I have been using this software for quite awhile. It was going fine until a few days ago. Now it won't open the cookbook browser. It only gives me the basic Home screen.
This typically indicates one of your cookbook files is corrupt, so the program is unable to view the Cookbooks screen. Start up MasterCook and go to the Search screen. Search for the word apple in all of your cookbooks. Does it stumble on a particular cookbook? If so, drag the error message off to the side a bit to reveal the name of the cookbook underneath. Note its name. That file is corrupt and causing the problem. You can send that cookbook file to MasterCook Support, and we can see if we can recover any of its recipes. Use Windows to search for your cookbook by name to locate it if necessary.
