Thank you. This one works. Despite the problem with ver. 1.61 this is a very well-designed and well-written program. Thanks for your help.

Cheers,
Jim

It turns out I can't use that older version because it won't let me enter the registration info. A message pops up saying that version is outdated.

Works, but occasionally integrates only the first time, then XNote Stopwatch closes. This problem is not consistent.

Works, but the XNote window where the numbers are displayed goes black as soon as I do the first integration: can't see the numbers on the clock anymore, however, it continues counting because the Excel integration still works if I use the "Snap" hotkey.

Works perfectly. I will use this one for now.


The Excel integration works on all of the older builds without the "Installing COM component" window continually popping up during the setup. I uninstalled version 1.61 and reinstalled it and it still has the same problem. Therefore, I think the problem must be with version 1.61 and not with Excel.

I hope this helps.

I.e pops up too?

Unfortunately exactly 1.60 no (so many builds were).

I just registered the program yesterday and have version 1.61. Would it be possible to get version 1.60 just to try it? I really like your program and everything works very well except for the "Installing COM component" window that pops up repeatedly while setting up the Excel integration. As I said previously, the Excel integration does work: it's just the initial set up that is a problem.

I don't know. If it was so clear I have fixed it immediately.

I accidentally posted that previous message as "Guest". Sorry.

It seems to me something must have changed with the Excel integration on the XNote Stopwatch side if the person who posted the original question had it working properly with version 1.60 and it stopped working with version 1.61.

The integration works fine IF I'm able to select the correct file & data sheet between times when the "Installing COM component" window pops open, but it's a real pain in the butt. This would also seem to indicate that the problem is with XNote Stopwatch.

My computer runs VISTA (Which sucks!) and I have Excel 2003, which I have no intention of upgrading.
