Every time I start Logos 5 I get a notice that it wants to install an update.  The error message I get is:

The program or feature

"\??\C:\Users\J\AppData\Local\Logos5\Data\gshnp3mg.udu\UpdateManager\Installers\2954\LogosSetup.ex" cannot start or run due to incompatibility with 64-bit versions of Windows. Please contact the software vender to ask if a 64-bit Windows compatible version is available."

So how do I get this download to stop trying to install?  How do I get the program to start updating with 64-bit updates again like it was intitally.

I am not aware of a 64 bit version of logos. How are you being notified of available updates?

Welcome to the forums James! Sorry you are having troubles. Tongue Tied

I am not a windows user, so please forgive me if this is a dumb suggestion... I remember some other users talking about "compatibility mode" being turned on (or off?). Is it possible that you have changed this setting somewhere? 

Logos doesn't currently have a 64bit application due to incompatibility of some of the non-logos code.

Alabama and Fred are right - there is no 64 bit version. However I don't think compatibility mode would help as that facilitates usability with older versions of windows, not fewer or greater bits.

All that said, my computer is x64, and I run the 32 bit Logos software just fine...

Did you try to make it install somewhere other than the default? IE the %root%/program files/ folder instead of the default /users/(username here)/app data/local/logos5 ?

there are two program files folders under an x64 installation of windows. One for 32 bit software and one for x64 - the standard /program files/ folder is for x64 bit software, and the other program files folder (/program files (x86)/) is your 32bit program files folder...

Though if you are simply trying to make it install to the default location, or if this is an update, none of that applies :)

My best guess is that the setup program is corrupted in such a way that Windows thinks it's a 16-bit program (it's not). I suggest just downloading the latest installer directly from here: https://www.logos.com/installation

Once the latest version is installed, you should no longer get a prompt to update.
