Any Logos users testing Windows 7?

I have been running Logos with Window 7 and it works great. Windows 7 uses a version of IE 8 which works fine with Logos.

I'm not running Window 7, but I do have IE 8.  I'm a little less than pleased with that since it seems a bit too intrusive.  Your thoughts?

Been running it for a while now. Everything seems to work fine, minus one little quirk in the Notes when I need to change fonts (i.e. for my Greek/Hebrew text). When changing the font, the color is set to "default" which is fine in Vista, but you have to manually select "black" in Win7, otherwise your text will be white (white text on a white background). Other than that, no complaints and everything works like it's supposed to.

I'll bet that makes for great reading [white on white].  Big Smile

Yup, been using Logos under Windows beta and RC for a while now!  You need to watch out the user account control  at the start of the installation!

To install Libronix 3.0e correctly, the UAC need to be turn off completely. To do this, open Action Center, and click the down tab on Security, and find the UAC setting. Drag the setting to Never Notify.

I have installed Libronix on Windows 7 (32 & 64 bit) with UAC turned on without any problems.  Make sure you use 3.0f.  Many of the bug fixes in 3.0f are related to IE8.

Latest is 3.0f! To install quickly turn off System Protection. Turn on after installing - this also applies to Vista.

One thing seem not to be fixed in IE8. When I try to use pbb book builder, it does not work. The problem is, it looks that to use the Service Pack 2 with Vistas (better security etc.) you have to have IE8. Do you plan to do something about it? I sent the bag report a few times already. Thanks.

Do you know guys if  Logos personal book builder works well in Windows 7 and IE8?

I think that the problems with the PBB are not actually tied to Win 7, just IE 8 because i have issues on my Vista computer with IE8 as well. Logos Tech support knows about the issues and said that a fix is being developed.

Is it an option in Windows 7 to have a default browser other than IE 8? Or have they buried the infection deep in the veins this time? I know Microsoft is probably THE standard to match for compatibility issues and the other guys all have quirks every now and then, but I would much rather have Firefox, Chrome or Opera if they can deliver the same results. I suspect that LOGOS version 4.0 will be as compatible with IE 8 as they can be. Even if it means farther distancing from 3rd part browsers.

Yes. Firefox, Chrome or Opera can be your default browser, just as other programs can be your default for E-Mail, etc.

v4 will be based on .NET Framework 3.x - not on IE. v3 is absolutely dependent on IE so there was never a need to be "close" to 3rd party browsers, which you can always use as the default browser.

Thank you Bryan,

It is good to know Logos is working on that one. Since we are stuck apparently with the IE8 even in Vista ServicePack 2, it would be good to be able to use pbb Book Builder.

I am sorry if I confused anybody with the Win7. I know it is the issue with the IE8, not the Windows, both Vista or Win7.

I'm coming in to this late so please pardon if a repeat - I trust y'all know that it's easy to roll back from 8 to 7 if you want to. Afaik, the latest ver of L works fine with 7 .. I rolled back a month or so ago w/no probs. All you need to do is uninstall the 8 upgrade from ctl panel, and IE reverts to the last version you had installed. You may need to do a Win Update at tha point to assure you have all the IE7 security patches.

I am not sure if you can have Service Pack 2 for OS Vista and not to upgrade to IE8. It offered to me the Service Pack 2 only after I installed the IE8. That is why I just assumed we are stack with the IE8 for now Sad

I did downgrade to IE7 before. But now I am not sure I can do it. May be I will try and let you know.

I should have qualified my statement - I'm on WinXP, SP3. I don't know whether Vista req's IE8 or not, at any level. So, experiment with care :-)

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

Dave - thanks for clarifying re Vista & IE8. From an XP, SP3 platform, I had no problem at all rolling back to IE7. So, I must have installed IE8 after SP3. Typically, I install "critical updates" when winUpdate tells me to, and I wait on IE upgrades until I "have to". I'm guessing that SP3 hit "critical" status before IE8 did, since according to the article, I would have had a more complex rollback process. I menton this because I read that article before attempting a rollback, and I could not remember which I had added, first. So I just tried the easy way, and it worked. Do you know a way of finding out, after the fact, what order you did updates in? Thanks.

I'd be surprised if you updated to IE8 before XP SP3! You normally check Add/Remove Programs in Control Panel for the date you installed Windows Updates, but if you want to know after uninstalling you might still have a Restore Point for the original installation. Otherwise, you gotta rely on memory!

Of course - thank you. Btw, the premise of the article in the link you attached is that a careful procedure is req'd only in the event that IE8 was installed first. I presume that might occur if one were an IE8 betatester, or if a series of updates were done in a strange order.
