I've got my Platinum L4 setup on two old modest VISTA Ultimate laptops. One is dying so I got a new Windows 7 desktop.

How do I get my L4 Platinum software set up and transfer the 3400-3500 books onto the new big machine?

I reviewed the WIKI and FAQS for about 45 minutes, but all installation references seem to refer to updae installs not set ups.

Two or three years ago when I set up the second laptop, I downloaded a basic platinum or L4 software and then most things eventually started downloading too. However, all get find are pages to buy another Platinum which I have plus other books. (In fact at that time having VISTA required downloading the software, the CD/DVDs were too then.

Where are instructions to set up my Platinum L4 and 3500 books on my large new maxhine?

Thanks.

Jerry, you can simply download from this link http://downloads.logos.com/LBS4/Installer/Logos4Setup.exe and let it download everything, or you can follow the instructions here: http://wiki.logos.com/Quick_Installation_onto_multiple_computers to save some time

I've done one of each and if you have a fast network connection I favor just letting Logos do the work. if you can walk away from the laptop for some time.  Took maybe half a work day to download and index everything in my Plat collection.

Kevin - It was one of second options (WIKI) that I remember from my second laptop, but tried your first link. It worked. After the install, the resource download took about 8 hours but the initial indexing only took about an hour and a half. The library count says I have everything. I'll see. I still to set up all my fonts and such for my eyesight.. Also do you remember where the Logos Shibboleth software resides. I'll find it eventually. Thanks. jdp

Rick- The first link set me up in 9 and a half hours. The desktop is definitely faster than the laptops. Thanks for your input. - jdp

This typically is the Sermons of and the Illustrations of resource if you used the L3 Sermon File addon in Libronix. It could also be Libronix help books that are no longer useful. You can copy your old resource folder to a flash drive and then use the scan command to pull those books over. See: http://community.logos.com/forums/t/41147.aspx
