Luminotes is Closing; Download the Windows Stand-Alone Application

It’s a sad moment for the techie world and wiki fans. The hosted service of Luminotes is closing, and you can access, export, and backup your notes from their servers until March 1, 2010 only.

According to their blog: will shut down on March 1, 2010. At that time, you will no longer be able to view or edit any notes hosted at, and no further releases nor support for any Luminotes products will be available.

But of course their Windows Stand-Alone Applications — Luminotes Desktop — is out in the wild. In case the website totally shuts down after the time (March 1) and you missed to save yourself a copy of the exe file, I have a backup copy: Luminotes.exe (download). Readme file is available upon install.


  1. “I have a backup copy”

    Oh thank-you thank-you thank-you thank-you thank-you thank-you thank-you …

    Luminotes is pretty unique. Another user and I are thinking about putting up a community Google Group for people trying to run Luminotes on their server. Is this of interest to you?

    • @Oliver, yeah, I’m interested in running Luminotes in my own server. But how? I mean is it possible to install it in a shared hosting environment?

  2. Thank you for the .exe; I had it before on another computer, but not on my new one. I missed it. I’m holding on to this file for dear life.
