A note of thanks for.....everything! I received a CD as a gift 2 years ago, and have enjoyed the recipes and the info on the website. I've entered many of my own favorite recipes as well. From the technical side, the program is so thoughtfully written and easy to use; very intuitive. I recently decided to install the CD on a laptop to use in the kitchen. I visited the tech support section of your website, and was able to fix everything with out having to call you, and without having to mutter bad words under my breath! You do an outstanding job of offering a useful product at a reasonable price, and backing it up with a commitment to excellence!

Click on the link and save the update patch to your desktop.
After the update patch has downloaded close Cook'n. Then run the update patch.

Upgrading to v8.2

If you have an older version of Cook'n we strongly recommend upgrading to version 8. Version 8 has many new capabilities and is will work with Vista and 64 bit processors. Version 8 is also supported by updates and tech support.

Version 8 will accept backup and imports from older versions of Cook'n. If you are upgrading and concerned about losing your recipes make a backup before upgrading. (file > backup)

If you are upgrading using a cd you should be able to put the cd and Cook'n will upgrade automatically. If the autorun on the cd does not install v8 do the following:
Insert the cd and stop any autorun process.
Close Cook'n. Then go to the my computer.
Right click on the cd/dvd drive and choose explore.
Run the file named setup.exe.(if you have Vista right click on the setup.exe file and choose 'run as administrator')
*if told that 'recipe data already exists, do you want to overwrite' CHOOSE NO.
