(Windows) I Can’t Enter a Recipe: “This action cannot be performed” Why?


I tried adding my own recipes and every time I click on the NEW button, I get this message: “This action cannot be performed because this file is not modifiable.” Why?

Well, if you are seeing “Registered Edition” as a splash screen when you launch the
program, then you are probably using Windows Vista or later.

Windows 7 and Vista protect the Program Files directory now and thus, there’s a note during the install saying you’ll need to install Computer Cuisine Deluxe into your Documents folder (or any other non-protected folder) and not the Program Files directory.

Please reinstall the application into your Documents folder (or any folder which is not your Program Files directory since this is now protected under Windows Vista and Windows 7. (Again, this is noted on the install screens when you install)
