A while back I bought a new laptop with an SSD drive and running Windows 10. I installed Logos and have enjoyed the speed of the new drive.

However, just yesterday I tried to access a personal book in the new laptop but was informed that I did not have a license to view the book. I have opened Logos on the old laptop (painfully slow!) and have no difficulty accessing the personal book.

Can anyone please advise me regarding what to do?

Thank you.

I would click the Upload button on the book entry in the Personal Book Tool on the old laptop and it will sync with the Faithlife Cloud servers and then be available on your new laptop.

Graham told you what to do, but let me explain the why...

The metadata (title, author, etc.) automatically syncs between computers... the complied book does not. When you try to open a personal book on any other computer other than the one you created it, you will receive the "no license to view" warning. If you want to view a personal book on another computer, you need to do one of two things: 

  1. Manually upload the compiled file (as Graham suggested) OR
  2. Manually copy the compiled file and use the "scan" command to import it into the installation on the other computer. 

The simplest method is what Graham suggested.

There is a size limit to what can be uploaded.  [As I only have one computer I have not used upload and do not know what the limit is.]

I think I remember it was 20MB - this thread from 2016 seems to confirm that.

Thank you, JT and David. I appreciate knowing why I had the problem. The upload limit was way above what I needed and everything worked just fine.
