Those errors are usually due to low resources. Sometimes they
may be caused by certain file(s). It/they may open fine a few at
a time, but when trying to load them all on startup is a
different matter. If you get error messages like Win32 API,
TClipbookList, Exception EWin32Error, NoteTab freezes, or seems
to freeze up (which might be loading many MB) sometimes it can
happen on startup because you had too many large documents to
reload from when you last had NoteTab open. (Sometimes a reboot
takes care of it if you have not done that yet, or closing other
programs that may open when you start up Windows.)
You may need to remove the files from NoteTab Pro's ini file;
NotePro.ini found in its main folder. Try opening an editor that
will read text documents like Notepad or Wordpad and open
NotePro.ini found in its main folder. Scroll down till you get
to the [Autoload] section and remove all the paths to the files
to reload on startup. You might want to try it from a fresh
Windows boot up as well. You can copy the file paths/names so
that you can open the same files again easier when you get
You may edit the INI file inside NoteTab if you are able to open
it. Simply save the file with an exclamation mark (!NotePro.ini
or !NoteTab.ini; Pro or Std/Light respectively) in front of it
and restart NoteTab. Some programs have memory leaks in them as
well as some Windows versions like WinME/Win98. Some programs do
not release all the memory they were using while open. That can
add up to not having enough memory for programs to start causing
all kinds of errors.
More information about memory:
Windows has basically three types of memories: RAM, Virtual
Memory (your hard disk), and a small section of RAM used for
storing Windows object handles. When Windows runs out of system
resources, it may have plenty of RAM left, but it runs out of
space for storing handles. This is often when funny things start
happening like the tab bar displaying blank tabs, or the Toolbar
showing no icons.
Only libraries open in the Clipbook window will occupy RAM. The
more items, and the larger the Clips, the more RAM it uses up.
Running Clips that create variables will take another chunk from
RAM. Closing the Clipbook window will free several handles which
occupy the third type of memory.
Some things in NoteTab can cause extra memory to be used are:
Large amounts of Favorites and long lists slow down the loading
of NoteTab and use up a fair amount of RAM.
A large Undo limit size. What is considered large is largely
dependant on how many documents you open. Should rarely be a
problem if you open less than 50 documents at a time.
