Does the Oxford Bible Commentary Paperback still include Libronix CD-ROM?

I was lucky enough to get an unopened Logos 2.0 and a CD-ROM version of the Oxford Bible Commentary several years ago.  I was able to install them under Windows XP, upgrade to Libronix 3.0, and sync my licenses, which triggered the download from Logos' servers of the new resources, including OBC and BAGD.  The resource link for the OBC is logosres:oxbibcom.  It is classified as a Logos Research Edition, and it works like any other study Bible.

I was noticing that on the Amazon page for The Oxford Bible Commentary paperback, the description includes the following:

"The OBC features a Logos Library System CD-ROM that, once unlocked, gives the reader access to its text and that of the New Revised Standard Version Bible. The CD is fully compatible with all Logos products."

I wonder if this is still the case.

If this is indeed the case, one could install it, export the license file, and send it to Logos customer service for them to unlock it under your account.

If Libronix CD has a serial number, then can associate resource licenses with your Faithlife account using => https://www.logos.com/redeem

I don’t think they did back then, but it may have.

The 2013 edition is still advertised by OUP as coming with that Libronix CD: https://global.oup.com/academic/product/the-oxford-bible-commentary-9780199277186?cc=us&lang=en&#

I have had the Oxford Commentary in my library since probably about 2008, when I grabbed a CD with it from a software remainder place online, and it has probably been my first one volume commentary since more often than not. So I really hope it works for you.

That said, I read the blurb above differently - namely that they were including a CD with the book locked, with an offer that you can unlock it - and I assumed there was an additional fee to do so. I hope I was reading that wrong, and it includes a code to unlock it for free. Logos did work with some publishers to do that back then.
