About Logos Library Reporter (LLR)

LLR (Logos Library Reporter) is a free Window's program that allows you to track changes to your Logos/Verbum library. You will use the Read Catalog tab to read current Logos/Verbum Library information and store it in LLR’s database (Saved Catalog DB). Logos/Verbum library information is stored in a catalog database which LLR copies from your Logos/Verbum installation. The LLR program refers to your library info as a Catalog. As your library information changes you will use LLR to get fresh copies of your catalog and store them in its database.

You need not worry about LLR disturbing your Logos/Verbum catalog database. LLR gets a copy of this database file from your Logos/Verbum installation. LLR only uses this copied file which resides in LLR’s working folder. LLR has built in precautions to prevent copying your database when it detects that Logos/Verbum is running or its indexer is running. When LLR detects this state you will receive a warning window telling you that LLR could not copy the database and asks you to close Logos/Verbum and click LLR’s Read DB button again.

Once you have added one or more catalogs to LLR’s database you can then run Reports on those catalogs. In the Reports tab you will find that there are 2 types of reports available to be performed on your Saved Catalogs: 1) reports done on a Single catalog and 2) reports done between Two catalogs. This is detailed in the Reports area of this manual.

Since there is only 1 catalog file in your Logos/Verbum installation, then each time that Logos/Verbum updates information for your library it overwrites the old information. So when you use LLR’s Read DB to get a fresh copy the catalog, that information is only relevant to the current state of your library. This is why you need to periodically get a fresh copy of the catalog and save it into LLR’s database. LLR keeps track of each catalog in its database by the Date/Time that was on the catalog file that it just read. So each entry in your LLR database will have a unique Date/Time.

Uninstalling or Updating the program

This program is a Click-Once application. Such applications have security controls embedded in them which make it complicated to update the application. Windows requires that the installer come from the Exact same location as its predecessor. In such cases if you installed from a Zipped version and are installing from the new web installer, you will need to use Window's Control Panel Programs and Features to uninstall the old version of LLR prior to installing the newer version. Don't worry, none of your data will be lost when you uninstall LLR, it is kept in your Documents folder in LLR's unique folder.

After you have installed using the new web installer you should not need to use the Control Panel to uninstall LLR before updating in the future.
