I have been using the Logos Hebrew Keyboard but today it's disappeared and when I try to re-install, it says the dll is already in the directory, try again. But trying again just results in the same error message? Logos say its provided without any support, so I haven't bothered asking them. Any assistance appreciated.

Hi there MJ

No, I haven't solved the problem that works consistently but discovered a work around.  My entire family are Logos users (two parents and four children aged between 10-16) and they each have tablets, laptops and PCs: six machines in all. 

The imperfect fix: On Windows 10 Build 1909,

  1. go to Settings
  2. Tap Time and Languages
  3. Tap Languages
  4. Install the Hebrew language pack if it isn't already installed
  5. Tap the Hebrew language
  6. Under keyboards, tap the Logos Keyboard
  7. You can remove the other keyboards 

Most of the time this works. Sometimes it doesn't and when it doesn't, no amount of tinkering will bring it back. 

You used to be able to uninstall the Logos keyboard as an app from the Control Panel but that functionality has been deprecated in favour of Win 10's Settings App. 

But the keyboards don't appear there even though the error message persists in reporting that the DLL is installed. 

As a workaround, I installed SBL's Hebrew keyboard. It too is homophonic but differs from the Logos Biblical Hebrew keyboard in that aleph is in a different place.

The keyboard can be obtained here: https://www.sbl-site.org/educational/BiblicalFonts_SBLHebrew.aspx
