      1. Create a new directory, SnipTool
      2. Copy System32SnippingTool.exe to SnipTool
      3. Copy System32en-USSnippingTool.exe.mui to SnipToolen-US
      4. Create a file called SnippingTool.exe.local in SnipTool directory.
      5. Download this Zip file
      6. Extract the contents of the Zip file, copy slc/x86/slc.dll to SnipTool directory (replace x86 with x64 on a 64-bit OS).

      Well, I was able to get obtain Microsoft Snapping Tool 2.0 installer, but there the the fun end. I cannot install it because of the Windows XP Tablet PC Edition 2005 requirement. If anybody can remove the installer requirement, here is the installer: http://www.mediafire.com/?ltiir49dz0j

      I just installed Windows XP Tablet PC Edition in Hyper-V but after starting the Windows XP Tablet PC Experience Pack setup or the setup you uploaded it still says that only Tablet PC versions are supported… 😕 As a workaround you can use freeware application Snippy.

      OK, I finally get the Snipping Tool to work on Windows Server 2008 and it can be download here: http://www.mediafire.com/?3ed04mmxx9h

      Thank you so much for this, I have not found a suitable alternative anywhere!

      I’m a little confused though, I’ve never seen this version of the snipping tool before, the Vista one I’m used to just pops up a small dialog box next to what you’ve snipped (and opens in default rectangle snip).
      Is this an older version?

      Thanks again.

      Yes, this is Snipping Tool version 2.0 that I took from Experience Pack for Windows XP Tablet PC Edition 2005. The one from Vista doesn’t work.
