If you have questions about Logos 4, you’ll find answers to many of them in our three FAQs:

If you don't find answers to your questions in the FAQs,

  1. watch our training videos at www.logos.com/videos and the growing number of user-created videos,
  2. read the articles at www.logos.com/support, www.logos.com/training, and at the Logos blog,
  3. explore the Logos wiki, and especially the FAQ,
  4. or try searching the forums.

If you still can't find answers, please start a new thread in the appropriate forum. If another user doesn't beat us to it, we'll do our best to answer your questions as soon as possible.

Can this post be locked in place at the top of the forum for ready access. This is a time saver. I, and I suspect others, will be coming back to this post often.

Thanks

Larry

It is set to stick to the top for 3 months, so it should appear at the top when people navigate to the Logos 4 forum directly. We can keep it up longer than that if necessary.

These special FAQs help. for the life of me I can't figure out why they aren't posted on the main support page and one has to go to the forums to find them. To me this is poor marketing and support.  These FAQs finally said that my current resources will work with Logos 4. It was not at all clear before. It is still not clear and my questions have not been answered as to if I can purchase new resources  (particularly for download) that will run under Logos 3.  I also am mystified by an apparent requirement  for 20 gigs of HD space for LOGOS 4 under WIN 7. To me this,if the numbers are correct , suggests a bloated program.

 

I have no intention upgrading to WIN 7 untl one of my computers actually dies so it does not seem that there is any reason to upgrade to Logos 4.

I would like to know that any new resources that I might buy will run under V3.  I guess I will just wait and see what happens.

 

I have been happy with Logo/Libronix 3  and have encouraged friends to buy it but I do think that this launch could have been managed much better.

They are on the main support page and have been, though I just added the brand new one.

Ask away. I'm happy to try to clear it up.

StephenAMorris:

Downloadable books and collections for the next several months will work on Logos 3 (and Logos for Mac 1) and Logos 4.

Nope. We're just giving you that much great content. :) Keep in mind that Platinum is 8GBs and that your index will be several GBs. If you have existing resources, which it sounds like you do, you're looking at even more GBs. 20GBs is a pretty conservative average. My Logos 4 folder has 88GBs of data in it, but that's with 10,000+ resources.

StephenAMorris:

I don't understand how these are related. Logos 4 doesn't require Windows 7. It will run fine on Vista and XP SP3. There are lots of reasons to upgrade to Logos 4, even if you don't plan to switch to the Logos 4 engine quite yet. You can get hundreds of new books at incredible discounts and run the majority of them on Logos 3.

StephenAMorris:

Any new resources that you buy will run on Logos 3. If that's not the case for future resources, we'll make that clear.

StephenAMorris:

So do we. :) We were working around the clock to hit the deadline and would have loved more time. Thanks for your patience and understanding as we continue to make things better.

Phil,

Thanks (seems appropriate to say to y'all down south on the eve of the 4th Thurs of Nov.) for putting this up here and on the support page. These are very useful and will reduce the "traffic" on these forums. Some of the 1K and 2K guys must have been wearing out their keyboards responding to queries - there certainly are several FAQs.

Have a great holiday - y'all deserve it!

Chris

Don't be. It's the work computer. His own has a much more modest dimension.

Is there such a thing as "The Logos 4 Guide for Logos 3 Users"? In other words, some kind of organized list of the features and function of L3 and how they are now mapped to, integrated in, and renamed within L4? Most of the tutorials and examples I've come across are geared for first-time users. Are there no materials devoted to assisting long-time L3 users to see the relationship between how things once worked versus now? The list of "new features' is so generic as to be of little benefit. Thanks.

Jon and Joan, I blogged about user-created videos today and have added a link to them in the original post in this thread. Thanks for the suggestion!

If you still can't find answers,

 

Thanks Phil, this is very helpful and will go along way to helping many. May I suggest that if someone orders an L4 DVD, that the links to these sites be included with the DVD as well as a strong encouragement to look at the links before installing...

As well, I would suggest (if not already done) that the website be very clear to anyone interested in purchasing,,,that they look at the FAQ before buying.

Edi,

You can simply get the L4 engine for free. http://downloads.logos.com/LBS4/LDLS4Installer/Logos4Setup.exe ou This will install and then download your L3 Scholars resources in L4 format (those that are and the rest in L3 format until they are converted) and then index them. You have to download them again, because they are in a different format and go to a different directory and are indexed on your machine.

Or you can get the crossgrade and get the basic new things designed for L4. Bob recommends you do this at least to get the most out of L4 without upgrading to Silver, Gold, Platinum or Portfolio.

You can read all that I just wrote, in Phil's words, in the last FAQ of the General FAQs, which is the purpose of this thread. I would suggest you read what's out there first.

Chris

Are you running this as an administrator? This is required for 1st time installation.
