I am wondering how long I will be able to continue using my Wordsearch library until I will have to start using the Logos app?

I think the best reply is to read the FAQ on the Logos site. There it states that there will be no further development of Wordsearch. From that I gather that it will continue to work until some operating system update breaks it. (I think you are secure for awhile.)

We have no plans to make the Wordsearch application stop working, although we don't plan to create and ship any more updates to it (e.g., to improve compatibility with new OS versions).

At some point, the Wordsearch web services will be discontinued and you may get errors (when starting the program) about being unable to check for updates. Our understanding is that you can go to Options > Settings > Internet, and select "No, do not use any Internet features" and then keep using the program offline indefinitely.

You should keep backups of your system so you can restore the program and books if you have a system failure. Eventually, the download site for Wordsearch and its resources will be discontinued and you will not be able to reinstall it from the Internet.

I have just had a hard drive crash which had Wordsearch installed on it. The computer tech tells me the drive must be wiped and that he cannot copy my programs from the drive back onto it after he wipes it. He says he can copy the documents, etc. back onto the wiped drive, but not the programs themselves. Where do I go to reinstall Wordsearch?

While this won’t help in recovering your program (and I pray you are successfu), might I suggest a disk cloning program in the future to preserve your programs and data? Some reliable free ones exist (I use Macrium for example). In the case of a catastrophic failure, you can get everything back to the point you last backed up.

I was able to still download the install file from the Wordsearch web site. Whether or not it'll download your files (books, notes etc.) again, I don't know.

1. Go to www.wordsearchbible.com 

2. Sign into your account (Top Right)

3. Click "My Account"

4. Click "My Downloads"

If the answer to your question isn't in Rick's post above you may need to expand the question.

I have noticed the Lifeway licenses are now gone from the Wordsearch desktop app and the Lifeway licensed books now show as locked.

You can also see locked books in Library>Manage library
