If this is the first time you've installed Libronix on any computer, the serial number you were provided may already be in use. In either case, please call Customer Support at (800) 875-6467 or send an email to support@logos.com, and provide them with your full name, email address, Customer ID, and the product serial number.

  4. Are there any known issues with Libronix in Vista?
  5. What are my Customer ID and Confirmation Code, and where do I find them?
    • Your Libronix Customer ID is either the email address you entered when you first activated your account or an auto-generated LBXUSER number assigned to your account (if an email address was not provided). Your Confirmation Code is an auto-generated, 20-character, alpha-numeric code attached to your Customer ID only.
       
    • You can find these codes in the Account Summary report (Tools | Library Management | Account Summary) or under Help | About Libronix DLS.

  8. Why did I get an Unlocking Error with my online purchase?
    • You most likely received the "unlocking error" because there is a missing or incorrect Libronix Customer ID in your Logos.com web account. Please call Customer Support at (800) 875-6467 or send an email to support@logos.com so we can unlock it for you. The Customer Support representative will enter your correct Libronix Customer ID in your web account so you do not have problems unlocking books in the future.

      Once the book has been unlocked, click on Tools | Library Management | Synchronize Licenses to install the license in Libronix. Then download the book file using the steps in question/answer #7 above.

      Click on Help | About Libronix DLS. The version number will be near the top next to 'Libronix Digital Library System'.
       
    • Why should I update?

      To keep up with changes (fixes and enhancements) to the Libronix DLS software engine, and to get the latest versions of addin modules, fonts, resources, etc.
       
    • How do I update?
      • Click on the Tools menu in Libronix and select 'Libronix Update'.  
        -OR-

    • When would I need to uninstall before installing an update?

      See question # 3 above.
       
    • What is the difference between an Update and an Upgrade?
      • An 'Update' includes changes (fixes and enhancements) to the Libronix DLS software engine and/or new versions of your currently-owned addin modules and resources, etc. An 'Update' can be downloaded at no charge using either of the two methods above.
      • An 'Upgrade' includes new books, addins, and features that you do not currently own. You can 'upgrade' to a larger collection or to a newer version of your current collection. For instance, if you own a 'Scholar's Library (ND)', you could upgrade to a 'Scholar's Library: Gold (ND)'. Or, if you own a pre-3.0 'Scholar's Library (RA or QB)', you could upgrade to a 3.0 'Scholar's Library (ND)'. An upgrade must be purchased, and a discount may be available. To see what 'upgrades/discounts' you qualify for, enter your Customer ID in the Upgrade Now! box.
