I have some very good friends who are missionaries and BIble translators in Papua New Guinea. They make great use of Logos but don't have reliable internet access, and what they have is very expensive. 

Is there a way to send (via jump drive or external hard drive) an updated Logos engine to them to be able to upgrade their existing installs. Also, is there a way to send their whole library to them to install on a computer that is already there?

If they are really really good friends (I mean so good, that they would share their Logos password with you), you could set up a new Windows user on your machine for them, install L6 using their Logos credentials, download their library on it and let it index. Then you would follow the explanations from https://wiki.logos.com/Quick_Installation_onto_multiple_computers to generate a backup of the installation, send it over to them. They would follow those instructions to restore their L6 on the computer down in Papua New Guinea. So my theory.

For Windows the general principle can be found at https://wiki.logos.com/Quick_Installation_onto_multiple_computers#Method_1

Note that their ability to run Logos 6 is assumed (ignore Step 4)

  • Some (trusted) one would have to install their Logos 6 as normal and copy the Logos folder to an external drive
  • Include the offline executable for .NET 4.6
  • They will have to install .NET 4.6 if running Windows 7/8
  • They should run DXSetup from the \Logos\Install\Installers folder to enjoy Logos media.

For resource updates they will need a copy of the updated Logos\Data\random folder - just copy all the folders/files into their Logos\Data\random folder.

For software updates they will need the corresponding Logos.msi (32-bit) or Logos-x64.msi for 64 bit Logos.

Thank you...they are on Mac though. 

They would have no problem giving me their logos password to set it up for them.
