Beer smith keeps crashing on 4th fresh reinstal
« on: March 06, 2011, 10:17:38 AM »
Ok I have had to re install 4 times now.
 I am using windows 7 64 bit Pro.  I have set up a couple of recipes (the same ones four times now).  I then go to open Beersmith a few days or a week or so later and get an error that there is problem and windows searches for a solution then beer smith fails to open. 

It worked fine when under the free trial but as soon as I paid these problems began.  Is there an update to fix this problem.  Getting very very very very frustrated.

  I honestly have not seen this type of problem before, but my quick suggestion would be to save your data off (use the Export command to export your recipes to a BSM file)  -- then reinstall the program but this time install it to a directory under your main user's "Documents" directory - for example "C:\Users\USER_NAME\My Documents\BeerSmith" where USER_NAME is the one you regularly log in to.

  Then run the program as usual and import your recipes back in.

  I'm running Win 7 64 bit here on several machines with no problems.
