Maybe I don't understand your question.

You don't log out of Lighworks, you close it (quit the application).

Is your friend not seeing projects that were made on this same computer? Perhaps they were made under a different user account at the OS level? Or maybe they're on a drive that's not connected?

It's hard to give specific advice because I can't see your computer screen from where I'm sitting.
post production is not an afterthought!

I may have an answer for you. Export an archive of his project onto an external drive. When given the option, make sure that both "Include local media" and "Include linked media" are checked.

Take the drive to your friend's computer and launch Lightworks. Don't go in to any project, but right click anywhere on the projects browser. From the drop down menu that appears choose "Restore project from archive.."

Not sure, but that sounds a little as if you believe LW is holding information remotely - a 'cloud' concept - accessible from anywhere by a log on/off process??

The log-on is only required to renew your Free licence every week - between renewals LW is a local application there is not log-on required just an application launch.

There is no Lightworks login logout procedure in the sense you mean it.
Is your friend logging onto your computer under a different user account?
If so you might have to create a desktop shortcut to start the program from his login.
If you want to provide him with his own project space there is an option to do this under the cogs menu on the projects screen.

Enabling multiple users each with their own project spaces and media locations requires upgrading to LW Pro.

Even if you work out a way of hiding or deleting your licence file to trigger a new logon to LW with your friends credentials he will be working in the same local project/media spaces as you use.

If it's a matter of wishing to restrict access to each other's work you may need to use project passwords - am not sure where that stands in V14 nor in Free as compared with Pro.
