    i install the 32bit version of Vista Business edition on my laptop and it
    seems that some components of the tablet edition are installed automatically
    (snippingtool in particular)...

    i LIKE snippingtool and want it on my desktop but when you install on a
    desktop, snippingtool isnt installed and i can find no way to add it. i
    tried copying snippingtool.exe from the laptop but it doesnt run on the
    desktop (must be another file missing). i found out that you can download a
    package of tools form microsoft that contains snippingtool but this wont
    install unless it detects tablet edition!!!

    can someone figure out how to make this tool work on a desktop installation?

    Control Panel>Programs and Features
    look to the left>Turn Windows Features on or off>
    scroll down a bit, and you'll see Tablet PC optional Components.

    You can also install the Games from there. I don't think
    Business comes with the Games installed.

    It is in control panel, windows features. I believe it is apart of the
    tablet pc functionality, which would explain why it wouldn't be on by
    default on a desktop.

    Oh, and one more thing... isn't tablet pc functionality not in business
    edition? That would remove snipping tool. Not sure about that one, but
    something to think about.
