    1. Hi,

      Not really. I does have a XP copy running Aero Snap without any problem. May be try to reinstall? Possibly you haven’t had the .net 2.0 installed?

    1. Hi Suneet,

      Yes, I did install the Aero Snap Version 0.61 Beta as I believe that is the latest version from the author and it works well for me. Do you have .net 2.0 framework installed in your Windows? Which Windows you are using anyway? I am using it in my copy of Windows XP without problem. Do you mind to elaborate more about the problem you encountered?
