Dave Hooton:

Vista installs IE7, so it is optional to upgrade to IE8 irrespective of Service Pack (SP). SP2 does not require IE8 and you can safely remove IE8, leaving IE7. The situation is different with Win XP - see http://blogs.msdn.com/ieinternals/archive/2009/05/30/ie8-and-vista-sp2.aspx

 

Thank you Dave for that information. When I need pbb book builder, I will try to downgrade back to IE7, or, maybe Logos will repair the problem before I need to use the book builder.

Have a great day.

I don't need to anymore. Today Logos updated the pbb book builder and it works with IE8 flawlessly. Thank you Logos.

 I have 64 bit windows 7 and get the UAC warning every time I start L3 even when running as administrator. I have UAC set at 33%. What can be done so I don't get the warnings besides turning UAC off all the way?

 

Thanks,

Dean

I'm sorry to say this (and others may disagree) but UAC is one of the first things I turned off both in Windows Vista and Windows 7.  IMHO it's useless and extremely annoying to have to deal with.  

You can get the same or even better protection against viruses and spy ware by using a good anti-virus/anti-spy ware program. 

The anti-virus program I use and the anti-spy ware program I use - both have free editions that are very good at stopping viruses and at least cleaning away spyware.

The purpose of UAC is to stop the installation of untrusted software - in case it happens to contain a virus or other malicious code.  UAC is designed to keep any program that is not recognized by Win7 from installing without your permission. 

Now, I ask you, how often has a piece of software installed itself on your previous computers (without UAC) without you knowing it? 

I'd venture to say that if any software did install itself without you knowing - it was probably a virus or spy-ware.  And if you had a good anti-virus program (with up to date virus definitions) it would have stopped the installation of that malicious software.

Get yourself a good anti-virus program and keep it updated and turn off UAC.  IMO it's intrusive and unnecessary.

Sounds like you installed using "run as administrator". You can uninstall using PurgeLDLS.bat and then re-install from the web site without losing preferences or user data.

UAC in Windows Vista was extremely annoying but Windows 7 has a more realistic implementation. I keep it at the minimum recommended level 2 (dimming the desktop) in my Admin user account and it rarely intrudes. I run L3 and L4 without any UAC prompts and the same applies to software and resource updates (I did not install using "run as Admin"!).

I did that and still get the UAC notification. But I can always turn UAC off. I was hoping that would solve another problem I hvae. My screen reader doesn't interact with all the IE server windows like tips, passage guide, etc. So when it tries to work those pages like web pages it shows me nothing. I can read pages on IE8 just fine and this works fine in other Bible software but not in L3. does anyone know what type of fonts they use and is there somewhere in Windows 7 that I can change these so this wil work?

I just wanted to follow up on Dave Hooton's advice to you. When you removed Logos3 from your system and then reinstalled it, did you reinstall logged in as yourself? Or did you install using the "Run as administrator" option?

For whatever it's worth, I'm running Win 7 (64bit) and I created a separate log in for myself (with standard permissions) that is separate from the Administrator log in. I don't have any UAC issues with Logos (UAC is set to default level), but I did install it as myself and not Administrator.

Melisssa of tech support let me know where to turn compatibility mode off. This included unchecking "run as administrator". Now things are working fine!

I'm not testing windows 7... but I tried to move Logos 3 over to my new computer which is running windows 7.... it won't load.  I keep getting error messages from the Libronix updater.  I've tried having Win 7 launch it  under Windows XP SP2 configuration... but still now joy!

I just bought a new computer with Windows 7 home on it.  I tried to load Logos 3 on it.  It crashed, and could not properly find my library.

Tom,

With Windows 7, you do need to make sure that you are running 3.0g which is the latest version of Libronix/Logos 3. In looking at the date you registered the software, the version that is on your discs is not compatible with Windows 7. Since you did try to install Libronix already, it would be best to uninstall the software to make sure that the reinstall is completed successfully. To uninstall the software, follow the steps below.

  1. Go to Start > Computer
  2. Navigate to C:\ProgramFiles\LibronixDLS\System (or C:\Program Files (x86)\Libronix DLS\System if you are running a 64-bit system)
  3. Double-click on the PurgeLDLS.bat file (the .bat maybe not show on your system)
  4. If you do not see the PurgeLDLS file listed there, click here and that will start the PurgeLDLS process
  5. Follow the prompts to uninstall
  6. Navigate to C:\ProgramFiles\LibronixDLS (or C:\Program Files (x86)\Libronix DLS) and delete the Common, Inbound and System folders
  7. Once that is complete, click here for the steps for how to reinstall the software and follow steps 1 & 2 on that page. 
  8. When the installation has completed, open Libronix and follow the prompts for how to activate your software.

To echo this, if you have Windows 7, do not install the base image off of the CD; download 3.0g from their site. During the install it'll ask you if you have resource discs to add, insert your disc then.
