A customer recently called me and said he was having difficulty clipping websites with Evernote Web Clipper, he would receive the following message:
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
Select the Security tab and then uncheck ‘Enable Protected Mode’. Select OK and restart Internet Explorer.
That solved the issue for me! This was posted by techspeeder.
