    Not on Vista

    I have tried it on vista but it does not work on vista. I don't know but can it work on vista (the actual program)?

    Edit: Ok it kinda works on vista, but data is not moved and it stops working when I try to close it.

    May the Shwartz be with you

    It looks like the library.zip is corrupt because when I try to open it, it says it is invalid.

    Error on execution

    Hi,

    First, thanks for this development. I've installed your package and I obtain an error :

    Traceback (most recent call last):
    File "Gourmet.pyw", line 2, in ?
    File "zipextimporter.pyo", line 78, in load_module
    File "gtk\__init__.pyo", line 37, in ?
    File "zipextimporter.pyo", line 91, in load_module
    ImportError: MemoryLoadLibrary failed loading gtk\_gtk.pyd

    Could help me ?

    Thanks

    Hmm

    Hmm, Do you have GTK installed in your system? (That should not matter, but just curious) I thought i fixed that, but maybe not. I will check it out.

    EDIT:Well, Are you sure that you're running it from the menu (or GourmetPortable.exe?) because it needs to redirect the GTK dir...

    neato...

    Here's what I found. Mostly minor stuff.

    • the help.html file should have the version # in it, so it should be titled
      Gourmet Portable 0.8 Development test 1 Help, both on the title bar and on page.
    • The tagline and specific issues mention HTTrack, not gourmet
    • For the icon, include only 48px, 32px, and 16px sizes, in both 32 and 8 bit colours
    • HTTrack is mentioned several times in the readme.txt in Other/source
    • I'm not sure where you got !define VER "3.4.3.2" from - HTTrack, I'll guess Wink - this is for the launcher version, which I think is at 1.6.0.0, not the base app.
    • I think the files in Gourmet\Data should be copied from DefaultData
    • For category, I would put it under Office, it's basically a productivity tool/organiser.
    • Library.zip is corrupted
    • I'm not sure about the splash. I think that in cases like this the base app's splash is usually relplaced with a custom one that has PortableApps branding (see GIMP portable; OO.o 3 Portable). I don't know much about GTK apps, but I suggest looking at how the splash in GIMP porable is set up.

    That's all I found for now, it looks pretty good.

    EDIT
    The folder %APPDATA%\gourmet is being left in the %APPDATA% folder.

    noo...

    I tested this on an XPSP2 deep freezed school computer. I forgot to mention, the folder gets backed up fine, but is not restored. So 2 folders are left after the second run, a backup and the first one.
    I'll take a closer look at the source for you, and i'll test it on another, more frequently updated computer.

    • I'm horrible at making stuff like that so I can't do that by my self. Sad

    I'm not sure about those folders leaveing behind, maybe I'll do $APPDATA instead of $%APPDATA%.

    It will be out soon(The dev test)

    GTK is not installed

    Hi,

    I didn't install anything about GTK. I just downloaded and executed the package "Gourmet_Portable_0.8.5.14_Development_Test_1.paf.exe". Is there anything to do before execute "GourmetPortable.exe" ?

    Thanks

    No, the required components that the program needs are already in the package.
    It should work though.

    Hi Kai

    THanks for new dev test, will regshot tonnight. Hust wanted to see if this is latest version. Wsa thinking if not it may be worth updating the base app before proceeding too much as you may get the portable wrapper right up to standard and then find that when you drop the latest version into the wrapper it leaves behind things the previous version didn't.

    Is it issues with version 0.13.8 or 0.14.5 that you are having trouble with?

    Also what are the exact nature of the problem. I myself wont be able to help but hopefully one of the gurus here can assist once you have identified the problem.

    Can you please specify the path you installed Gourmetportable to.
    eg. X:\PortableApps\Gourmet Portable

    Does Gourmet itself show or just GourmetPortable? There ahould be 2 seperate processes.

    Also you are using SP2 which may cause an issue but not necessarily. Are you running with Admin Rights? And are you using this in the PortableApps.com Menu? if there is any other info you think would help please let us know.

    Happened to me too

    I was trying to use it on my schools computers which have xp on them (unsure of the servicepack) and all that would start was GourmetPortable.exe. There was no gourmet.exe in the taskmanager. I was not using the portableapps menu.

    Edit: sorry ;(

    Same here

    Tried dev test 2, only GourmetPortable.exe starts and loads the cpu heavily. Seems that it fails to start gourmet.exe, it doesn't even appear for a second. I guess there's a infinite loop before it should start gourmet.exe. I'm using Win XP with SP3.

    Hmm, strange. One more thing.

    Hmm, strange. One more thing. Do you have GTK installed? I tested it on computers with and without GTK and it worked... (I cant do anything untill I actually get NSIS working, I think I messed it up)

    I don't think so but I'm not sure

    won't start

    cpu goes up to 30% and gourmet process is running in the taskmanager, but no window appears. Probably the same error like some other had above. I checked several installations. No one worked. Try it on several Systems (all WinXP). Nothing. I would appreciate if you could fix that.

    thx, Tom

    Still being maintained?

    I just downloaded this, it seems to launch perfectly on Win7 Ultimate x64... Is it still being maintained/updated? This is one of my favorite programs and I would love to see it being used with the current version. Thanks!

    Still in Development?

    Just found this program. Like one or two others, I am having the problem at work that the program does not fully launch. Gourmetportable starts and then runs in a loop, without loading Gourmet. My USB is an Ironkey, and I carry many of the portable apps with me, without trouble. I do not have Admin rights on work computer is XP Pro with SP2, Pentium 4 CPU. I have not yet tried to run it on my home computer.
    I'm wondering if an update is in prospect?

    Is the development dropped?

    Is anyone working on this anymore?
    The released test version failed to start on my computers, see my earlier post.
    Would really appreciate a updated and working version.

    Well... I just wanted to say

    Well... I just wanted to say that this application seems to be really hard to portablize and stabilize, they usually don't have the latest version for Windows, (intended for *nix systems)...I *might* do it.. but if anyone want's to do it, go ahead.

    Is this dropped?

    Hi Kai,

    Back in April I posted a query if Gourmet Recipe Manager was working for Windows 7 (https://portableapps.com/node/17393). The reply was that it should, but I couldn't get it to work and gave up. I'm really wanting a portable recipe manager (or even a decent non-portable one if I have to), so I tried to download it again for testing, but see the link's broken.

    Has this been abandoned? Do you have any suggestions?

    Thanks,
    Kiwi Kay

    Recipes DB Portable

    I'm interested in this software. There are any news in the development?

    In the meantime I found this "CookBook Portable":
