I have Mac version 4 running on my MacBook Pro.  I also have Parallels and Windows Pro 7 installed to run the PC version 4.1.  When there is an update of the program or if I download a new resource, when the installer asks to install the update, it quits the Mac version but then starts the PC version and installs the update there.  It will install the update when I restart the Mac version.  How do I keep the PC version from starting?

I have not had this problem, but you must have Windows running under Parallels for L4 Win to start. If you do not wish to quit Parallels, try hiding it while installing the update. I have used that technique to isolate one from the other.

I have to put Parallels in the Trash  every time I update Logos4Mac resources because of the same reason. Note that this only happens when updating resources, not when updating the application itself.

It started doing this once I installed the beta. I've posted twice before about this with no response.

This is not true.  Since L4 Win is associated with Parallels, it will start Parallels and Windows automatically if you double-click on the icon for L4 Win in the Finder (or apparently if the Logos Installer tries to start it).

Any Logos developers have any ideas here?

Thanks for the tip.  I'll try this as a workaround until someone from Logos solves this. (hint hint!)

Wonder about changing Parallels virtual machine configuration:

http://download.parallels.com/desktop/v6/docs/en/Parallels_Desktop_Users_Guide/

Introduction

+ Configuring the Virtual Machine

++ Options

Security Settings (e.g. Isolate Mac from Windows) OR Application Settings (e.g. Share Windows applications with Mac)
