I have windows 7 ultimate build 7600,but i can't seem to find the snipping tool anywhere

It used to be there,but i can't find it anymore,I tried the start menu search,but no use

it's not even in the accessories menu

I also tried to reinstall the "tablet PC" part in "windows features" but that also didn't work

what has gone wrong?

Recreate a shortcut to it in the Start Menu. The target is %windir%\system32\SnippingTool.exe.

Maybe it was inadvertently removed?

I upgraded to Windows 7 and the snipping tool IS most definitely there. I know this because I saw it on the start menu as soon as I clicked the 'start' icon.

I'm running Ultimate, so maybe it's only in that SKU.
