new installation opening previous database

Asked by Tom on 2014-11-15

Using Windows 8.1, have had to re-install program and I want to open my previous database. I put it in the gourmet folder in the roaming folder where it was but it was not opened. I created a new file then copied my old database over it but it still does not recognize it. Help.....

Do you still have access to your old Gourmet installation? If yes, you could export your recipes to Gourmet's XML file format and re-import them on your new system

Hi Bernhard,
I had to reimage the system. I assume this would be a good way to backup the recipes. If it is I will do this in the future.

Really like the program.

Tom

Sorry for not getting back to this any sooner. Unfortunately, I do not have access to any Windows 8.1(or even 8) computers, so I can't really tell what system locations have changed. Putting the Gourmet folder into the Roaming folder should normally work. Can you check the contents of the appdata environment variable to make sure you're looking at the right Roaming folder?

Thanks Bernhard. I was able to fix my problem. I installed it on another machine and copy the db file from one to the other so if one dies I still have the recipes.
