Windows Firewall Issue

February 28, 2018 2 comments

Hello,

Many times my customers write me after they have purchased program. Common reason is that some computers can send and receive note and some computer(s) can only send or only receive note. I always reply to my customers and write them to make sure that Windows Firewall settings are correct, meaning that ShixxNOTE program have opened default port 2000 for communication. So you can open default port 2000 or gave permission to ShixxNOTE program in Windows Firewall settings. This is always happening because when customer install program on a computer and then start program for the first time, Windows Firewall dialog prompts and they doesn’t know what to click on it.

So now I will put Windows Firewall images and what customer or simple 30-days trial user must click when program is installed and started first time on the computer. If you install program on Windows XP then you will get this dialog where you must click on the Unblock button like on an image below.

If you are installing ShixxNOTE on Windows 7 or Windows 10 you will get again Windows Firewall dialog where you must click on Allow Access button like on an image below.

If you do this at the program first start up you will have no problems later with sending or receiving notes.

Make ShixxNOTE icon to appear on the TaskBar

January 8, 2018 Leave a comment

Hello folks,

If you have Windows 10 with latest update (I stopped counting how many times I had to update my OS) installed on your computer, than I would like to show you how to make ShixxNOTE icon visible in your taskbar.

Microsoft release update and than you have to uninstall VPN client just to get network That is my example. So now I am scared when I see that new Update is available 🙂 But lets just put ShixxNOTE icon always visible.

First you need to right mouse click on taskbar and select Taskbar settings iIconTaskbar_2018-01-08_00tem from menu. That item has this image beside.

After that you will get this image where you have to click on “Select which icons appear on the taskbar”.

IconTaskbar_2018-01-08_01

Then you only need to set ShixxNOTE icon to On. After that and after every next Windows 10 start up you will see ShixxNOTE icon in the corner 🙂

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 🙂

New Program Home Page

January 14, 2016 2 comments

Before one month finally I decided to create and publish new ShixxNOTE Program Home Page site on same URL: www.shixxnote.com

New web site is ASP.NET web application but I don’t need to much of .NET Framework so I just used HTML5, CSS and some JavaScripts to make site cool and refreshing. I also left link to old site but I think soon I will remove it. I hope you like it 🙂

Here are some screen shots of it bellow.
