I have a small netbook that I run Beersmith on when I'm brewing, but I'd rather use my main desktop for things like putting in recipes. So I figured out how to get Beersmith to run from both computers without having to manually copy recipes back and forth:
- Sign up for a free Dropbox account (my referral link is https://www.dropbox.com/referrals/NTM0ODcwMzU5 - if you use it to sign up we both get an extra 250MB storage for free). The free account allows you to store 2 GB which is more than enough.
- Install the Dropbox software on the computer with the copy of Beersmith you want to use. It will create a "My Dropbox" folder in "My Documents"
- Copy C:\Program Files\Beersmith to your "My Dropbox" folder
- Go to another Windows computer where you want to use Beersmith and install the Dropbox software again
- Now, you'll see Beersmith inside "My Dropbox"
- Open that up and you'll see beersmith.exe - run that and you'll see all your recipes!
I know that you can use a USB thumbdrive too, but this works better for me.
