My MasterCook Manager Not Working/Included Cookbooks Don't Show

I installed MasterCook 15 and/or an update. The My MasterCook Manager is not working correctly. Additionally, when I go to the Cookbooks screen I don't see the included cookbooks in that screen. I only see My Cookbook.

Please open this folder on your computer: C:\ProgramData\MasterCook 15

Open the C drive. Open the ProgramData folder. (If you don't see this folder it's because Windows is hiding it from you. See here: Showing Hidden Files in Windows 8 & 10.) Open the MasterCook 15 folder.

Find the MyMasterCookErrors.txt file and open it with Notepad.

Look to see if somewhere you see this line of text:

Exception Retrieving the COM class factory for component with CLSID {FC1BE962-3922-4FDA-930A-BD466FBCD78B} failed due to the following error: 80040154 Class not registered (Exception from HRESULT: 0x80040154 (REGDB_E_CLASSNOTREG)).

If you see "Class not registered" that means you have an incomplete installation. Something on your computer prevented the program from finishing its installation. That is generally caused by another program interfering during MasterCook's installation. Usually antivirus programs are the culprit.

You need to follow the Troubleshooting section at the end of this article: MasterCook 15 Merge

It's likely you are also suffering from this problem: Included Cookbooks Don't Show in the Program

Hopefully that's the extent of the damage.

Otherwise, if you have any additional odd problems that others don't have, you will have to reinstall exactly as explained here: Reinstall MasterCook 15
