Can no longer open .sti files
« Thread started on: Mar 19th, 2017, 4:10pm »
I've been using Stickies for a long time and never had any issues with it (at home or at work), however I ran into a weird problem today; I brought home a new system build I bought (win 10 x64) and transferred all my files from my old PC to this new PC. (I've been using the latest version 9.0d). Visual Studio was missing so I downloaded it and installed that first.
I can see all of my .sti files (files associations all set ok) in explorer, but when I double-click on any of them (or right-click "open with") the sticky file won't open at all. Stickies.exe in running (checked the task-bar, 32 bit)...on top of it another weird thing is I can create a new sticky file and type in text, etc...but if I save it, close it and then try to re-open the newly saved file it won't open.
What do you think this can be? What can I do? I really need stickies to work since I have a lot of to-do lists and important info on all of them. (I know I can recover the text via notepad but I don't want to stop using Stickies, its the best!)

Ok well I got it to work: I noticed that Visual Studio x86 was getting installed to my D: drive instead of my C: where Windows is (it's a new build where my old HDD had windows on it previously and formatted but now the OS is on my SDD)...I disconnected my HDD (D: ) and rebooted, and re-installed VS again (now on the C: )...and Stickies works again.
I just don't know why VS was installing to my D: (old windows HDD) directly all the time? In disk management it isnt active or a system drive, what the heck?
