Description: Be able to use the Snipping Tool on Windows Server 2008.

Tried:
- Copying C:\Windows\System32\SnippingTool.exe from Windows Vista but the tool doesn't show up when opening.

Solution
Source: http://msftguy.blogspot.com/2008/07/sni ... -love.html (Thanks to msftguy at Blogspot)
1. Create a new directory, SnipTool
2. Copy System32\SnippingTool.exe to SnipTool
3. Copy System32\en-US\SnippingTool.exe.mui to SnipTool\en-US
4. Create a file called SnippingTool.exe.local in SnipTool directory.
5. Download this Zip file
6. Extract the contents of the Zip file, copy slc/x86/slc.dll to SnipTool directory (replace x86 with x64 on a 64-bit OS).

Well, I was able to get obtain Microsoft Snapping Tool 2.0 installer, but there the the fun end. I cannot install it because of the Windows XP Tablet PC Edition 2005 requirement. If anybody can remove the installer requirement, here is the installer: http://www.mediafire.com/?ltiir49dz0j

I just installed Windows XP Tablet PC Edition in Hyper-V but after starting the Windows XP Tablet PC Experience Pack setup or the setup you uploaded it still says that only Tablet PC versions are supported... :? As a workaround you can use freeware application Snippy.

Thank you so much for this, I have not found a suitable alternative anywhere!

I'm a little confused though, I've never seen this version of the snipping tool before, the Vista one I'm used to just pops up a small dialog box next to what you've snipped (and opens in default rectangle snip).
Is this an older version?

Thanks again.

Yes, this is Snipping Tool version 2.0 that I took from Experience Pack for Windows XP Tablet PC Edition 2005. The one from Vista doesn't work.
