Fixed in 1.8.2
I updated CintaNotes to version 1.8 and now it will not start up. Watching processexplorer, I see the process starting, then immediately terminating. I have tried uninstalling and reinstalling.
One point of interest: I have always had CintaNotes installed in my C:\shareware folder, which is protected in the same way that C:\Program Files is protected. This has always worked fine, but today in trying to debug this problem I noticed that there is no CintaNotes folder in %APPDATA%. I would have expected the database to be there instead of under C:\shareware\CintaNotes, where it is now. So I tried uninstalling and reinstalling under "C:\Program Files (x86)" instead. But there was still no change in behavior, and still no CintaNotes in %APPDATA%. I also tried "C:\Program Files", same result.
Another point of interest: When I start CintaNotes.exe from the Windows command line, I get a popup box which says, "Debugger is found on this machine", before it terminates. I'm not sure what debugger it has found. I believe at one time I had Microsoft Visual C++ installed on this system, but haven't used it for years.
I'm using Windows 7.

Jeff, we'll do our best to resolve this problem. But please see above: I still need some info from you.
All older versions of CN are available for download from here: http://cintanotes.com/files/old
Jeff, the problem occurs because of the software protector we are using to prevent cracking CN. I've already contacted the software's vendor, and they are preparing a fixed version. As soon as they deliver a fix, I'll release an update that should fix this problem, so please stay put! Thanks for your patience.
Jeff, could you please try this version: http://cintanotes.com/files/beta/CintaNotes_1_8_2_Beta1.zip
1.8.2_Beta1 works perfectly. Thanks!
