We are aware that there is an issue with updating the food database on a Windows Vista machine. This issue will be resolved in a future release of the Nutrition and Exercise Manager. In the mean time, we have the following work-around, which you can use to update the food database.
In order for the Nutrition and Exercise Manager to be able to update the food database, it needs to escalate it's privileges to an Administrator level. By default, even if you have logged in Windows Vista using an "Administrator" account, running applications will be run with the least amount of privilege.
How to escalate the privilege for updating the food database:
1. On your desktop, right-click on the "CalorieKing Nutrition and Exercise Manager" icon.
2. You will be presented with a pop-up menu.
3. From the pop-up menu, choose the option to "Run as administrator".
4. Depending on what type of Windows user account you have logged into at the time, you will get one of the following:
* For an Administrative Windows user account: when the "User Account Control" prompt appears, choose the "Allow" option.
* For a Standard Windows user account: When prompted for an administrator account, enter the username and password for an enabled Administrative Windows user account on your computer.
5. The Nutrition and Exercise Manager will begin to start.
6. When the CalorieKing Nutrition and Exercise Manager has started, choose from the "File" menu, "Update Food Database" to begin the process of updating the food database.
7. When the database has updated, exit the Nutrition and Exercise Manager.
8. Start the Nutrition and Exercise Manager normally (i.e.: without escalating privileges) and you should now be able to access the updated food database.
6. I have problems running the Nutrition & Exercise Manager on Mac Snow Leopard. How do I fix this?
Note: This software has been discontinued.
If you are experiencing issues running Snow Leopard with the Nutrition and Exercise Manager for Mac OS X please try the following temporary fix. In your "System Preferences" "Appearances" please uncheck "Use LCD font smoothing option when available." Please also try updating your copy of Snow Leopard to the latest available update.
7. Where do I find the Mac OS X version of the Nutrition & Exercise Manager?
This software has been discontinued.
* If you elected not to install the CalorieKing Nutrition and Exercise Manager icon to your desktop, then navigate to the "CalorieKing Nutrition and Exercise Manager" on your start menu and right-click on it. Continue from step 2 above.
* It is recommended that you escalate the privilege on the Nutrition and Exercise Manager only for updating the food database.
