What is the procedure in changing computers (pc) and installing Logos? I assume I don't have to repurchase it?

Just go to the Logos support page and download the correct version PC or Mac. In the installation it will ask for you User ID and password. Then it will download all your books.

You can install on as many computers as you have. You do not have to repurchase.

Hi and welcome to the forums.

Better yet, if you are the one using Logos on more than one device, you can install Logos on every single one of them. No repurchase required under the terms of the license.

No, you don't have to repurchase it. You just reinstall from here (https://www.logos.com/install), and during the installation process, all the books you already own will automatically download and then index. It can take a while, hours, depending on how large your library is. There are also quicker ways to copy your installation over from your old hard disk (if it's still readable and Logos installation is working) to save time.

The link above (last time I used it) neglected to mention that after the scan, one must restart Logos for the scan to initiate.

You could edit it to fix that omission. In fact, why don't you? That's the beauty of wikis. Everyone can contribute. Smile

Why make the remark without checking whether it is true ("restart" has been there for at least four years).

ahh but it wasn't there this past fall. I can't speak to any time period before or after. I merely know that when I needed it, it wasn't there. Someone did tell me about that on the forums after I made a thread. You are welcome to find it if you like, I'm not interested in looking.

I actually don't know how, and haven't bothered trying to figure that out. Ironic since I spent time as a web designer. I suspect I could figure it out, but my interests lay elsewhere.
