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.

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.

@xor
Better report your problems at the forum, the developer usually responds to bug reports and other issues. Of course you are not dumb. Did you change the initial location of StackNotes folder- it remembers the location of the last used file.

Software is certified by SoftPedia as beeing "Clean of virus, spywares, adwares". The reason why it was reported as beeing "potentially malicious" at SourceForge was due to the AES encryption command line tool included with the package. This tool is no more distributed with the package and can optionnaly be downloaded from the "AES Crypt" website if needed.
