Q. Why doesn't my launch button work ?

A. See programming Launch buttons below with some useful examples and information.

. How do I  purchase this program ?

A. You can purchase the registration code by going to the purchase page. You can buy the registration  code for a low price, allow 24-48 hours to recieve your registration code. Enter it into the trial screen, click register. This will remove the trial screen and allow you to continue to use the program as long as you want

The trial version when day zero is reached prevents the program from running until the registration is entered.. We advise ordering the registration code before the trial period expires. Any work you have done will not be impacted, but after 14 days the program will not allow you to use it until you enter the registration code.

Q. Why will this program not work on all screen resolutions ?

A.  ArisNote 2017 was designed to look as good as possible. On wide screens and certain monitor screens, it is hard to automatically make the program look good on all screens. So we selected the more common screen resolutions to custom adjust the screen to look the best for that screen resolution. While it was a lot of work, it does give you the user a better look and feel. ArisNote 2017 was designed mainly for wide screen laptops and wide screen desk top monitors. While this may not work on all monitors, it will work on many newer systems and many screen resolutions. It doesn't work well on older, slower systems.

Q. How can I print a note ?

A. Arisnote 2017 does not have a print function. If you need to print a note, you can use wordpad or your favorite Word Processor. Copy and paste the Note into the Word Processor and Print it.  One of the programable buttons can be used to launch Wordpad or your favorite Word Processors, the choice is up to you.

Q. I can't get the programable launch button to work ?

A. Make sure there are no spaces or qoutation marks in front of the path. Also make sure your launched program supports arguments. Many do, many don't. It can take a little work to get the launch buttons to work the way you want. But once you have them programmed, they are nice to have. Access a favorite program with the touch of a button. Granted you have a taskbar, but it can be a hassle to launch certain programs and load certain files, like spreadsheet files, etc.

Q. When I delete a file using the Delete/-Rename  Folders and Notes why doesn't it update the File Access Tree ?

A. You need to right click in the Tree FIle Access, then click Refresh Directory. This manually updates the File Tree.

Q. Why won't ArisNote 2017 close or allow me to exit ?
A,. Some forms like Lockbox and New Folders and Notes need to be closed before the main program will close.


The launch buttons are a very useful tool. But it take some effort to get it right. The path name must not have any spaces in front of it or be in qoutation marks. You can often get the path from a programs property. Then copy it to the Launch Option. But need to get exactly right.

Here are some useful Examples


Launch Name:  Outlook 2016
PathName:       C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft Office\root\Office16\OUTLOOK.EXE 

Launch Name:  Excel 2016
PathName:       C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft Office\root\Office16\EXCEL.EXE

Note the argument if you have an Excel 2016 spreadsheet on your desktop, this would launch it. Just
change \john6\ to your user name.


Launch Name:   Edge   (Browser)
Path Name:        microsoft-edge:http://www.arisnote.com

Note the path name has http//www.arisnote.com to just run the Edge browser you would omit the
http//www.arisnote.com which would normally go in the Argument, note with Edge but you can
insert any website you want...


Launch Name:  File Explorer
Pathname:         Explorer
Arguments:        C:\Program Files (x86)\ArisNote\Notes

Note in  this example the path will show the ArisNote 2017 directory


Launch Name:   Word 2016
Pathname:          C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft Office\root\Office16\WINWORD.EXE

Note you can add a link to a Word file in arguments to start a specific document


Hope this helps.
