Create new note on Windows 10

July 4, 2017 Leave a comment

Hello,

In my last article I wrote that ShixxNOTE is now Windows 10 Compatible and that you can find it on Windows Store. From Windows Store you can download 30-days trial version and you can also buy 25-Users License for 25.00 USD. If you didn’t know that now you know. But there is one problem. When you install app from Windows Store and when you get program icon in your Windows 10 Start Menu you will get only small ShixxNOTE icon in taskbar located near clock. Also after you restart computer you must again start program from Start Menu. Old installation had put ShixxNOTE shortcut in your Start Up menu and you wouldn’t notice that ShixxNOTE application is started.

If you install program from Windows Store you can do also everything for 30 days trial period. But on every computer start you must manually start program and click program icon or tile in Windows 10 Start Menu. Here is the picture of my Windows Start menu and ShixxNOTE tile.

Soon I will release on Windows Store new version which will start ShixxNOTE program on computer start up. I will announce that on program ShixxNOTE Program Homepage and here. But if you had install program from Windows Store or you have install program from program download page and started program setup, I must explain to users how you will create new note.

When you start ShixxNOTE you will see Splash screen and then nothing. But you will get new program icon in your task bar located near the clock. Like on the picture bellow.

ProgramTrayIcon

Many of my users doesn’t know how to create note after they see splash screen they don’t notice this small icon. Maybe in new version I will create some welcome default note. But if you want to create note you just need to double click on program icon. Second way to create note is to right mouse click on program icon and then you will get main program menu, from there you simply select option “New note”. Here on the picture below you can see some previously created notes and main ShixxNOTE program menu.

I hope now first time users will know how to create note(s) and after that send them across your LAN in your office 🙂

Discount on program price

March 7, 2017 Leave a comment

I’ve created ShixxNOTE program before almost 12 years ago. First awarded version was ShixxNOTE 4.net. Program was published on DVD by croatian BUG magazine specialized for computers, gadgets and shareware programs. Back then BUG magazine rated my program with 10/10. Now after so many years and many changes in the program, I decided to put discount on ShixxNOTE 6.net program price. So check program order page and purchase your version 🙂

I hope you will appreciate this.

Installing program on Windows 10

December 30, 2015 1 comment

When you start ShixxNOTE setup file on Windows 10 you will get dialog below saying that “Windows protected your PC”. Windows SmartScreen prevent setup to start ?! And also it scares you with this sentence “Running this app might put your PC at risk”.  This is not correct. ShixxNOTE setup file is 100% safe and I can assure you that your PC will not be in any risk if you start setup file. Why Microsoft put ShixxNOTE setup file in risk group is because now they only trust recognized apps to run. Which means that app must be checked by Microsoft and be created to pass all theirs validation. This is new thing in Windows 10, before in Windows 7 or Windows XP there was nothing to scare you. If you want to install ShixxNOTE 6.net on your PC you must do the following. Check this images and read the text I wrote in green box 🙂

On first dialog you have to click on “More info” link.

WindowsProtect_01

On second image you have to click on button “Run anyway” and program setup will start. After that you will have ShixxNOTE 6.net installed on your computer 🙂

WindowsProtect_02

I am sorry for this but Microsoft decided that my program setup file is unrecognized. But don’t worry my program is 100% safe and if any of you who installed ShixxNOTE 6.net Trial version or Registered version have some problems after installing program please write comment.

Now I am little worried because people belive Microsoft rather than me, Ozren Sirola, ShixxNOTE program author. So now I am loosing my potential customers just because users are affraid or they doesn’t know that they must click on “More info” and then “Run anyway” button.

I hope this article and ShixxNOTE reputation (listed on English Wikipedia) will assure you that program is perfectly safe.

Kind regards,

ShixxNOTE on Windows 10

October 22, 2015 Leave a comment

After Microsft released new operating system Windows 10 I had to check if ShixxNOTE 6.net is working as usual on it. Answer is YES. But there are some issues. First download of setup file when you got web browser warning, then when you pass this and start installation setup file you will get Windows “Program Compatibility Assistant”. Windows 10 warns you about program that there is no publisher name and ask question if you want to proceed anyway. If you reach this point then everything is OK and you will install ShixxNOTE newest version. Many people are afraid and they click as Microsoft told them and they simply abort installation or download.

I think that Windows 10 is a great OS better than 8.1 and it is cool. So maybe I will have to modify my setup program to be trusted by Microsoft and then write some manifest which will tell Microsoft that ShixxNOTE is program which can be trusted. Never mind maybe one day they will release some update and make this process easier.

After you have installed ShixxNOTE program on your computer with Windows 10 running on it everything works as usual. I received mail that sending note via email is not working. I need to check this problem. But if you set that Outlook is your default email program I think sening notes via email will work.

Here are some screen shots of ShixxNOTE 6.net running on Windows 10 computer. Enjoy 🙂

If you want to see program icon always you need to set task bar properties as on image below.

Try it and you will see that it is better than Windows Sticky notes which doesn’t have anything with communication. Till then use ShixxNOTE program as a stickies and for instant messaging.

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 😉

Sending email note

May 5, 2015 5 comments

Hello,

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 somebody@gmail.com 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).

EmailNote_1

Outlook mail with all data necessary for ShixxNOTE program to create you same note on your desktop.

EmailNote_2

Outlook mail with picture of ShixxNOTE note sended to you.

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.

Kind regards,
