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.

Kind regards,

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.

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 🙂

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.
