  1. I have struggled to solve this problem for nearly half a year – googling once a week for six months!!!- and finally found your post. Halleluiah!! Your post makes me dance in the office. Thx soooooooooooooooooooo much. I’ve sent you a small donation and hope it would be enough for a cup of coffee for you. – from South Korea, Claire.

    1. Claire thank you for your feedback, I am really glad this post helped you! I also find Sticky Notes irreplaceable and don’t understand why original developers decided to abandon it.
      Thank you for your donation, it will be enough for more than a cup of coffee here in Slovenia:)
      I wish you lots of dancing in the office:)

  2. THX!! This was a life saver…. I actually scrapped Evernote and switched to OneNote due to better tablet / handwriting support – but missed the StickyNotes part badly.
    So – activated Evernote again for StickyNotes use only – syncing to 2 pc’s – ove worked (key still there) – other failed!!

    Solved with your .dll file…. 🙂

    Thx for sharing this!!!

  3. Thank you so much for this! Just installed Sticky notes on my new work laptop and had a panic when I saw it was no longer supported lol

  4. Many thanks ! Searched a solution for weeks. Works perfectly now !
    I made a donation for a “cup of tea”. Good luck.

  5. Hi Simon, I have a little question.
    I want to made a shortcut as to get a new note directly with a shortcut key (ctrl + …).
    So, in the shortcut’s properties, I must have in the target line something as : “C:\Program Files (x86)\Evernote Sticky Notes\StickyNotes.Wpf.exe” / …… ?? , but what may I have just after / for adding a new note with Sticky Note ?

    For example with Outlook note I may have this target for a new note : “C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft Office\Office12\OUTLOOK.EXE” /c ipm.stickynote

    By advance, many thanks

    1. Hi Richard, I would first like to thank you for your donation.

      I believe the command line argument you are looking for is /addnote

      “C:\Program Files (x86)\Evernote Sticky Notes\StickyNotes.Wpf.exe” /addnote

      There is no possibility to choose the colour of the new note, it will be yellow by default.

      If you would like to force the synchronisation, the command line argument is /syncnow

      “C:\Program Files (x86)\Evernote Sticky Notes\StickyNotes.Wpf.exe” /syncnow

      I hope this has helped you.

  6. Hi Simon,
    Searched for days!!!!
    Tried the solution and worked with international version of Evernote.
    BUT I am currently using a localized verion of Evernote (for China only, called â€œå°čąĄįŽ”čŪ°â€œ), I cannot login with my localized account.

    As far as I know, they are basically same app with different host severs. Checked with official website, I noticed the Oauth requrest url is https://www.evernote.com/oauth for internation version while https://app.yingxiang.com/oauth for Chinese version.

    Possible to repack a Chinese verions of DLL for me?
    Thanks in advance.

    1. Hello Fan LU,

      thank you for your donation.
      I will modify the dll for you in the next 48 hours and send the modified version to your email.

  7. Many many thanks!
    I have been using Evernote Sticky Notes for three years now and got used to it pretty much, so when I encountered this problem I was pretty upset.
    I am not a rather skilled computer user, to say the least, but the way you explained it seems perfect.
    And it works!
    Thanks a lot!

    1. Hello Dennis,

      I’m glad this is working for you, thank you very much for your donation and your feedback.

  8. I looked a whole night for a solution and you finally offered it!!
    Thank you very much that’s great and so easy to do, just to change the old .dll with your new file.
    Again thanks a lot

  9. Avesome!! Appreciate, many thanks for your solution, my small donation is on the way 🙂 Cheers, Wladimir, Germany

  10. Oh no, help me PLAEEEEEESE.
    i just still couldn’t get the authentification
    “An error occurred – please try again. ”
    I don’t understand at all
    i do it all step by step
    what should i do?

  11. Not working for me unfortunately, although getting a different message:

    “Could not load file or assembly ‘StickyNotes.OAuth, Version-1.5.9.0, Culture=nautral, PlublicKeyToken=null’ or one of its dependencies. The module was expected to contain an assembly manifest.

    Can you maybe help me with this?

    1. Hello, please try re-installing the Sticky Notes software (make sure you have version 1.5.9 installed) and then follow instructions on how to replace the dll file. Restart your computer afterwards.

      1. Thanks for your reply.

        I have tried all possible scenarios without any luck unfortunately.

    You Sir, are amazing!
    I was so bummed when my Evernote StickNotes stopped syncing, and even more so when I read that the original devs had just let it pass.
    I kept it on my PC in hopes that somebody would take up the gauntlet and fix it.
    That someone is/was you.

    From the bottom of my heart, THANK YOU!

    (I am flat broke at the moment, but when I have a couple extra dollars to spare, I will gift a few your way.).

    😀 Happy Day!!! 🙂

    1. Jason you are welcome and thank you for the wonderful comment, it really brightened my day.

  13. I can’t say anything new that people before me didn’t say. Anyhow, thank you for great work.

  14. I don’t know how much a cup of coffee is worth where you are, but I sent 5 euro. Being able to move my notes to my windows 10 laptop is worth it. 🙂

  15. WOW!!!!!!! Thanks so much man from Brazil, you’ve saved me!!!!!!!!!!! 🙂 🙂 🙂

    1. Hello Leandro,

      it hasn’t stopped working, everything works as intended.

      If you describe your issues in more detail, I may be able to help you.
