How to install Recipe Box

[ Edited ]

Firstly you need Touchsmart (TS) 3.0 User Interface (UI) installed, I don't think it runs on TS 2.0 UI and you need to be running Windows 7.

 

Do a search in the drivers and download for "Touchsmart 600-1055", then either from the Windows 7 64bit or 32 bit drivers download, you'll find an update for recipe box or ftp copy  ftp://ftp.hp.com/pub/softlib/software11/COL30723/pv-76114-1/sp44419.exe

 

1. Download and save a copy of sp44419.exe to your local disk, I'll assume you have copied it to your C:\TEMP folder.


2. Install winrar (search google for winrar download) once you have installed winrar go to step 3.


3. Right click on "Start" and select "Open Windows Explorer"


4. In file explorer navigate to C:\TEMP and right click the file sp44419.exe then select "extract to sp44419\"

 

 

5. In file explorer navigate to "C:\TEMP\sp44419\src" and right click HPTSRB.exe then select "extract to HPTSRB\".

 

6. copy C:\TEMP\sp44419\src\HPTSRB\hp\tmp\DefaultAppSettings\Bottom\*.xml to C:\HP\TS\DefaultAppSettings\Bottom\*.xml

 

7. In file explorer navigate to "C:\TEMP\sp44419\src\HPTSRB\hp\tmp\src\" and double click on RecipeBoxSetup.msi


8. Check to see if the following files installed in "C:\Program Files (x86)\Hewlett-Packard\TouchSmart\RecipeBox" folder

 

30/09/2009  03:50 PM           154,680 BTUtil.dll
30/09/2009  03:50 PM        20,068,920 RecipeBox.exe
17/11/2009  07:24 PM               445 RecipeBox.exe.config
08/07/2009  06:04 PM            49,148 RecipeIcon.png
30/09/2009  03:51 PM            11,832 SpeechTraining.exe

 

9. Using file explorer, double click on "C:\TEMP\sp44419\src\HPTSRB\hp\tmp\AutoGateway.reg", a warning message will popup, click on "Yes" and continue.

 

10. Using file explorer, double click on "C:\TEMP\sp44419\src\HPTSRB\hp\tmp\Headset.reg", a warning message will popup, click on "Yes" and continue.

 
11. You now need to register the recipe box app so that you can see it in TS 3.0 UI using the command RegisterSmartCenterApp.exe...

 

Using file explorer, navigate to "C:\Program Files (x86)\Hewlett-Packard\TouchSmart\SmartCenter 2.0" and hold "Shift" key and right click in empty area of the right hand window pane of File explorer and select  "Open command prompt here".

 

 

Then enter the following command in the command prompt...

 

RegisterSmartCenterApp   updateconfig   C:\HP\TS\DefaultAppSettings\Bottom\RecipeBox_ebde755e-0a00-4f16-8f56-b5a4be10a96b.xml

 

For example, here I entered the command and can see that the registration was successful..

 

12. Create "C:\ProgramData\TouchsmartData\Recipes\Images" folder and copy jpg files for your categories...

 

mkdir C:\ProgramData\TouchsmartData\Recipes\Images

 

Then copy some jpg files for your categories to "C:\ProgramData\TouchsmartData\Recipes\Images"...  By doing this you will be able to populate your Categories and add new recipes and then save them..

 

13. Start touchsmart and you should see it as a small tile last on the right.

 

14. Come back to this post and click the star on the left and give me kudos~!

JimT:

 

Are you sure about the Copy To directory/path in Step 6?  I don't have a tmp directory under c:\hp.

 

Thanks!

Re: How to install Recipe Box

Thanks for all your help JimT....but, I got as far as entering the command into the command prompt, but it will not register, popup window says - RegisterSmartcenter App has stopped working...blah blah blah...close program

When I close, in the command prompt window it states the following:

Unhandled Exception:smileyfrustrated:ystem.NullReferenceException: object reference not set to an instanceof an object.

   at RegisterSmartcenterApp.Program.DoesAppSettingAlreadyExist<String originalFile, StoreKind store, String& storeFile>

at RegisterSmartCenterApp.Program.Main<String[ ] args>

 

Any ideas???

 

Appreciate any help you can give (wife will love you(and me again) if I can get this to work) :smileyhappy:

not really sure about that, although you can copy the xml file manually to have them registered in smartcenter, but that doesn't sound too good.

 

To copy the xml to have it registered, you can copy it to this folder, but in general you should use registersmartcenterapp command when it should work for you...

 

"C:\ProgramData\Hewlett-Packard\TouchSmart\SmartCenter 2.0\DefaultAppSettings"

Recipe in the pathway in Step 12 above needs to be Recipes (plural) in order for the TS Recipe Box program to find and use the jpg image files for Categories.
