    Been using this since the first release.
    Best there is, and a reason I returned to Windows after a year-long fling with Mac and Linux.
    Neither ran it very well, but gave the best performance in a virtual machine. 'Course, you have to have an actual copy of Windows to do that. Wine was too finicky, especially with printing.

    You need to find the XML file that was on your old computer, copy it over and then open it.

    I'd like to make a request :)
    on the edit venders list, I wish there was an option like with the Maintain Manufactures List
    where you can rename them (as sometimes company names change), and add alias' and notes

    thank you :D

    I just started using this calculator and for some reason I can create a recipe just fine and add my ingredients and manufatcturer. But when I go to create a new recipe I have to re-add my ingredients everytime. Is this normal? I click on the list and it goes ti blank including all my quantities reset after every new file is created. Please help.

    Be careful with .EXE files from old sites like that folks.

    EXE files can be very dangerous to download, especially from REEEEEEEALLY old sites like that. It's not about you, it's about that site and the EXE file on the possibly being compromised. That site is really old and old sites get hacked a lot.

    That's all I'm saying, bro. It's not about you. Relax.

    Ill be more careful. Do you recommend newer software like Juice grinder but that's costs a bit. This seems to be used by a lot of veterans like yourself didnt know it's that old...please elaborate and this program seems to be very accurate for mixing by weight. Please offer me a hand on good standalone software for mixing...I thought this was still the staple?

    Better question what's the best mixing software out there for windows. Juice grinder? Or...juice me up? Offer me a hand please.

    I guess I'm not fully understanding what you mean...
    when you create a new recipe
    it's going to bring up a new "screen" it should look like this
    upload_2020-5-11_11-45-55.png
    where it is ready for you to create a new recipe....

    or do you mean that your recipe wasn't saved? remember to hit that Save button before starting a new project

    if you are wanting a template to use, go to the tools tab, then click on options
    then click on the Recipe defaults tab
    select from the drop down menu on Recipe to use as a template for new recipes which one you want to load
    now when you create a new recipe it will preload whichever recipe you chose to be a template to edit

    You have the best mixing app for Windows, don't be concerned by the age of the site or program.
    When dealing with IT security, you first have to ask these questions.
    1. How many people would be infected with the efforts?
    2. How much effort will have to be put into this?
    3. What's the intended payoff?

    On all 3 questions, a juice mixing app on a low traffic site isn't going to meet the payoff for anyone of any skill.
    Those of lesser skill wouldn't be able to hide from any decent antimalware app.

    Enjoy the program!

    Hello everybody.

    I wonder where I can manage the categories for flavors. Add/delete.

    I decided to merge a pair of categories I had created into 1. When I moved all the recipes into the one I was keeping, the now unused category didn't show in the drop down list of categories any longer.

    Since you are only mixing for 3mg just enter/use one base and when it's gone change the setting for the other base.

    Dissatisfied with a number of online calculators recently and having to manually calculate everything with the liquids I had to adjust, I was just about to post a question about recommendation for a decent, advanced calculator. But I found this thread and downloaded your calculator. First glance and scrolling through all the options: it looks like it will do exactly everything I was unhappy about with the online calculators I was using, and probably more :) nearly bedtime but I will explore it tomorrow, got 3 different coffe mixes that taste pretty rough so I'm planning to mix some vanilla custard and vanilla bean ice cream juices to cut them with, the "simple calculators" will come in handy :)

    A better option would be to select the recipe you want to change - to either add OR reduce.
    Then select 'Tools->Modify Existing Recipe' - then make your modifications and it will tell you how much to add of each ingredient to keep all ratios intact. After you've made the changes shown on THAT screen (only time it will show the change amounts), then save it to a new recipe. And, yes, you can even reduce -- but only by adding more of all the other ingredients, of course.

    Using bottles with ML markings makes things easy when you need to enter the current amount of mix remaining before making your changes.

    So, no need to mix the vanillas separately - just add however much it tells you to add. :thumb:

    Thanks for the advice, it will come handy in the future :) Can't do it this time though as the juices I'm going to fix are in full bottles (60ml). I have spare 120ml bottles so I'm going to half fill them with the vanilla ice cream or custard and top up with I already have. But fair point, I could do it the other way around.
    I haven't done it yet, mixed some new juices instead: bubblegum +watermelon+ a lil bit of wild strawberry (first taste- disgusting, fail), and cherry bakewell + vanilla ice cream (disgusting so far, fail). I don't really have any ideas that might work for these two. The Mixmaster concentrates I used in both taste artificial as hell. Plastic watermeln and cherry. Disgusting

    I don't have any bottles with ml scale, I'll have a look online if there are any affordable down here that I could get. I normally get cheap clear 60 and 120ml chubby gorilla bottles (PET), and usually use the 60ml ones, ocasionally I'll mix 120ml but not very often.
