JSI Tip 9463. You cannot install Snipping Tool version 2.0 from the Microsoft Experience Pack for Tablet PC launcher?

Snipping Tool 2.0 allows you to your tablet pen to select a portion of a Web page or document, add handwritten comments, and paste the results to an email, or anywhere.

If your initial attempt to install Snipping Tool 2.0 is unsuccessful, the Experience Pack for Tablet PC launcher doesn't detect an incomplete installation, so you cannot just try again.

NOTE: You experience strange behavior, like the setup program hangs, or remains on-screen.

To workaround this behavior, configure the Experience Pack for Tablet PC launcher to run the Snipping Tool 2.0 Setup program interactively:

1. Open a CMD.EXE window.

2. Type the following command and press Enter:

REG ADD HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\ExperiencePack /V SnipUI /T REG_SZ /F /D ""
