    Unless you have Vista Home Basic, it will be included with the Operating System. That means you don't have to download it, it should already be in Start > All Programs > Accessories. If it isn't there you may have to activate it.
    Go to Control Panel
    Open Program and Features (you may have to click Programs first)
    In the task pane on the left, click Turn Windows features on or off.
    Give the necessary permission to UAC
    Check Tablet PC Optional Components.
    Click OK.
    Wait for it to do it's configuration.

    If you DO have Vista Home Basic, you can't use the Snipping tool as it isn't distributed separately from Windows. You'd have to use the old fashioned way: screenshots and a graphics editor.

    What do you mean "Snipping Tool continues to not "open""? Can you see it in accessories but are unable to run it?
