. Lesson learned there, if you buy anything Apple, buy the Applecare. It's just too iffy to me.

If I was going to do it again, I doubt I'd pay the high premiums for their MacBooks at this point especially if they continue their OS trending and while I think their hardware quality is much better over the past few years I'd still not buy one without Applecare.

Again, my opinion and experiences :).

Michael,

Would you mind uploading your ResourceManager.db and your Updates.db so we can take a look at them?

Those files are in /Users/<your_User_id>/Library/Application Support/Logos4/Data/<some_random_chars>/ResourceManager/ResourceManager.db and Users/<your_User_id>/Library/Application Support/Logos4/Data/<some_random_chars>/UpdateManager/Updates.db

Thanks,

Tom
