Richard wrote a batch file to help with this. I just put up a minor improvement to it find Logos in which ever directory it's in. See: https://community.logos.com/forums/p/93262/648377.aspx#648377 

Save it to disk. Rename it to remove the ".txt" extension. and then run it. HTH.

I copied and pasted the contents to notepad, then removed the .txt extension and saved it.  I then found where I saved it and right-clicked on it and chose "open" (I also tried "run as administrator"). The cmd box opened and said "registering Logos". Logos then opened.  I then opened Microsoft Word 10, typed in a full biblical reference, and right clicked it, but there were no additional options to copy bible verses.  I am running Windows 7.  This was working fine in Logos 5 before upgrading.  Any ideas?

There are some additional instructions here that may apply:

 https://wiki.logos.com/Smart_Tags#Smart_Tags_and_64-bit_Logos  

Note the need to check the existence of certain registry entries, and the need to delete some. (Backup your registry or those keys before deleting.)

OK, I have run the batch program to no avail, and I have checked the registry for the values listed.  I cannot find the first registry value 

  1. Does “HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\CLSID\{319A0316-DF84-4B3C-8117-349B7E98E613}” exist? I cannot find this value in this directory                If not, run C:\Path\To\Logos5\Logos.exe /register from a Command Prompt (note that your installation folder could be \Logos4).  I have tried to run this in the command prompt, for my machine it is C:\Users\MYUSERNAME\APPDATA\Local\Logos4\System\Logos.exe/register. When I run it, it opens Logos 6, but when I go back to look for this value, I do not find it.

#2 says: Does “HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\Wow6432Node\CLSID\{319A0316-DF84-4B3C-8117-349B7E98E613}” exist? If so, delete it.  I did find this value, but I am afraid to delete it if the first value is not found.

#3 says the value listed should exist and contain the path to the 64 bit LogosCom.exe - This is correct

#4 lists a value that does exist, but again, I'm a little scared to delete it with out the first value being present.

I work on computers a bit, but am no programmer.  It would be nice to have a fix for this that is a little less technical for us non-programmers. (Run C:\path\to\logos5\logos.exe/register from a command prompt is not as clear as it could be for non-programmers who have been accustomed to WYSIWYG in Windows).

Am I missing something?

Note that you need a space between Logos.exe and /register.

Lee Webb:
Does “HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\Wow6432Node\CLSID\{319A0316-DF84-4B3C-8117-349B7E98E613}” exist? If so, delete it.  I did find this value, but I am afraid to delete it if the first value is not found.

Understood. From within regedit, you can back up this key and restore it later, if you need to. Give it a name to help you remember it. It should save with a "reg" extension on the end of the file. (Same goes for the #4 concern)

Lee Webb:

Agreed. However, it should be noted that Logos doesn't support smarttags anymore, and Microsoft is deprecating them as well (meaning they've left them in, but they may go away any time).

Tess,

Are having trouble following the directions given here, a lack of success even when following them, or are you wanting to "bump" this for some other reason?

Hi Richard,thank you for responding , I have no reason to Bump it but I am having difficulty to understand it, is there a way of making it clearer for me,perhaps if it is possible to show me in a detail way such as screenshot?

Blessings in Christ.

You should first download, rename and run the batch file Randy Sims uploaded (see the link above to the other forum discussion which has that batch file and directions for using it.)

If that doesn't work, further directions are here:  https://wiki.logos.com/Smart_Tags#Smart_Tags_and_64-bit_Logos 

They do require a bit of understanding. First you can access the Windows registry using the command regedit. In Windows 7, click on the start button and type regedit into the search bar and choose regedit.ext from the list that appears. This will open your registry.

Your registry is divided into several areas. You should see HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT as the first of those. To the left is an arrow that allows you to expand/collapse this area (usually called a "key"). From that list you should see CLSID as another area - sort of like finding your way through a series of directories in Windows Explorer.

There are four registry entries to either confirm or delete, as directed in the wiki. I recommend backing registry entries before deleting or changing them (right-click on the registry entry and choose "Export," then save it where you can find it and give it a name that will help you remember what it is.)

(I'm sorry, but I don't have time to do all the screen shots it would take to be complete here. I hope this is enough.)

Thank you Richard for taking time  to help me, I have to look for someone to help me to do it in the way you have discribed it.

Hi I'm a friend of Tes,

I am a Computer Science student so I have good technical understanding.

I followed your instruction to the latter but Smart Tags are still not visible in Word.

He has Windows 7 64bit and Office 2010 32bit.

I would appreciate any further help/instructions.

Blessings in Christ.

See Randy's next post, below.

  1. Go to Control Panel -> Programs. Right-Click "Logos Bible Software", and select Repair. This will restore any deleted registry keys.
  2. Right click on this file: 3323.LBSSmrtTgFix.bat.txt, save it to your desktop, rename it to delete the ".txt" extension. It should now end with a ".bat" extension. Double click that file and you should see: a command box open, Logos will open or activate, an dialog will indicate that RegSvr completed successfully.
  3. Everything should now work. If it does not, make sure you have Word configured to enable Smart Tags. Follow the directions in the section "Office 2010" in the article: https://www.logos.com/articleviewer/530

Save it to disk. Rename it to remove the ".txt" extension. and then run it. HTH.

For me, just REMOVING the txt extension wouldn't allow it to run as a batch file. Nor could I run as an administrator with no file extension. I had to REPLACE the .txt extension with a .bat extension. It runs FINE now, and THANKS!!! for helping me to remember long forgotten windows commands, batch files, etc.

Blessings!

Grace & Peace,
Bill

The batch file below now echos the wiki. It will perform all the actions as suggested in the wiki article on Smart Tags.

5657.LBSSmrtTgFix.zip

Save the above zip file, extract "LBSSmrtTgFix.bat", and double click to run it.

NOTE: If Logos is running it will be closed.

EDIT: Updated batch file with corrections.

I've now had a chance to try this out on a few more computers. The process that seems to work in all cases I've tried is as above. I've made a few quick changes and codified this in the batch file so it is now a single operation:

0333.LBSSmrtTgFix.bat.txt

Save the above file, rename it to "LBSSmrtTgFix.bat", double click to run it.

NOTES: 1) If Logos is running it will be closed. 2) Make sure that Microsoft Word is closed before running or the repair may fail; you will then need to reboot and run the batch file again.

Randy, I have windows 8.1, after I click "repair" Logos Bible Software, I double click the file that you provided, all it does is open a Notepad window on the desktop...back in the good old days of regular "windows" I could do just about anything I wanted in regedit, but I can't even find it is 8.1...so I would appreciate some instructions if you can help. Thanks :)

You probably have Windows set to the default option of Hiding File Extensions which makes it difficult to rename some file extensions. I've changed the file in my original post above to a zip file. Just download the zip file, unzip the single batch file from it, and double click on the extracted file to run it.
