    Ive noticed that when i put a shortcut of snipping tool into object dock ,it wont open and says it cant locate the file.When trying to browse to the snipping tool location from within objectdock ,i am suprised to see no snipping tool listed and indeed the system 32 location shows different files(the image on the left is system 32 when browsing from within objectdock ,and the image on the right is system 32 when using windows explorer to browse)?Can anyone explain how this happens and why ?.Im using Windows 7 64 bit

    It works for me with both OD 1.95 and the new v2 Beta dock on Win7 32 bit.

    I can drag the exe or shortcut to the Snipping Tool on the dock and launch them, i think it's an issue with Object Dock and 64 bit.

    Thanks for taking the time to check it out.Ive just checked system requirements at website,and your right....it seems it supports 32 bit ,but no mention of 64bit.Although everything seems to work fine apart from snipping tool at present.
    Thanks again for checking

    Try specifying the location manually using c:\windows\sysnative\snippingtool.exe. Reason: file system redirection.
