Running Sticky Notes using ShellExecute


Go to solution Solved by Jos,

Hello everyone

I am having trouble trying to run the Sticky Notes program in windows. When I use:

ShellExecute("C:\Windows\System32\StikyNot.exe")

I keep getting an Error that it cannot be located even though it is definitely right there in that spot.

The ScriptDir is located in @UserProfileDir & "\Downloads" if that matters.

Anyone got any Ideas?

Kind Regards

I notice that you have Windows 10. Since you said you were certain that the Sticky Note executable file was present in the System32 folder I assumed that your computer was running Windows 7 as the operating system.

Following an old update, the old Sticky Notes is no longer available on Windows 10. In its place, Microsoft has put an application that can be downloaded from its store.

With Windows 7 you can encounter this error if the application that should open Sticky Notes is 32-bit.

Are you sure that stikynot.exe is present in 😄 \ System32?

Pretty sure the OP is missing the separate full SciTE4AutoIt3 version. @Chantaro, just install the full version and then the #Autoit3Wrapper directives will work.
