Supported

Supported (current generation) applications receive the following: free online updates, all bug fixes, new features, access to the latest resources and data sets, ability to synchronize documents and settings, and come with access to our online support knowledge base as well as full email and telephone support.

Supported versions may require newer operating system versions in order to stay current. To pursue support for your current generation software, please use the following options:


Maintenance

Maintenance versions receive free updates online and can read the latest textual resources, but may not support newer data sets and features. They can sync documents and settings, will get critical bug fixes1, and have full email and telephone support. Maintenance versions may run on older operating system versions, but may not receive new features or access to new data sets.

 

To pursue support for your maintenance software, please use the following options:


Unsupported

Unsupported versions do not receive updates and may not have access to the latest resource files. Web services that are only used by unsupported versions may be discontinued without notice. Documents and settings created in an unsupported version may not sync to the latest versions of the software.

Telephone and email support are unavailable or extremely limited, but you can still request help in the forums. You may be required to update before receiving assistance.


Frequently Asked Questions

Q: Where can I download Logos from?

A: You can install Logos by following the instructions here.

 

I still have an older version of Logos...

Q: Do I have to buy Logos?
A: By opening the app, whether on desktop, mobile, or the web, the newer, free version of Logos will automatically unlock. If you already have Logos 9 downloaded, you need to make sure that you have automatic updates turned on for the free version to automatically unlock. If you have Logos 8 or earlier, Logos will not automatically update to the new version. Instead, you'll need to download the installer from Logos.com.

Note: This free download contains a limited number of new features, resources, and books on an "access-only" basis. This means you can access them but you do not own them permanently. Consider a Base Package Upgrade.

Q: Will I lose anything I already own if I update?
A: No. Updating versions of Logos never results in losing books or other resources.

 

I have an older version of Windows or Mac OS X...

Q: Will Logos work on my computer?
A: Older operating systems (such as Windows XP or Vista, Mac OS X 10.15) do not support the newer software. You will need to upgrade your operating system or computer to something more current to use Logos.

Q: Can I still use an unsupported version of Logos?
A: Because of changes to SSL versions of Logos before Logos 7.19 will not be able to connect to our servers. This will result in not being able to use Logos online.

 


1 While operating systems and versions of Logos will continue to receive the same updates other versions of Logos receive, updates, we will no longer test the application on these operating systems, nor deliver bug fixes that exclusively affect them.
