  1. Hi, Kenny!

    I just tried installing 3.0, but all I get is a very brief flash of the “Preparing to install” window (the first screenshot above), and then the program exits. I had 2.1 running in the system tray, but I quit out of that before installing 3.0. Anything else I should try?

    • The first thing to check is that you are installing Window Clippings 3 on Windows 7 or Windows Vista. For Windows XP you need to continue using Window Clippings 2.1. If you are running Windows Vista please make sure your computer is fully updated by running Windows Update. Make sure you have all the recommended updates including the “Platform Update for Windows Vista”.

  2. I run Win7 64 bit. I downloaded the 3.0 version and enteredd my license number. However, when I click on the icon on the quick start area near the Start, I get the capture screen. When I go to the OPtions section and then about, I am told that I have version 2.1. How can I get the shortcut to be updated and/or how to uninstall the old version.

    • Version 2.1 did not include an installer. You need to close Window Clippings 2.1 and remove any shortcuts that you’ve created. Then you can download and install Window Clippings 3. If you have already installed Window Clippings 3 you should find a shortcut to it in the Start menu. You can then verify that you have the right version.

  3. I used version 2.1 and updated to 3.0. The license to 2.1 could be used to 3.0 version? Because i’m trying to install 3.0 and the license used in 2.1 didn’t pass in online activation.

    • You need to obtain a new license key for Window Clippings 3. If you previously purchased a license for Window Clippings 2.x you should have received a complimentary license for Window Clippings 3. These licenses were mailed out a few days ago. If you haven’t received your new license key just let me know.

      • Just contact me ( and provide any information you have about your original license. You might have changed email addresses but I can check once you send me an email with your details.

  4. How do I get automatic File Naming to work? I have specified —() but am prompted to enter/type a filename every time.

    • Make sure that the “Save to disk” action is set to “Automatically save in this folder”. Then you can define the file naming scheme on the “File Naming” tab.

  5. How many activations do we get? I’ve activated mine maybe three times and now it’s telling me I can’t use it anymore. So, if we format our hard drives a couple time, out of choice or necessity, we invalidate our license keys?

    • Simply e-mail us (info@…) with the license key and, if possible, the e-mail address you used when you purchased Window Clippings in the first place. We will reset your activation count on demand.
