I have a paid for account with Logos 5 and want to transfer it to my {new} computer.

How do I do this?

I do not want to upgrade or anything. I am very happy with Logos 5 just the way it is.

Thank you!

Installing Logos Bible Software 5

Simplest thing is download and sign in and all your files will automatically download and install. Any personal books you have will not download since they are on your old computer and not stored offline in general. Althernatively you can copy the files as outlined here:

PS:Logos engine 7 is free to download and may be more stable than 5, as long as your computer can handle it using 7 with your current 5 library would be advised. But that is your choice.

I would follow Dan's recommendation that you get the free update to version 7. Version 5 is no longer supported, and there have been many improvements and bug fixes since. You'll still be able to access everything you already own, and it works in just the same way.

To get the update, go here: https://www.logos.com/product/136022/basic

Welcome Big Smile

Does "new" computer have 32 bit or 64 bit operating system ? Suggest using Logos that matches operating system.

Logos 5.2b SR-11 was the last 32 bit only release (on Tue 11 Aug 2015). For Windows, Logos 7 has 32 bit variant for use on 32 bit operating system.

I'd trade an L5 for an L7 any day of the week. Hold on to your L5 until it dies (or you like some L7 features).

L5 was a speed demon compared to bloated L7.  Actually, I don't think it's the L7 bloat. I suspect they chose some poor trade-offs in the buffering scheme. It's almost neck and neck with molassas4 on larger layouts.
