Speeding up Logos on Windows

Recent updates to Logos Bible Software for Windows have included an additional feature to speed up the platform’s load time. Users with hard disk (rather than solid-state) drives will notice the biggest improvements. For the present, the feature requires a manual action after each software update, but there are plans to roll this action into the update process in the future to eliminate the additional step.

Instructions and details can be found in this forum thread. On a suggestion that I came across in one of the forums, I’ve created a batch file and then linked to that file from the Logos bookmarks bar to simplify reapplying the enhancement. So, in the batch file, I have:

“[%Path to Logos.exe%]\Logos.exe” /ngen
rem “[%Path to Logos.exe%]\Logos.exe” /unngen

The second line does nothing since it’s currently a remark (“rem”). But, moving the “rem” notation from the second line to the first line and then rerunning the batch file would remove the enhancement if ever that were needed.
