    Lightbulb For all the MC users who own a copy of WW Deluxe Light & Tasty...

    Hi!!

    If you own this piece of software you know that the recipes are great but the program itself is cr*ppy, for instance not being able to add your own igredients or print multiple recipes. You also cannot import them into MC- UNTIL NOW!!! MUAHAHAHAHAHAAAAA!

    Sorry.

    I did a bit of hacking around with the software today, thinking there has got to be a better way to get them into my MC other than cutting and pasting, and found something interesting.

    Mind you, this worked on my laptop running Windows ME:

    • Step 1: Open the WW deluxe CD rom with your "My Computer" interface. DO **NOT** RUN THE PROGRAM!!! Just open/explore it.
    • Step 2: Find a file called "RECIPE.MED". Right click on it and open it with either wordpad or Word (I used wordpad). DO **NOT** CHOOSE TO "ALWAYS USE THIS PROGRAM TO OPEN THESE FILES!!! You'll end up not being able to use them with your program, I think.
    • Step 3: Save the file as word document, AND as an HTML file!
    • Step 4: Now you can either open it in Word and remove the html formatting, or you can open it in your browser and use the import feature.


    Just a note if you choose to use the browser option- the recipe for meat tortillini comes after the cheese capiletti, but the nutritional for the tortillini comes BEFORE The one for the capiletti. If you look at the servings you'll see that one says tortillini, the other says capiletti. You'll see, I have faith in you!

    I checked and all the recipes are in there, just in an odd order. Ignore the weird stuff at the bottom of the browser page, I don't know what it is but it doesn't seem important.

    YIPPEEEE!!!

    Just thought you'd like to know.

    P.s. If you don't have the program, I can send the html page to you but it's 14,124 kb, whatever that means. Just let me know where.

    I have found a better way to get them into your browser!! Whoo!!!

    Explore the cd as in the last post, but instead of opening the file in wordpad, open them with your internet browser! This was you can save it as a clean html file and it looks great!! None of the weird character and screwed up nutritional info.

    WhooWhoo!!

    I'm trying to upload them onto one of my webpages so everyone can share them.

    This is THE BOMB!!!!

    I have the WW Light & Tasty CD and have been copying/pasting right out of the program into a Word Document, saving it as HTML so I could import back into MC.

    With this NEW information, this saves me ALOT of time!

    It's a shame that this CD won't be updated, as the food list is locked and I could never get the email function to work.

    I've emailed both WW and ValuSoft to see when the WW Mastercook edition was going to come out. Other countries have a WW CD program except for the U.S.A; go figure that one out! So far, no response.

    Thanks to the ladies here for figuring out a way to do this easily.

    There will be a MAJOR announcement in regards to this topic coming soon. Everyone will be pleased and thrilled beyond imagination, but I can't reveal it until all is clear and good to go.

    A special thanks to Ottermum!
