ShixxNOTE Your network neighborhood list and LAN

Hello,

If you don't see nothing in your network neighborhood list when you try to send note to somebody, then read this post. Probably you have Windows 10 and all necessary updates. Like me. On Windows XP, Windows Seven and also on first edition of Windows 10, that list was always full with names of computers in your LAN. Now today you see nothing. Also you don't see your computer. But if you look below you will see your name of computer. So I decide to share with you how can you send and test sending of note to yourself. I decided to send one note to myself. Here below look on my picture first.


I got nothing in my list Network Neighborhood, but below I can see my computer name is OZREN which will be sender's name after I send note to myself. So I entered that name in text box who to send. Simply wrote my computer name OZREN and pressed enter. Then I got in Note Recipient list my computer. So I got one note to send to myself. You can see I also did right mouse click on my computer name and there I got menu where I select option Show IP address. Voila after that I also got my IP address. So I could enter my computer name or IP address in text box.

After I added myself in note recipient list I clicked on button Send note. And off course I got my desktop sticky notes promptly with sound from my speakers.

You can see that in second picture below:


Do it at your home or office and try to send note to the others by entering theirs computer names or IP addresses. It will work on Windows 10 with all cumulative updates. If you have Windows XP or old great Windows 7 you will have not this problems with empty lists.

Stay home because of world pandemic and wait like me for happy end.

Kind regards,

Version 6.net Build 140 May 2018


ShixxNOTE 6.net version Build 140 released in May 2018 is the latest version you can download. There are some minor improvements and few bugs fixed. But cool new (old) feature comes from Windows 10 Update which let setup program to add ShixxNOTE program icon in Start Up list. So now every time you start your Windows program will be also launched. In previous versions of Windows 10 that was normal but then some update disable adding program shortcuts to Start Up folder. So now everything is like before in previous Windows versions.


Second feature is also old but now program is using different command.

When sending note to client which doesn't have ShixxNOTE program installed, program server side will use MSG command to send the message over local network. This feature works only when ShixxNOTE is running on Windows Vista, Windows 7, Windows 8, Windows 10 and Windows Server. Example would be equivalent of writing this command in Command Prompt window:

MSG * /server:TEST-PC "Hello user !!!"

So if computer named TEST-PC doesn't have ShixxNOTE installed it will receive text in message pop out window. If you still use Windows XP or later Windows versions program will then use NET SEND command.

Third new stuff is that now when you finish installation of program and you start it, default note will be created when program is started for a first time automatically.
I hope you will install Trial 30-days version and then after you will register ShixxNOTE 6.net version.

Windows Firewall Issue

Hello,

Many times my customers write me after they have purchased program. Common reason is that some computers can send and receive note and some computer(s) can only send or only receive note. I always reply to my customers and write them to make sure that Windows Firewall settings are correct, meaning that ShixxNOTE program have opened default port 2000 for communication. So you can open default port 2000 or gave permission to ShixxNOTE program in Windows Firewall settings. This is always happening because when customer install program on a computer and then start program for the first time, Windows Firewall dialog prompts and they doesn't know what to click on it.

So now I will put Windows Firewall images and what customer or simple 30-days trial user must click when program is installed and started first time on the computer. If you install program on Windows XP then you will get this dialog where you must click on the Unblock button like on an image below.


If you are installing ShixxNOTE on Windows 7 or Windows 10 you will get again Windows Firewall dialog where you must click on Allow Access button like on an image below.


If you do this at the program first start up you will have no problems later with sending or receiving notes.

Kind regards,

Make ShixxNOTE icon to appear on the TaskBar

If you have Windows 10 with latest update (I stopped counting how many times I had to update my OS) installed on your computer, than I would like to show you how to make ShixxNOTE icon visible in your taskbar.

Microsoft release update and than you have to uninstall VPN client just to get network That is my example. So now I am scared when I see that new Update is available 🙂 But lets just put ShixxNOTE icon always visible.


First you need to right mouse click on taskbar and select Taskbar settings iIconTaskbar_2018-01-08_00tem from menu. That item has this image beside.
After that you will get this image where you have to click on “Select which icons appear on the taskbar”.



Then you only need to set ShixxNOTE icon to On. After that and after every next Windows 10 start up you will see ShixxNOTE icon in the corner 🙂


Kind regards,

Create new note on Windows 10

Hello,

In my last article I wrote that ShixxNOTE is now Windows 10 Compatible and that you can find it on Windows Store. From Windows Store you can download 30-days trial version and you can also buy 25-Users License for 25.00 USD. If you didn't know that now you know. But there is one problem. When you install app from Windows Store and when you get program icon in your Windows 10 Start Menu you will get only small ShixxNOTE icon in taskbar located near clock. Also after you restart computer you must again start program from Start Menu. Old installation had put ShixxNOTE shortcut in your Start Up menu and you wouldn't notice that ShixxNOTE application is started.

If you install program from Windows Store you can do also everything for 30 days trial period. But on every computer start you must manually start program and click program icon or tile in Windows 10 Start Menu. Here is the picture of my Windows Start menu and ShixxNOTE tile.


 ShixxNOTE tile on Windows 10 Start Menu

Soon I will release on Windows Store new version which will start ShixxNOTE program on computer start up. I will announce that on program ShixxNOTE Program Homepage and here.
But if you had install program from Windows Store or you have install program from program download page and started program setup, I must explain to users how you will create new note.

When you start ShixxNOTE you will see Splash screen and then nothing. But you will get new program icon in your task bar located near the clock. Like on the picture bellow.



Many of my users doesn't know how to create note after they see splash screen they don't notice this small icon. Maybe in new version I will create some welcome default note. But if you want to create note you just need to double click on program icon. Second way to create note is to right mouse click on program icon and then you will get main program menu, from there you simply select option "New note". Here on the picture below you can see some previously created notes and main ShixxNOTE program menu.

I hope now first time users will know how to create note(s) and after that send them across your LAN in your office :-)
