Lost Snipping Tool

Posted: 01-18-2009, 04:34 PM
A little while ago I Turned off the Tablet PC Optional Components not
realising that the Snipping Tool was part of it. I am having problems
turning it back on. Every time I try I get an error saying "An error has
occurred. Not all of the features were successfully changed". There's no
error number and the "Accessories/Tablet PC folder is empty.
Can anyone please help as I need to use the Snipping Tool.

Hi,

Try disabling your antivirus software first.

Hi,

Yes, delete the folder the components are trying to install to.

Hello Rick,
I have now tried many things, including deleting the Tablet PC folder. I
have also taken off all of my virus protection.
The Snipping Tool gets installed to the Accessories folder. I am worried
about deleting that folder in case I loose more components and are unable to
reinstall or switch them back on.
Do you have any other suggestions as I have now run out of ideas.
Eddie

The snipping tool, SnippingTool.exe lives in your system32 folder, ( c:\windows\system32).

Right-click on your desktop.
Select 'New > Shortcut '.
In the box browse to c:\windows\system32.
Find SnippingTool.exe .
Click on it to select it.
Click OK > Next > Finish.
