Since Google Chrome and other web browsers have been updated to new version I am having problem with simple download of ShixxNOTE program setup file (zip file). Because of that many of users doesn’t know and they simply trust Google and they don’t download ShixxNOTE program setup file. This is very big problem for me. And now I have to address to Google that ShixxNOTE is 100% secure for download.
Here is the images I get on my Google Chrome (it is on Croatian language) but it is the same warning on any language.
After I click on “Primary Download” image button I get this Google Chrome warning.
So just to inform all who is reading this post do as you can see on image above and click on “Keep file” because I assure you that ShixxNOTE setup file (zip) is 100 percent valid and secure. I don’t know why Google did this but now that is the only way you can download ShixxNOTE 6.net setup file.

When ShixxNOTE program trial 30-days period expires you can register program if you like it. I hope you do and this is the way how to do it. Process is simple and very secure.
First you need to go to the program home page www.shixxnote.com and click on menu item “Order Now”. After you select license you want you must click on “Buy Now” image button and then you will be redirected to my payment processor company SWREG.
On that page you must select how will you pay and enter your info and after you finish, you will promptly get your download link for ShixxNOTE registered version.
And that is all. I hope now you will register your trial versions of ShixxNOTE 6.net you have installed. You can pay with any known payment type.
This is a small menu hidden in ShixxNOTE program “Send note to” dialog. You can simpy right mouse click on the computer in you LAN and voila you get small menu with two options “Add” to note recipient(s) that computer or you can check selected computer “IP Address”. Cool if you want to know which IP address stands under the computer name. On this picture computer namer is OZREN-PC and IP address is 192.168.1.34 ! So people use that feature and have a great summer … Till next post … Kind regards to all ! Ozren Sirola author of the ShixxNOTE program ;-)
Many of customers and users of ShixxNOTE 6.net program didn’t send email note. But recently one customer asked me more about sending note via email. So now I decided to modify some things regarding sending email note in source code and today I released a new version of ShixxNOTE 6.net Build 138. If you didn’t know when you open “Send note to” others dialog from note menu you get send note dialog. Program already read your network neighborhood and you can see a list of computer in your LAN in the left list. From that list you can select recipients from your LAN, but also you can enter in a text box above for example some email address like firstname.lastname@example.org and when you press enter that mail address will be added in note recipients list. Also you will see different icon instead of computer you will see smaill Outlook Express icon before email address. When you have finished adding recipients then you click on big “Send note” button.
I suppose that you will be asked by Windows Mail or Outlook if you want allow ShixxNOTE program to send email to mail recipients. You must click on button “Allow”. After that your email client will send ShixxNOTE note via email with all data in it and with picture of note as an attachment,
Now recipient will get in his Inbox new ShixxNOTE email message which looks like this picture (my mail client is Outlook).
You can see on both pictures what program sended. All data necessary for note creation and an attachment of note picture. But also you can see in a subject text of the email something like this “ShixxNOTE : Note from Ozren, OZREN-PC” which means that note was sended to you from user Ozren who works on OZREN-PC computer.
Before I had some problems with sending email notes and getting correct user name but now everything is working fine. After you received ShixxNOTE note you can click on ShixxNOTE main menu item “Check for email notes” (check previous posts to see how to get main program menu) and program will search your Inbox for ShixxNOTE program emails and will create exactly the same note as sender have sent to you on your desktop.
I hope you will use this option more now when you know how to send and receive ShixxNOTE email notes.
ShixxNOTE Program Author
Many of my customers asked me if I have some kind of “Scheduler” implemented in ShixxNOTE 6.net program. Now I am thinking a lot about that feature. There are two solutions for this. First solution is to modify program and enable execution of “ShixxNOTE.exe” file from “Command prompt” with arguments. After that I can add “Basic Task” from program in Windows “Task Scheduler”. That also means that you will be able to write command in “Command prompt” that will execute ShixxNOTE program and send note to others in your LAN. For example if you write this “ShixxNOTE.exe -cmp STEVE -txt Hello” in the Command Prompt, recepient (computer named STEVE in your LAN) will receive note with text (“Hello”). Note theme would be as a default one on STEVE’s computer.
Second solution is to add in note menu new item “Schedule”. And then you would get scheduler dialog where you will be able to select for every note time, repetition and recipient(s) or group that will receive that note. Second solution is better but please give me advice. Now I am thinking about developing first and also second solution. And after that I will change version to 7.net because in that new version there would be a plenty of new options, changes, new features and finally multilanguage support.
I will quote one email sent to me from my trial program user which have some problems.
I’m running a trial version of Shixxnote, and it appears that I can send notes from Windows 7 computers to Windows XP computers, but I can’t do the opposite – send notes from Windows XP computers to Windows 7 computers on my network. Is this a known issue? Do you have any troubleshooting steps I can take? My firewall is disabled on all computers.
This is not a first time that I’ve receive this kind of mails. Always one computer can send note but can not receive note or otherwise. Problems with sending or receiving notes in your LAN, that is this article about. I will try to help you and write you solutions for that kind of problems with ShixxNOTE 6.net
Also you will read how my customer above solve the problem. So when you install ShixxNOTE 6.net in your LAN of few computers but some of them have different kind of Windows OS. Maybe you will expirience problem like my customer did. He could send notes from Windows 7 computer but he could not receive notes from Windows XP computers. Than I wrote him simple steps to check and to solve the problem.
Considering that I have customer with same problem I wrote him this, because my previous customer has also some troubleshoot and we solve the problem.
I have one customer who just renamed computer name on Windows Seven and then after that he could send note to everybody. So I wrote my trial user that he tries this solution also. And guess what that also solved his problem. I don’t know why but problem was somewhere in WORKGROUPS, because Windows 7 is new OS he could only send note but not receive. If you ever have this kind of problem please first do this just rename the name of your computer. Here is the screenshot where you can see how to change your computer name in Control Panel.
So this is my first advise to you if you have similar problems with ShixxNOTE 6.net. But also if this doesn’t work that try this.
Check on every computer which are using program if they have same workgroup.
Try to send note directly to yourself, open “Send note to …” dialog and write your computer name in recipient list. After you click on send button you must receive identical note.
Finally first thing I always advise is to check Windows Firewall settings on every computer running ShixxNOTE 6.net. Program is written in C++ and is using port 2000 to send and receive notes. And If Windows 7 comp doesn’t have open port 2000 then you will be not able to receive notes.
That was all I want to share with you if you have some problems with sending and receiving notes.
