Installing Logos 4 About Indexing

Note: You must have a Logos 4 Base Package for Logos 4 to function fully. If you do not already own a base package, please see 4 Ways to Get Logos 4.

Click here to learn more about what to expect when you’re installing Logos 4 from the internet. If you have download constraints, you may want to install your software by DVD (see Option #2). If you did not originally purchase the DVD version of the software, you can purchase a DVD for a nominal fee.

Option #1 Downloading Logos 4

Click here to download the installer.

  • If you receive a message with a yellow triangle asking for permission to proceed, click “Open”.
  • When the Logos4Mac.dmg file downloads, run it by double clicking on the smaller of the two Logos Bible Software 4 icons that appear in a separate window.
  • A window will appear stating “Logos Bible Software 4 needs to be copied into your Applications folder”. Click “Copy” to proceed.
  • The Logos icon will bounce on your dock and then a Sign In window will appear. Sign In to the program with your Logos.com email and password. (You can reset your password here if you don't know what it is.)

At this point, the newly installed program will begin with two lengthy processes:

  1. Preparing or downloading your library. This process requires internet connection as it is pulling up all of your past licenses and downloading the corresponding book files to your computer.
  2. Indexing your library. During this step, no internet connection is required, but the computer must not be turned off until it is complete (the computer may be on Sleep or Hibernate without disturbing the indexing process). 

After indexing is complete, Logos 4 will be completely configured and ready to use.

Option #2 Installing From Your DVD
