Default Just in time!

I have been using BeerSmith on a trial basis and was dreading the day I would have fork out the cash for the program. Then I found the original thread and followed it through to this one. I waited for a while before I downloaded BrewTarget, but finally did so yesterday... I love it! This is great! Thanks to RocketMan and all of the others who are developing this fantastic piece of open source software.

I downloaded brewsmith to try out and compare with Brewtarget. Well, brewsmith is more fleshed out, but Brewtarget is a better design. Just a few more additions and it will be on par with brewsmith, and then a bit more and it will be definitely better. The only problem I have had with it is the temperature calcs for the mash because of the small bug in the mashtun equation somewhere.

Also, can we donate money to help with the program? If I was a programmer, I would definitely help out, but I am a scientist and businessman, no coding for me!

Yeah, of course! There's a link that says "Donate" in the upper right of the main page. Donations are very welcome. I could also use an upgraded membership

I downloaded the program and it opened with WinZip. When I double click brewtarget.exe to launch the install, I get the error message:

brewtarget.exe - Unable to Locate Component
"This application has failed to start because mingwm10.dll was not found. Re-installing the application may fix this problem"

Well I reinstalled three times and am getting the same error.... any help?

You need to extract the whole folder to somewhere before trying to execute. brewtarget.exe is the actual program, and not an installer.

I installed in linux via the tarball. It worked great after I copied the xml files from /usr/local/share/brewtarget/ into my ~/.config/brewtarget/ (or whatever the paths are). Before doing that I was getting some DB not found errors. Thanks

When I extracted the files into the folder on the Desktop, I figured I would move the BrewTarget icon out of the folder onto the Desktop with all of the other shortcuts and I got a similar message when I double-clicked on the icon. When I moved it back into the folder and launched the program from there it ran fine. I imagine there is a workaround for this, but as long as the program works, all is ok.

You can't move it out of it's directory. You can right click it and "send to desktop as shortcut" or whatever if you like.
