I'm making a presentation to 400 people tomorrow, and demoing Logos a little. (This is an almost entirely untapped demographic, I promise :) )

Now, as I understand it, the version of the KJV that comes with the free Logos Basic, "The Holy Bible: King James Version (KJV)" does not support Lexicon Linking, as demo'ed here. Or at least, I can't get it to work. 

By contrast, the "King James Version (1900)" (and the included Lexham English Bible),  Lexicon linking works just fine. 


Are there any other free English translations that allow Lexicon Linking? Does it require interlinear coding, or just Strong's tagging?

I don't know the answer to your question, but a license to the 1900 version is included in the free Logos Basic.

Edit: Oh, I see. It's listed down under interlinears, but not under English Bibles.

It's confusing, but those "Reverse Interlinear" (RI) titles are datasets that allow lexicon linking. You must purchase the bible separately, though, if you don't have it (usually $9.99). The Logos 8 Basic includes the LEB (bible) and its RI's + the KJV 1900 and its RI's. So you should be able to do lexicon linking unless the product description is incorrect, and it is earlier KJV which does not allow lexicon linking (no RI's).
