View Full Version : Can't open Mastercook!
01-02-2005, 05:14 PM
I can't open my Mastercook version 6.2. It worked fine yesterday but today I got a runtime error message, that the program was improperly shut down. I ran a virus scan, no virus. I uninstalled Mastercook and tried to reinstall it but still have the same message. I tried doing a system restore to an earlier point but that didn't help either. All of the other programs seem to work fine.
Anyone have any ideas how to fix it?

I don't have the answer. But I do have a couple of links that you can go to that offer excellent help.

Yahoo MasterCook Discussion Board (http://groups.yahoo.com/group/MastercookDiscussion/)
Hope you get your problem fixed. I can't imagine being without my MC!!

I'm not an expert, either, but I've had that happen.:(
One of the things I had to do was to go in to "exploring" and delete all leftover MC files. For some reason when you uninstall, everything doesn't get deleted.

I did what you suggested Chocolate Rose and that worked. I can't seem to find my latest files anymore though. It seems that in trying to get the recipes back from the backup file I had created, it copied 3 sets of folders one inside the other. Don't ask me how I managed that, but I did. I know my latest files are in there somewhere, so I will have to search around to see where O where I put those latest folders. At least now Mastercook is working. The back up I used was about 1 1/2 months old, so I still have a lot of my recipes. I still haven't mastered the art of the back up. I just may have to upgrade to version 8 which apparently makes it a lot easier.
Thanks so much all of you for your input.
