This should be very simple to do and simple to find either on the Logos FAQ etc. or the WIKI.  Not!  At least, I cannot find it.

There is the unsupported way to install L4 on a second computer but I cannot find the supported way.  Is the following link current?  Does it every change?  All Logos said in their FAQ was to use the link provided in the email you receive after purchasing.  And that was months ago...

Joan,

Yes...that link works...the only thing the "unsupported way" did was to allow you to NOT redownload resources a second time but to transfer them via memory stick or whatever... downloading them again is time consuming...

Otherwise...Logos has all of your settings, licenses, and such stored and it's just a matter of running the exe file you have...and sitting back...

When it's done....it will look and act just like your other install...

Thanks, Robert.  Two thoughts I have.  One, why would I want to do something to my system that isn't supported by Logos (I understand it saves time..but Logos doesn't back it).  I'm conservative in every area of my life. I understand why others would go the easier route.  Second, I think this link should be posted somewhere on the Logos website so it can be found easily and denoted the supported way.  IMHO.  Thanks!  And Happy New Year.

Joan, its primaraly for those with huge libraries that dont want to download 8+GB each time they reinstall

I reinstall my testing PC every other week, call me sad, but for me without it I would not bother installing L4 on the machine

Never Deprive Anyone of Hope.. It Might Be ALL They Have

These folks were in rural areas with only dial up or in overseas sites where they were almost paying $$$ by the "byte.

It was very, very costly and there fore some of them (DAve!) created this "work-a-round.

Logos are committed to the "cloud". But they provided the scan command so we could import resources into L4, so the safest way is Method 3 at http://wiki.logos.com/Quick_Installation_onto_multiple_computers. It avoids re-downloading but not indexing.
