    I was just reading about the 'snipping tool' but I don't have it on my
    computer. Where can I get it? I'm using Vista Beta2 5384. Thanks.

    Hello,

    The snipping tool is located in the start menu, under all programs, then
    accessories.

    Or, just click start, and type snipping into the search box. :)

    I was able to install the tool by going to Control Panel | Programs |
    Windows Features | Tablet PC Optional Components. But it still doesn't work.
    I get a message that the snipping tool is not working right now and I need
    to restart my computer or contact administrator. Neither does any good.
    Anybody? Thanks!

    Available where Jimmy said and works fine. Why complicate matters.

    John, you obviously didn't read either post I wrote. Simple to do!

    While I read your posts, I assumed as Jimmy did, that you were looking in
    the wrong place. Sorry, I missed you are on the latest version also. Also
    you didn't say you were using a tabletPC so the second post
    If you don't have the snippingtool.exe in your system32 folder, why don't
    you see if you can copy it from the 5381 cd and make a shortcut? You may
    have to do it in safe mode logged in as administrator.

    I'm not using a Tablet PC. I uninstalled all files for it in order to get
    rid of things I didn't need. Reinstalled it and I have the Snipping Tool
    that doesn't work. I suspect something else I uninstalled has to do with the
    tool as well. Anyway the snipping tool doesn't work. I don't have an earlier
    version of Vista. If anyone wants to post the 5381 version of the snipping
    tool I'll take it. Thanks for the replies.

  8. Report the bug. The advice you are getting is likely from users not using
    the Tablet PC edition.

    First post. Also didn't know there was a separate Tablet PC Edition.

    I'm using Vista Beta2 5384

  10. I should have said "using a Tablet PC." Setup detects it and configures
    accordingly.

    I guess I am missing something. His post says

    I'm not using a Tablet PC. I uninstalled all files for it in order to get
    rid of things I didn't need

    If he is NOT using a Tablet PC, how does it detect it.
    If he deleted files he thought he didn't need, how would you suggest he
    restore this function.

  12. I think I got that idea from his second post. Scratch that.
