Hi, I was wondering if someone could tell me why Logos 8 won't install onto a Windows 8 PC. I installed a SSD in months ago in place of the old WD HDD and i keep getting a message saying "Logos bible software requires Windows to be fully updated. Please install system updates."  Everything else runs fine and windows says its up to date. I have tried to find an earlier version of Logos to see if it would install, then update to latest Logos from there, but can't find any earlier program. I appreciate any help here. Thanks. Jeff

Welcome Big Smile

Curious about Windows 8 version ?

Logos Help Center (LHC) includes Logos Minimum System Requirements for Windows: 7 SP1, Windows 8.1, and Windows 10 "Anniversary Update" (1607) or later.

In February 2020, minimum software requirements are scheduled to change for Logos 8.11+ => ANNOUNCEMENT: End of support for Windows 7, Windows 8.1 & MacOS 10.11–10.13 (Faithlife will no longer test Logos 8.11+ on Windows 8.1 so has no idea what will be the last usable Logos 8 release for Windows 8.1 in 2020)

Thanks...it's windows 8 not 8.1 if that's what you mean. Also the reason I haven't gone to 8.1 is due to other

software on my machine which will have comparability issues if I update the OS.  I'm just stalling as long as possible

before I inevitably have to update the OS and other expensive software.

While delaying Windows OS update, may want to use web app => https://app.logos.com

FYI: personally used Right Click on Taskbar => Toolbars => Desktop (to enable Desktop on Taskbar as a work around for Start Menu not being in Windows 8 and 8.1)

Windows 10 version 1909 has Dark Mode option for Personalization of Colors (in Settings).
