How Do I Upgrade From Version 6 to a later version? (With Custom Photos in your collection)

ANSWER:

The process is the same as the above steps, with an added photo step of extracting all recipe photos and dropping them in:

1. Launch the older Computer Cuisine Deluxe version 6 and select
Tools > “Backup All Recipes (Tab-Separated Text; No Photos)…”

2. In Computer Cuisine Deluxe version 6, select
Tools > “Extract All Recipe Photos…”

3. Launch Computer Cuisine Deluxe 7, and select:
Tools > “Import Recipes from Computer Cuisine Deluxe 5 or 6 backup .tab file…”

3. Locate your previous database file from the selection window.
Select it and click Open.

NOTE: Be sure to select “All Available” in the “Show” pull-down menu otherwise your database file may be dimmed and not selectable. It will look like this:

4. Locate your Recipe photos from inside your Computer Cuisine Deluxe 6.5 Folder. Each recipe photo file will be named as the exact recipe. (For example, Antipasto_1.jpg, Antipasto_2.jpg, Antipasto_3.jpg if you have three recipe photos.) Simply locate these photos and drag & drop them into Computer Cuisine Deluxe 7’s photo menu.

That’s it!
