I've installed MasterCook, but I am unable to open it.
Restart your computer. Leave all other programs closed for now. Start up MasterCook. Do you get an error message or anything? When you press and hold the ALT key on your keyboard and also press the Tab key, is MasterCook listed there?
I have the MasterCook icon, but when I click on the icon, I only see Welcome to MasterCook. When I push the "Launch" button nothing happens.
After pressing the Launch button, press and hold the ALT key on your keyboard and also press the Tab key, is MasterCook listed there?
Three pictures come up as located on my desktop. MasterCook icon and others.
Ok, that means it is running on your computer, and Windows has moved it out of view and off your screen. Use ALT+Tab to select MasterCook that is running. Then use ALT + Spacebar. Select Maximize from the menu that appears.
See this which explains too:
If the above does not help, please do these things below.
1. Please restart your computer so that nothing is running.
2. Then use Windows to open this folder on your computer:
C:\Users\Public\Documents\MasterCook 15 (or 20)
Open the C drive. Open the Users folder. Open the Public folder. Open the Public Documents folder. Open the MasterCook 15 (or 20) folder.
Delete this file from that MasterCook 15 (or 20) folder: MasterCook.ini
When you delete the .ini file, it resets MasterCook, so you will likely need to follow these instructions to get the included cookbooks to reappear.
Otherwise, if something on the computer corrupted the program beyond repair, you will need to reinstall as explained here:
