Open .vnt VNote files on computer?

    I emailed one of my Memo files to myself, so I could get the text on my computer instead of re-typing it. What I got was a file ending in .vnt, which nothing seems to be able to read productively. Opening it with notepad, I get:

    [FONT=&quot]BEGIN:VNOTE[/FONT]
    [FONT=&quot]VERSION:1.1[/FONT]
    [FONT=&quot]BODY;CHARSET=UTF-8;ENCODING=QUOTED-PRINTABLE:SHOPPING IN RENO=0D=0Aice=0D=0AFrozen oven dinner=0D=0AIce cream=0D=0Abeer? (nb Walmart lousy selection)[/FONT]
    [FONT=&quot]DCREATED:20100916T123245[/FONT]
    [FONT=&quot]LAST-MODIFIED:20100916T123245[/FONT]
    [FONT=&quot]END:VNOTE[/FONT]


    [FONT=&quot]The text is all in there, but so junked up with coding that of of course it's easier to just open it. Anyone know any way to productively mail memo files to ourselves or others?

    have you tried renaming the extension in windows to open it with another application?

    I've tried opening the file with other programs, but none seem to know what to do with it. The closest I came was when I tried opening it with MS Word 2010, and got the error message:
    Word cannot start the converter SSPDFCG_x64.cnv
    I tried googling SSPDFCG_x64.cnv and found a site telling me to delete the file, which I am sceptical of since it's common bit of e-vandalism to get people to delete important files. Anyway, I found SSPDFCG_x64.cnv, sort of, in
    c:\program files (x86)\Common Files\Microsoft Shared
    (except that
    SSPDFCG_x64.cnv appeared from a search but not when I actually clicked on the directory, but I'm still trying to figure out Windows 7). Anyway, I renamed SSPDFCG_x64.cnv, then tried opening the file (2010-09-16.12.32.45.vnt) again with Word. This time it opened the same as with Notepad, showing the text with computerese mixed in. So, I restored the .cnv file.

    Grab an decoder for Quoted-Printable and just put the middle section of the vnote in there. I used http://www.motobit.com/util/quoted-printable-decoder.asp to do the conversion on the note I had sent over via Bluetooth.

    Hope this helps.

    hi guys. for some reason when i send .vnt files (notes) from my SE elm to the x10 via bluetooth - the elm says "item not accepted by other device". does this mean that android smartphones (or rather, SE) does not support .vnt note files? is there an optional editor/reader app that is compatible?

    I have the same issue. Completely perplexed by this...why would android let us email our notes in a file format that is not supported natively on most PC's? I figured this would be a simple text email. Why is this even sent as an attachment? Many thanks for someone that can help me figure out how to open this, but emailing notes seems unviable unless you are sending this to another android device.

    I've created a small script to convert from vnt to txt. You can download it from https://bitbucket.org/eug48/vnote2txt/downloads. Windows users - please install Python (Python Programming Language – Official Website) and double-click on the vnote2txt.pyw script after downloading it. You can also examine it in notepad to make sure it doesn't do anything nasty ;)

    Using this script, I've been able to get Samsung Galaxy S2 memos via the Dropbox app, and convert them to txt.

    Someone should write an Android app to do this automatically though..

    Hope this helps!

    Every forum I searched, including this one, give several different solutions for the VNT file problem, which involve installing an application or file of some type. One was Note++, which looks like a great program, but it simply opened the file with file header, footer and control characters displayed. Windows Notepad or any text editor or word processor can do this. But after looking at the file closely I realized there is a very simple solution for non-techie kind of guys like me. Simply open the file in Microsoft Word, or any word processor/text editor that can do a search/replace with special characters. Highlight and delete the header and footer, leaving a string of text that includes your memo/note. Then in the search/replace function, type "=0D=0A" in the search box. In the replace box, choose the Special Characters button and click on "Manual Line Break." Then click on "Replace All." What you will have left is an unformatted file containing only your text, with line breaks where they are supposed to be. Obviously, "=0D=0A" is the VNT file code for a line break. This may not work for every Android phone, but I'm guessing that it will work at least for all Samsung phones and probably a lot of others. You would think that Android phones memo apps would have the ability to export to a format readable by Windows Notepad, at least. But lacking that, it turns out it's not really a big problem that requires fancy programming.

    Noothing extra is needed; just open vnt file in word in MSword.

    Then through MsWord menu "Tools" - go to section "Macros"
    then record macro. Do anything like pressing arrow key.
    Then stop the recording. Use Alt F8 key combination and edit
    created macro; the way it looks on MsWord97 is
    like:

    Now is to run the macro at opened vnt file and confirm all replacements

    That is all the problem of course it does not convert special characters.

    How about you just copy the text in the note to an email.

    Make sure you are "editing" the note, press and hold a while anywhere on the text, then "select all" or something similar, then press one of the selecting thingies to choose copy or cut.
    Write an email to yourself, press and hold in the message body to "paste".

    tada. No decoding, programming or whatever necessary.

    For simple minds like mine, try a non-technical solution:
    On your phone: copy all the text to clipboard. Paste as message into an e-mail program on your phone. Send e-mail to yourself and open it on your computer.

    I just came across this problem, and, while I appreciate all the work that people have done writing convertor programs to run on their PCs - isn't is kind of screwy? Do I expect everyone I send e-mails to to have a convertor program? I mean surely the solution has to be to convert the .vnt file into a readable form on the Android- it should just drop the plain-text content of the memo into the e-mail text body.
    Time for a killer app?

    ^^^ THIS. Works perfectly. :D

    I went through the thread, tried several solutions, and this is the easiest for someone just trying to accomplish the task at hand..

    Python? Yeah, heard of it.. OK, so I tried to wade through the wiki, and then tried to install - too much software, I don't care, and will never use it again. So instead of spending 30 mins on some TL;DR, I'm writing this post in a fraction of the time.

    limelect's app works -- THANKS!

    I tried the macro in word, and the link Lim Electronics Main
    BUt I got neither working. Then I run into the simple solution. My mobile took about 15 secs to copy the text into the mail, but it works! Thanks, also to the people whose solution I didn't get to work. Probably me... :confused:

    could you tell me why my program dose not work
    in your case since i got mail that thanks me.
    It will be nice to know so i will fix your problem.

    My program takes a vnt file edit it and return it as VNT file.

    There is an online site that converts Vnote / VNT content into plain text.
    The advantage is you don't have to install or run on your computer. It just runs on the browser.

    The site is:
    https://sites.google.com/site/vnotetotextconverter/

    Hi,

    as many others in here I sifted through all the solutions to this peculiar problem and has only found one that works for me with ease and minimum effort: Limelect's VntReader (thanks, by the way).

    Simply hit the exe.file and the program opens. Then via the Files menu choose Open and select the vnt file you wish to see and bang there it is.

    Only thing is that it seems to leave out the first letter of the memo. For instance if I have a memo saying "buy milk" the VntReader would show "uy milk"...

    This error is of course minor compared to other solutions where you are required to install other software or have to put up with incompatible software.

    The google site that cchee recommends is also fine except that it displays the same wrong characters as many other editors when it comes to the Danish letters

    Certainly, the Limelect simple program is great! It really does the job!

    I have another problem... I had written notes on a Samsung Galaxy Y cell phone (with the "Note" program that it brings). Since I got a different cell, I put the Notes on a zip file and sent it to the new phone via Bluetooth. My new phone is a Samsung Galaxy S3... and it cannot read the files that I wrote on the former cell. :confused:

    I was able to send the notes to the computer, but I need them on the cell phone. Since they are many (more than 100), it would take too much time to process them 1 by 1.

    Any ideas? :rolleyes:

    The programa that the S3 has was not useful for me (S Note) since it has a too short limit for the size of the files, half of the "note" program or even less. The program that I am using and I have found great is "Note Everything " that I got from the Play Store.

    Thanks for any help!! :eek:
