can I network Cookbook Wizard and share my recipe database ?
Install the software on each workstation.
Designate a server(or a pc) to hold the database.
dedicated machine is best!)
On the server where the recipe database is,
THE INSTALL FOLDER
will allow other pc's to access it)
On the workstations that will access the recipe database on the
server from step 3, you will need to map the share from the server as
a letter, map the shared folder as the letter P, be sure to select
the reconnect at login time or when the pc reboots the connection
will have to be added again.
On the workstations that will access the recipe database you will
need to change a INI file, this is only done on PC's that access the
recipe database on the server or another PC. Search for the file
COOWIZ20.INI (number zero after the 2) and make the change as you see below:
above change tells the pc where the recipe database is. Note it
tells cookbook wizard to look at P:\ which is the share created to
look at another server or PC.
Power on rules: The PC or server with the recipe database MUST
be on first!
Power off rules: The PC or server with the recipe database MUST
be turned off last!
you do not follow these PC power off/on rules your recipe database
may get damaged. It is best to leave the pc with the recipe database
on a server and ON all the time. Backup your database on the machine
that contains the database often. It is best to do a backup when the
database is not in use. This may involve all other workstations
powering down the pc first! You will need to purchase 1 copy of the
software for each PC. Your network must be high speed between the
locations. For example, Ethernet or token ring setup is fine.
