Fixing problems with Windows Installer keys for Logos


You may receive the following errors when attempting to update or reinstall Logos Bible Software:

  • "The feature you are trying to use is on a network resource that is unavailable."
  • "Another version of this product is already installed.  Installation of this version cannot be continued. To configure or remove existing version of this product, use add/remove program in control panel."


These errors occur because the Windows Installer did not remove all the Logos entries from your registry or those registries have been corrupted. You can use the Microsoft Fix-it Tool to remove the registry entries that are causing the problem.
