AndTheWolf - It's fixed. Some editors keep pointing to static URLs instead of the download page for some reason. So, when it's updated, the download winds up wrong.

Belatedly noticed FocusWriter's hefty 138MB footprint,
a tad rich for an alleged "minimalistic" word processor...;-)

philippe: true. I'll add a note that the minimalism refers to the interface.

Ignore my previous comment. I am an idiot. It actually uses an old version of Sumatra, which was faster and lighter.

Midas on 2015-12-24 15:59

@ripu: you shouldn't be so hard on yourself, mistakes happen. :)

Version is now: v9.0e.

billon on 2019-12-25 13:24

Alternative extraction method:

Open installer in 7-Zip like "Parser" (File > 7-Zip > Open archive > # or File > Open Inside #);
You'll see four ZIPs inside;
In 2.zip - stickies.exe, in 4.zip - stickies.chm, in 6.zip - stickies8.ssk, which should be in "skins" folder, and in 8.zip - mdb2db.exe, which seems converts data DB to the new format and only need if you upgrade from the previous version.

In order to use old version notes with the new 10.0a version you hve to UPGRADE from old version to the new 10.0a. You can NOT restore the working folder from a backup because v10.0a uses SQLITE.

@ smaragdus: Thanks ... and updated ;)

I have tried and used several search apps before and was not very impressed but as soon as I saw that this product was from NirSoft I knew I had to try it. NirSoft makes so many great apps that I use a lot, its difficult to say something new about them due to the fact that just about everything they make works great and is pretty awesome overall. One thing is 4sure the native Micro$oft search engine is close to worthless, so just about anything will be an improvement.
