I originally installed Logos 4 on a Windows XP virtual machine (VMware Fusion 3) that also has my Logos 3 installation. My Logos 4 resource count (on XP) is 4377. This past weekend, I "upgraded" Win XP to Win 7 (basically a clean install of Win 7) and eventually installed Logos 4. Now my book count is 4308, 69 less than my Windows XP installed.

I now know that 59 of the missing resources are of the old Logos 2-LIX/LSF format. I'm not sure of the remaining 10 missing resources; I'm guessing that they are also from that same era of Logos Library System books. Apparently when I installed Logos 4 on XP, it download 4308 books that I own of the Logos3/Logos4 format and imported 69 books of the ancient format from my Logos 3 installed. And since there was no Logos 3 on my Windows 7, Logos 4 just installed the books I have from the server. Then I WRONGLY assumed that just copying and pasting the missing books into my Windows 7 Logos 4 install would trigger an indexing of the LIX/LSF resources and add them to my library!!!

So my question is, "How do I get my Logos 4 on Windows 7 to recognize my old LIX/LSF resources? I hoping for something well short of starting all over by installing Logos 3 first in Windows 7 followed by installing Logos 4 again!!! Wink

(by the way I'm still running my XP virtual machine, just in case there is a file or folder I could copy from Logos 4 there to Logos 4 on Win 7...)

Logos4 cannot read LIX/LSF resources. As far as Logos knows all of them have been converted to LBXLLS books. If that's not the case for you yet, run the logos update script here, and see if it finds replacements for those old resources:

http://www.logos.com/media/update/ResourceAutoUpdate.lbxupd

After running the script, if any resources are updated, be sure to sync your licenses again. If that doesn't resolve the issue, you'll have to take it up with Logos support.

As far as resource count goes, besides the LIX/LSF resources, take out of the count all the Logos helpfiles (lbxoeb) and PBB's (many also lbxoeb). Then take into account that most reverse interlinears came in two varieties in Libronix (e.g ESV and ESV rev int), but in Logos all the reverse interlinears are combined so that you have only one copy where you had two in Libronix.

But wait, it gets more confusing because you have to add some resources in L4 that were add-ins in L3, plus some other new resources you may have gotten with your crossgrade or upgrade.

It's all a bit confusing, and so far we don't have a bibliography report in L4 to compare against L3. We hope it's being considered, but I don't remember seeing any promise from Logos to give us one.

Logos 4 DOES read LIX/LSF - in fact, as I write this I'm reading the "Ages Software Overview Guide," which is in my Logos 4 resource folder as "AGESSOVB.LIX/LSF." Most books have been converted, but there remain a few that have not been - I still have them!!! hahaha And I somewhere I read a restatement of Logos' commitment of keeping their software backward compatible as far as books are concerned.

It would be a SHAME not to have a Bibliography report in Logos 4!!! In Logos 3 I have always kept an up-to-date one (as well as my Account Summary) in pdf format. It is most valuable of associating names and book files. I can't believe they won't include this feature in Logos 4!!!

So is there any way the force my Win 7 install to recognize my LIX/LSF books without reinstalling Logos 3 first?

That's been a pet peeve of mine for the same reason.  For some reason they do NOT want you to be able to print out a list of your library for comparison purposes.  You can't even get the courtesy of an answer from Bob or anyone else as to WHY NOT.

copy the files you know are missing on to an external drive.

Type into your Win7 intall's command bar "Scan e:\path\to\resources"

Close. restart.

Thanks Damian - I'll give it a shot.

I don't think that's true. Bob's shown good interest in getting the bibliographic report back. See here and here.

Thanks Mark, for the information and the links.  It's so hard to keep up with all the posts now with so many on so many subjects.

Thanks again Damian - that did the trick.

Is there an exhaustive list of commands can be used in the command bar??? Seems like Logos 4 is designed to be run from there, as there is very little of a user interface (like a "Menu" bar) to navigate from...

Huh. And, I've got one too (Logos Bible Software Instant Expert Guide), with a Logos address on Fidalgo Ave, in Oak Harbor. (I had to look at it through notepad to figure out which resources it was).

I was going by something I read early on in the Beta process. These forums are too hard to search to find out if I was wrong, or just didn't get a new functionality that was added.

Okay, I was wrong. Not the first time, not the last.

(somebody pass me a slice of humble pie, please.)

God bless!!!

I'm having to re-download as we speak because that didn't work for me.
