Honestly, if it was a software bug, then it would be with your current version, which would mean you would want to update.  With that said, my Surface tablet automatically downloaded while my desktop would not.  I just used the link.

I just wanted to highlight a problem to the devs. Big Smile

I know how to get out of tough spots. But I'd much rather everything proceeded naturally and organically...

I just ran the update script posted, and the software installed but the version is still

Logos Bible Software 5.2 SR-6 (5.2.0.0136), the same as before with the same results. No update to

Logos 5.2a (5.2.1.0067)

Tried again with the installation from the web site. This time it worked.

There is a problem with the link in the post, or with the file at amazon.

Now, after I finally got the program updated, it updated the Databases. Pretty squirrelly!!

Naturally and organically, that's the way...

Love the improvements to the Library window!

As well as the wider Find box (yes!), the new columns (Last Accessed and Most Used), and the Title view, I think it has finally solved the problem of partial columns being displayed blank in Details view--a long-lasting issue in Logos 4 and 5. (It seems to be overcoming it by doing some kind of forced refresh as a second step.)

Also, if I click on the LastUpdated column heading, it sorts that way without needing me to drag the vertical scrollbar to the top. And it remembers the last sort when I re-open the Library window. Between that and not having to drag column widths to see Author etc, this is a serious time-saver. Smile

Thanks

My problem was resolved after playing around with the registry. Not sure what happened there. Probably Windows 8 related.

We are aware of the situation and are working on a solution. For the record I was pretty disappointed that my personal copy of Logos didn't update when I got home yesterday... Sad

We'll post an update when we have more information.

Dylan Rondeau:
When adding tags to resources, common tags will now be suggested as you type. Existing user tags will be in bold.

Dylan Rondeau:
Tags are now hyperlinked, and will filter the Library for resources with that tag when clicked. Clicking a tag in the Resource Panel Info pane will open the Library with that filter.

Thanks Logos for the latest update.  I like the improvements of the Library.  Though not mentioned in the update, I also like the ability to re-name a tag and apply the change to every resource that has the tag.

Exactly how much of a situation are you aware of? I had serious problems getting it to install once it had downloaded.

Mine installed after I reverse-clicked the settings automatic update (which had started out as automatic).

Depending on when your machine checked for updates, the automatic update may not have worked. This problem should now be fixed.

Sorry for the hassle!

I was specifically referring to the download issues that many users were having. What were the install issues you were seeing? (Or perhaps there's another thread I've not yet seen)

No, I hadn't gotten around to writing about it yet, since after all it installed in the end, which solved the problem for me.

After I managed to get the download, I clicked to install. Logos closed, but never opened again. I opened it manually, and found that I still had the RC. All in all, I think I clicked twice on the install message in Logos, twice on the one in the menu bar, and at least twice on the one in a popup, and except for the last time, it either closed without opening, opened to the old version, or did nothing in particular. 

And when I finally got it to install, I managed to type two letters in the Library find box before it hang, forcing me to force quit. 

Seems to work now, though. (Apart from all the bugs I reported in the RC, and provided everything goes well with the download I just see is waiting for me.)

Sad that the Tag recognition stuff is not working when multiple volumes are selected.....

When it asks if I want to install the new update, I click "yes" - and part way through the process, says: 

Warning 1909: Could not create Shortcut Logos Bible Software 5.lnk. Verify the destination folder exists and that you can access it. 

Then I get the error 2902. 

Any thoughts? If I skip it, Logos5 opens fine and performs fine otherwise.

OK - just got worse. Tried the update from the link above, and now it won't install or let me open L5. Stuck and NEED help.

Dylan Rondeau:

My Library

   Added “Last Accessed” and “Most Used” columns to the Library Details view. They show the last date a resource was opened and order your resources by most frequently used, respectively.

The changes are great, but how does Most Used figure out what I use most? The majority of my resources say I have used them 48 times. Sorting by this isn't helping me. It's pulling up my books from the Perseus Classics Collection and from the Biblical Dead Sea Scrolls database first. All of them say I have used them 48 times (even though many of the works here I have not opened yet).

UPDATE: oops. I see. 1 is most used and 48 is least used. Now it makes sense.

Hi Reid

Does the discussion at http://community.logos.com/forums/t/58976.aspx help?

I suggest you restart the computer for this as the Warning 1909 doesn't prevent Logos from being updated (it can be fixed by unpinning / re-pinning Logos to the taskbar).

The Error 2902 is related - see this thread for a more technical discussion/fix if restarting the computer doesn't work.
