I bought a new computer and the App says it's been moved.
After moving the App, alter your username slightly (from the orginal name you use to register), then re-enter your password.
I entered my password and it still says it's unregistered.
1. Most likely it's because you don't have the latest version
of the software you're trying to register.
2. If you're using OS X, you'll need to drag the software folder to your Applications folder.
3. After the software is running, go to "Scripts" then to "Register XXX" (XXX
represents the name of the software) and paste your password, then click the Register button.
Be sure not to copy any blank spaces before or after the password.
I registered but my Pull-Down Menus are still gray... After you register the software most of the pull-down menus will
still be dimmed. Adding, deleting, printing, etc. are all accomplished using the on-screen
buttons. All DFC software automatically saves the information as you type it - there's no need
for a Save Menu.
To recover a damaged file...
Mac: hold down the Command + Option keys immediately after running
Windows: hold down the Control + Shift keys immediately after running the application.
Most of DigitalFriedChicken's software uses Verdana for
on-screen display and prints with Times New Roman. Please make sure those two fonts reside
on your computer.
Protecting your information. Backup regularly. Hard Drive crashes, power failures and system
crashes are a fact of life. When this happens, any open file or program is vulnerable to damage
or corruption. Since operating environments are often unstable, your best defense is to back
up your databases. On-site backups can guard against loss from software or hardware failure,
but it won't help against loss by fire, theft, etc. For that, you need to save one of your
backups off site.
The following FAQ's and Tips relate
to CookWare Deluxe...
TIPS: |A> If you made changes
to one of the recipes that comes with CookWare Deluxe (or the recipe sets) you'll need to check
the "My Recipe" checkbox so you can keep these changes the next time CookWare Deluxe
is updated; otherwise the changes will be lost when updating to a new version of CookWare Deluxe.
|B> You can send a recipe to a group of people by
separating each recipient with a comma and a space e.g. firstname.lastname@example.org, email@example.com,
|C> If you'd like to create a shopping list for a
single recipe, select Create Menu for that recipe and click the Menu button.
How to Scale a Recipe: The idea behind CookWare Deluxe is that you don't have to fill-out
a lot of fields - just drag and drop. However, drag and drop eliminates the ability to adjust
a recipe's serving sizes. CookWare Deluxe lets you adjust serving sizes for individual ingredients
by using the Scale Measures calculator. This helps scale individual recipe quantities in order
to adjust them for more servings.
|Tip> Use Duplicate Recipe script to make a Party
version of a recipe. Scale individual recipe quantities to adjust them for more servings, and
categorize it as Entertaining Guests.
Note: Not all recipes should be scaled - especially baking recipes because
sometimes-precise chemistry involved. No matter what the recipe - scaling almost always affects
the cooking time and seasoning amounts.
I exported/backed-up My Recipes and I can't find the file. For version 2.0 or higher... CookWare
Deluxe saves all your recipes to a file named "My Recipes (Backup).tab" with no quote
For versions prior to 2.0... when you export your recipes
a file is saved with the file name "MyRecipes" - one word with no quote marks. When
you Back-up My Recipes a file is saved with the file name "MyRecipes (back-up)" with
no quote marks.
To find your files... perform a search of your Hard Drive
for these files.
