Hi All ,

I have a problem with the upgradation of SnagIt Application. Normally if i install the application and launch the shortcut ,there won't be any "Tip of the Day" popping up but if upgrade the application from the older version , then there will be "Tip of the Day" popping up by launching the application.
Moreover in the "Tip of the Day" window there is a checkbox "show tips at startup " checked . how can i disable the "Tip of the Day" window so that it won't appear after launching the shortcut.

Thanks in Advance

  • I already tired to disable "Tip of the Day" window for my adobe visual communicator application. I changed the value from 1 to 0 in AppSetting3.xml under C:\Users\loginUser\AppData\Local\Adobe\Adobe Visual Communicator 3. It really works for me.

Hi Prasjanth,

For your problem, first you install your source, after that you tack a first picture tacker after that you launch your application shortcut and then manually disable that Tip of the Day check box and close your application and then tack second picture tacker.
You will got the HKLM registries, those registeris you can add in your application.
After that tip of the day dialog box should not be come.

I think, those registries path might be " HKLM\Software\"Your application name"\UI\Tip " or you can directlly change that registry value from 1 to 0, if that registry present in ur application already.

I should think that most vendors would put this kind of customisation data in the HKEY_CURRENT_USER hive, rather than HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE.

Anyway, the general advice is good. However, a snapshotting tool is over-the-top fot his kind of change, since it will in most cases be one registry value. So, use a process or registry monitor as you make the change. It will highlight the registry key in use and the value assigned to it, which you can then add to your package.

Lastly, it could - in the case of legacy applications - equally be stored in an INI file or some other data file so you may need to use a file monitor instead.
