Program does not start
« on: July 08, 2021, 12:20:24 PM »
I get the error "You may have another copy running", which I don't. No beersmith processes are running in the background. When I click 'open Beersmith now' it has the loading screen and then nothing happens. I have tried reinstalling twice and restarting my computer multiple times. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

On the forum main page. Click Search next to Help.  Enter "another copy running" in the Search For box then click Search.

There are several post with the reason and solution to this issue.

So far I am finding a few dozen threads with no actual solutions. Do you know of a certain thread or response from Beersmith that solves this? Feel like it should probably be stickied somewhere with how prevalent this issue seems to be.

It might help if you gave some information on your system so that people who have experienced it with a similar system may be able to help.  Simple items such as: version of BeerSmith and operating system (with version) go a long way to getting more specific help.

I think I handled this one by mail - he had a corrupted recipe file which we were able to restore.
