I'm using Office 2007 under Windows 7. I have a button on an Excel worksheet which shells to the Snipping Tool to allow the
user to capture part of the screen:-
Shell "c:windowssystem32snippingtool.exe", vbNormalFocus

This returns a Run-time error 53 File not found. The same happens if I run that command from the Immediate window (or
in fact from MS Access). However if I put Notepad.exe in the Shell command, Notepad starts without a hitch.
SnippingTool.exe is definitely in C:WindowsSystem32 and it runs okay from the Start Run... button. It also works okay under
Why should Notepad run but not the Snipping Tool? Has anyone else come across this? Can anyone with Windows
7 confirm their system exhibits the same behaviour?
