I know. I thought you guys might have a trick to make it stealth

joby_toss on 2011-12-12 05:26

@mrpink: you could use JauntePE to take care of those registry keys; or some other wrapper.

Great program!
@Checker
Can fun be pointless?

Checker on 2013-11-02 18:48

@ smaragdus: In this case it couldn't be point-less ;)

I should confess that I love pointless things created for the sake of being pointless, which is not pointless;)

Stickies v10.1b Updated

Andrew Lee on 26 Mar 2022

Stickies work like customizable post-it notes with available styles, fonts, colors and buttons. Notes can be resized or snapped to the edges of other notes to keep them lined up. They can also act as reminders when hidden for a period, until a specified date and time, even upon waking every day, week, or month.

Alternatively, Stickies Portable is available.

Runs on:Win7 / Win8 / Win10
Writes settings to: Application folder
Stealth: ? Yes
Unicode support: Yes
License: Freeware
How to extract:
  1. Download the installer and install to the default folder
  2. Copy folder Stickies to your preferred place
  3. Uninstall the program
  4. Create 2 empty files called stickies.ini and stickies.db in the application folder
  5. Launch stickies.exe

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.

Pendrive on 2022-03-25 15:30

I'm not convinced that the following instructions are sufficient:
How to extract:
1 Download the installer and install to the default folder.
2 Copy folder Stickies to your preferred place.
3 Uninstall the program.
4 Create an empty file called stickies.ini in the application folder.
5 Launch stickies.exe.

I think 4 should be:
4 Create two empty files called stickies.ini and stickies.db in the application folder.

@Pendrive: Thanks! I have verified your correction and updated the database entry.
