How can I install MasterCook 9 on my Windows Vista or newer computer?
MasterCook 9 is not compatible with Windows Vista, 7, or 8. The newer versions of Windows will not allow it to fully function. It will cause your recipes to disappear from the program and other parts won't work correctly. MasterCook 9 was created by another company many years ago. Cosmi recently acquired MasterCook and released MasterCook 14 in June 2013. It is is the current version. It is on sale at www.mastercook.com and comes with a free one-year subscription to MasterCook.com which allows you to upload your recipes from MasterCook 14 to your account at MasterCook.com, so you can access and edit them from your tablet or phone. You will need to purchase the latest version in order to use MasterCook on Windows Vista, 7, or 8. MasterCook 14 can use all of your files from version 9 too. See this article:
After installing MasterCook 14 just take your files from version 9 and copy them into the folders they belong for version 14 and refresh the program as explained in the above article.
