I used for years this solution: https://superuser.com/a/1173332/458487 linking to https://www.winhelponline.com/blog/get-classic-sticky-notes-windows-10-anniversary/
After December 2018 "Feature update to Windows 10, version 1809", it no longer works, tested on both Windows 10 Home and Windows 10 Professional (Home OS build 17763.194).
I copied the old stikynot exe and mui files into the System32 folder (including the MUI file to the en-US folder) as usual after bigger update, but it won't run. The task is starting for a second or two, either displaying name Sticky Notes when MUI file is present, or no name at all f I delete it, there's no icon and it silently ends without ever showing anything. Any ideas how to fix it?
I tried downloading SNTSearch.dll, doesn't help.
Thank you very much! I don't want to use the obnoxious Metro-styled new Sticky Notes - either I repair this, or will find an alternative. But I grew used to the look and ease of use.
EDIT: On other machine I haven't purged the Windows.old folder yet, and when I run it from System32 there, it starts. So we're probably missing some other DLL. Any idea how to find out which? Are there any logs anywhere? I'm not that familiar with debugging under Windows unfortunately.
