So I clicked on the link and read that thread, too. But it didn't help. I guess I'm not understanding something.
My computer crashed without backup, but I was able to retrieve my hard drive intact. I downloaded and installed Stickies V9.0e. I have no idea what version was on my old computer before it died.
I downloaded, extracted, and ran SSIT and used the Open button to successfully find my old stickies on my old hard drive (now an external drive). Everything I want to recover is there. However, when I select a sticky, or a whole list of stickies (say, Desktop) and press the Send to Stickies button, nothing happens.
