Vista: very good & fun snapshoot screen tool

6 posts in this topic

Hi! ;):P:P

*** This script is humorous (but it functions) ***

This tool can :

- capture region or windows

- save in differents formats

- to modify the capture image

- etc.

it's only for Vista.

Here, the source-code:

Run(@WindowsDir & "\system32\SnippingTool.exe")

Afflicted, I did not optimize the length of script... :)

It will also work om XP Tablet edition if you have the Experience pack. Everybody needs a Microsoft experience.

Edit

If you can find the file Snippingtool .exe and place it in the @SystemDir then it will work on XP sp2 but you may have to run it as a service.

$sFile = @WindowsDir & "\System32\SnippingTool.exe") 
If FileExists($sFile)Then
   Run($sFile)
Else
   MsgBox(0,'File Error', "The Windows snipping tool was not found")
EndIf

The snipping tool may not be installed. Google "SnippingTool.exe" and you will similar problems and the instructions to install and enable it.
