I have Logos 4 installed on the computer. The books appear to be stored in Logos4\Data\ayk4cbkc.1cm\ResourceManager\Resources. They have the  .logos4 file extension. I also have many gigabytes of resources from Libronix (which was a previous version of Logos software) on another computer. They have the .lbxlls file extension. I need to know how to transfer and use those resources in Logos 4. Should I simply automatically rename the extension of all the files from .lbxlls to .logos4 and then put them in Logos 4 folder (Logos4\Data\ayk4cbkc.1cm\ResourceManager\Resources)?

No, you can't rename the files.

You should type SCAN path\to\your\lbxlls\files, in Logos' command box. This assumes the Libronix installation is registered to the same email address as your Logos installation. If not, it won't work fully.

However, in the years since Libronix was released, most Libronix resources will have been updated by. Your Logos installation will download updates for those files, even if you've successfully scanned them.

Also, there's no good reason to use Logos 4 any more. We're on version 7 now, and software upgrades are free. To get version 7, go here: https://www.logos.com/product/136022/basic

Thank you for the information. The Logos 4 and Libronix resources which I have are not registered under my email address. Therefore, I can use them in Logos 4 as files on the disk and will not be able to download them.

Does the scan command which you have given work both in Logos 7 and Logos 4? Is it better to install Logos 7 and then run the scan of the files?
