unable to open snipping tool using run

Try running with the script with the  X64 version of Autoit3!

Jos

PS: This will work when you have the full version of SciTE4AutoIt3 installed:

#AutoIt3Wrapper_UseX64=y
$sFile = ("C:\WINDOWS\system32\SnippingTool.exe")
If FileExists($sFile) Then
   Run($sFile)
Else
   MsgBox(0,'File Error', "The Windows snipping tool was not found")
EndIf

Another way, if you want or need to run 32-bit is to turn off file system redirection.  

#include <WinAPIFiles.au3>

;Turn off redirection for a 32-bit script on 64-bit system.
If @OSArch = "X64" And Not @AutoItX64 Then _WinAPI_Wow64EnableWow64FsRedirection(False)

Global $sFile = "C:\WINDOWS\system32\SnippingTool.exe"
If FileExists($sFile) Then
   Run($sFile)
Else
   MsgBox(0,'File Error', "The Windows snipping tool was not found")
EndIf
