New machine here, works great. Love it. No probs (since I dumped the idiotic McAfee). Bibleworks 9 is installed and did so without a hitch. Not so, Logos 4.
Oh it installed well enough. And then it proceeded to hog resources (updating and indexing for half the day) and now that it’s done with all that when I attempt to start it, it crashes. Every time. After restarting as well. I’m miffed and I have to admit it.
I hope there’s a fix. I’ve written but no response yet.
UPDATE: I’ve uninstalled it in frustration and am reinstalling it… which requires another 1.94gb download followed by hours of indexing. If that doesn’t do it I’ll just uninstall it and forget about it.
UPDATE II: I’ve finished (it took all night) reinstalling and indexing and all the rest. Unfortunately the things I’ve purchased and received for review are gone. No Dead Sea Scrolls Bible (this miffs me even more), no Luther’s Works, no BHS/NA27, and no Reformation Reader along with loads of other stuff. Farewell Erasmus’ Works, etc. And now, having restarted the machine and opened the program, the ‘preparing the library’ bit is once again taking forever. ‘This may take a while’ is an understatement but must it do so every time I want to use it? Good grief. If I ever hear back on how to get back what I’ve lost, I’ll update again.
UPDATE III: And now, after sitting for an hour waiting for ‘preparing your library’ to stop running, Logos has managed to crash yet again. All I can say is, thank God I have actual books. If I had to rely on electronic books I think I’d throw myself off a cliff in despair.
UPDATE IV: Finally, success. Not being the sort to quit, I attempted one more run and it actually worked. With all materials in place. Might I suggest that if you wish to spare yourself all the agony and annoyance I’ve experienced, make sure McAfee is no where near your computer when you install Logos 4.
