I have an old version of MicroCookbook and just got a new computer with Windows 8.1. I have my recipes in MicroCookbook and don't want to have to switch programs again. Is version 5.5 compatible with Windows 8.1? Or are you planning a new version that will be compatible with Windows 8.1?

No, there is no version of the software compatible with Windows 8.1, but there is a trick to make it work in Windows 7 or Windows 8.1. The first thing to do is to install the application, then copy the odbcjt16.dll & odfox16.dll files to Windows\system32 even if you're using a 64bit operating system. Run the program as Administrator and it should work properly. It's a simple trick, but at least it will work.
