IE10 Evernote Web Clipper Error: We cannot establish connection with Evernote application

A customer recently called me and said he was having difficulty clipping websites with Evernote Web Clipper, he would receive the following message:

Evernote Web Clipper Error

We cannot establish connection with Evernote application. Most likely you have ‘Enhanced Protected Mode’ enabled. To enable Evernote Clipper please preform following steps:              1. Navigate to Tools->Internet Options-> Advanced                                                                        2. In Security section unmark ‘Enable Enhanced Protected Mode’                                                3. Save changes                                                                                                                                  4. Restart Internet Explorer                                                                                                              If it does not help, please submit support ticket at http://support.evernote.com

Our customer was running Internet Explorer 10 and apparently the security settings didn’t allow Evernote Clipper to clip web pages.

Troubleshooting: I checked to see if ‘Enhanced Protected Mode’ was enabled and it wasn’t. I then tried clipping a different webpage and I got the same result.

Solution: Open Internet Explorer and click the ‘gear’ icon in the right-hand corner

Internet Settings                            and select Internet Options.

Select the Security tab and then uncheck ‘Enable Protected Mode’. Select OK and restart Internet Explorer.

Security

 

That solved the issue for me! This was posted by techspeeder.
