How do I install a new release from the Software Updates page?

To install a new, updated version of The Recipe System, first determine which release you currently have by opening your splash page which is accessible from Recipe Search ribbon, and then clicking on Version.

The current Recipe System version will begin with either Recipes or Recipesx64.  Check the date that follows Recipes(or Recipesx64) and if the Product Update page’s current versions are newer than the version that you have, you can select the appropriate download button.  A zipped version of the file will be downloaded to your computer.  Unzip the file and then double click on the .exe file to start the download.

You will not lose your existing recipes.

If you receive a message saying that your version is already installed, stop the update.  Do not uninstall your old version and try to install this one or you might lose your data.
