Just wanted to post a solution that DC member App103 provided for an error someone had installing Screenshot Captor on Windows Server 2008:

<dcmk001> After installing Screenshot Captor on my MS Terminal Server 2008R2 I get a system error “The Program can’t start because STI.DLL is missing ….” I reinstalled and still got this err. Any advice?

"I saw your question in the chat room but by that time you had already left. I believe I can help with this problem.

This is a system file and not a part of the Screenshot Captor application.

This dll is normally located in the system folder on XP and Vista, but is not installed by default on Windows Server 2008.

Sti.dll is a component for Windows Still Imaging and provides a means of programmatically acquiring digital still images from cameras and scanners.

You can install this component by installing the Desktop Experience feature using Server Manager.

To do this, follow these steps:

   1. Click Start, click Administrative Tools, and then double-click Server Manager.
   2. In Server Manager, click Add Features under Features Summary.
   3. In the Add Features Wizard dialog box, make sure that the Desktop Experience option is selected.
   4. Click Next, and then click Install.
   5. After the installation process is complete, click Close, and then close Server Manager.

Note After you install Desktop Experience, you have to restart the computer.

I havn't found any other mentioned issues with Server 2008 on forum, so I write here)
I have Windows Server 2008 32 bit (not R2), after installing Desktop Experience I face another error, that API-MS-Win-Core-LocalRegistry-L1-1-0.dll is missed.
And ScreenShot Captor crashed(
Have anybody the same issue? Where the problem?
