    Wow, a program that does not work AT ALL. It does not even open, no matter what one does. Is this program not meant for Windows 3.1 or around there? A simply notes program that can even open, must be VERY bad.

    Hello, I am the developer of the software.

    The software works on any Windows version, give it a chance and read the “IMPORTANT ReadME.txt” file from the archive.
    If your antivirus warns you, please note that is a false positive and the file is actually safe.
    Disable your antivirus for 1 minute while you activate the license and allow internet access.
    Or you can try and buy the regular version (not giveaway), that will not require online activation and will not trigger antivirus warning.

    WOW!!! The developer said, “Or you can try and buy the regular version (not giveaway), that will not require online activation and will not trigger antivirus warning.”
    Now that is certainly encouraging (NOT)!!!

    When I tried to run it as administrator, it gave me a runtime error 217 at a memory address (different each time I run it).
    Does NOT work!!!
    It also gave me a virus warning, so I am deleting this.

    I used the website link on the giveaway page. It works (of course) but the site main title is “Asman WEBSITE”.

    Thanks, Captain Obvious ! When I click a website link, I expect to go to a website.

    “There is no need to register it because it registers for you automatically when you download from us.”
    I ended up with the Demo version, the ACTIVATE GIVEAWAY LICENSE produces only an error message each time, and my app remains unactivated. This is totally unacceptable. Can anyone help? And yes, I clicked to run it as an Administrator.

    Hi Alan,

    This is because “Windows Defender” or your antivirus have blocked the “Activate.exe” file.
    Try to add it to exclusions and will work. The file is safe! If don’t trust it, is your right to not use my software.

    1 hit at VirusTotal – need to fix that.

    Even if I install it and try it, I feel like my computer will need to take a shower afterwards – scrubbing what a few different anti malware disinfectants!

    Ashraf, can we make a new policy that ONLY 100% clean programs ( according to VirusTotal ) will be offered at SOS SharewareOnSale – win win win for everyone involved, for you, for the vendor, and for our fellow participants?

    Oh, it crashed and would not install – whew, that saves me a bit of worry.

    See you all tomorrow ( and over at BDJ and GOTD ).

    To Manuel, thank you for your reply. I duly temporarily disabled my antivirus, and the app did indeed activate! However another problem arose when I closed the app (with the antivirus still disabled) I got the recurrent error message “A Fail Fast Exception occurred.” What now?

    Try this:
    At file properties, select “Run this program in compatibility mode for: Windows XP (Service Pack 3)”

    I like to support developers that use this site to get us to try their software. In this case I’m not so sure. The website says this software is for Win 2000, Win XP, Win 7. Program looks like it was a labor of love by a programmer with little experience, back in 2005. There’s no support for embedded pictures or embedded links to files or websites. I can’t tell what it does that I can’t already do in many other programs, including Efficient Notes given away here recently, or a Wordpad file stored in an encrypted ZIP. I see no way to organize notes or note tags (I prefer tags because a note can easily belong to more than one category, and then there must be a way to build an indented list of tags so I can keep them organized and make sure I use the same tags, same spelling, etc., when they apply). I can’t imagine storing thousands of notes in something like this with no way to find them again except by searching for words they might contain. And it’s odd to me that a separate function to search by titles only, is needed to improve search speed. I enjoyed using a program in DOS days (1985?) called Tornado Notes, that would instantly show all notes on screen that contained the characters you typed, as soon as you typed them. Those notes were all stored in a single text file. So how can search speed be an issue over 20 years later?

    The good news is that there is interest here, enough that people will risk inviting this into their PC even with a virus warning. So, Manuel (developer), an update to this program to add more capabilities might pay off for everyone!
