Hi there,

I’m not able to launch Sticky notes – issue with accessing the file. It worked just fine before the updates that I made on my Windows 7 and I had to reinstall because the error appeared. Can anyone help me to fix this ? Why I have this error ?

Thanks !

Hello,

Sticky Notes is a very useful program for personal use. Sorry to hear the problem with your Sticky Notes. It is installed by default while Windows installation. The executable file is located at “C:WindowsSystem32StikyNot.exe”. You can launch it directly from there and also make a shortcut for the file on your desktop because corrupted shortcuts launch application with wrong parameters that makes program malfunction and crash.

You can obtain a fresh copy of the file from other PC with same OS installed. Running “sfc /scannow” may also help you solve your issue.

Also, here is another way that will help you solve your issue. This is not recommended, but useful.

1. Setup Windows Explorer to show hidden files and folders.

2. Go to “%AppData%MicrosoftSticky Notes”.

3. Make a backup of “StickyNotes.snt” and delete from the original folder.

4. Open Sticky Notes.
