Just go to My computer, then your c: drive, them Program files and BeerSmith. I had the file and deleted it, but no help.

I upgraded to the new version to get the bjcp 2008 update, but if I can't see my freaking recipes because of it, I think I'll go back to the old version.

I know this is old but here's a link for reference since this just happened to me:
http://www.beersmith.com/forum/index.php?topic=1445.0

Quote:
Under Vista or windows 7 you may also have a "Compatibility files" directory that shows up on the toolbar when you go to the BeerSmith directory. This is where your data and the opts file likely lives. The full path to the compatibility directory is: C:\Users\{USERNAME}\AppData\Local\VirtualStore\Pro gram Files\BeerSmith

where {USERNAME} is your login name for Vista.

If you delete the newopts14.opts directory there you should be in business.

Cheers,
Brad

Better solution posted here (no offense to Brad):
http://www.homebrewtalk.com/f84/beer...ing-up-164252/


"Backup data. Uninstall. Install to C:\Users\YourUserName . Problem (should be) solved.

That eventually happened to me on Vista, I looked at some fixes and everything, this worked like a charm and it never happened again. When I installed Win7 I installed to Program Files and shortly after it happened again, so I did what I said, problem solved again."

Since installed to this directory, the glitch has never happened to me.

One thing you may want to do though is right down your registration or serial # before you uninstall and then enter the same # when you re-install.....

This stuff drives me nuts. Microsoft has been telling application developers for 10+ years to save data in the user directories. If Vista/7 is breaking your application with compatibility files, its your own fault.
