View Full Version : OneNote SP1 is now available
07-27-2004, 04:34 AM
Microsoft has released a number of Office 2003 updates today. The most exciting (well, for me anyway) is the release of OneNote SP1. There are also Service Pack 1 releases for the Office 2003 Suite, Visio 2003, and Project 2003.
Interestingly, Microsoft is offering two different downloads for each SP1 release - a full installer (big) and a special installer for those who have their original installation CD at hand (much smaller).
Go to the Office Update web site to determine which updates are available for your system.

Two Power Toys for OneNote SP1 have been posted.
IE to OneNote (http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details.aspx?familyid=a9872a17-2d0c-47f0-9b4d-026e94a8ef1c&displaylang=en): Use the Send to OneNote from Internet Explorer PowerToy to send the contents of a Web page from Microsoft Internet Explorer to a new page in Microsoft Office OneNote 2003 Service Pack 1 (SP1) with the click of a button.
Outlook to OneNote (http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details.aspx?familyid=87c661e3-178d-46f0-979e-0fdd96327928&displaylang=en): Use the Send to OneNote from Outlook PowerToy to send e-mail messages to a Microsoft Office OneNote 2003 Service Pack 1 (SP1) page from Microsoft Office Outlook 2003 with the click of a button.
They should also be available here shortly (this page is supposed to be working Real Soon Now):

I was able to install the IE to OneNote tool, but had problems with the Outlook to OneNote tool. I downloaded and ran the .exe file with no apparent problems, but when I ran Outlook after that, the Windows installer runs, and asks for a file called "Send to OneNote from Outlook.msi," which I can't find anywhere. Any suggestions?
Also, it just occurred to me that I'm installing both tools on my laptop (at the moment), and I believe I'm running Outlook 2002 on the laptop -- is Outlook 2003 required for this tool? Maybe that's the problem. Rats.
Well, I have Outlook 2003 somewhere, so I may have to upgrade . . .

Randy, I have the same problem on my laptop. I have Outlook2003 running, .NET 1.1, but I didn't have the .NET Programmability Support installed for Outlook. Once I did that, when I get the error about the .msi file I clicked OK anyway. It errors out again so I cancelled the installation and now I have the toolbar and functionality for sending emails to OneNote. Very nice. They do have to fix the install though.

There have been a number of reports about problems with the OneNote to Outlook installer. I had exactly the same experience on my system. But, after canceling my way out of the installer, the add-in works fine.

Well, I tried installing the Outlook to OneNote powertoy on my home desktop computer, with no luck. I'm running Outlook 2003 at home, and have the .NET 1.1 installed. I run the installer, then open Outlook and the installer runs again. It asks for the OneNote from Outlook .msi file, and I cancel out (several times), and still never see the toolbar others have mentioned, or any other indication the installation succeeded.
Any more suggestions?

And the Internet Explorer to OneNote tool isn't working for me either! I click on the button in the toolbar, and get a message box telling me something like "Sorry. Unable to create the page . . . Destination section may be read only or there may be some other reason." I've fiddled a bunch with the limited settings, and nothing changes that result.
Any help on this?

OK, I've got the Internet Explorer powertoy working properly now, but still can't get the Outlook powertoy installed/working.

It's a silly problem... they could fit it in 5 minutes, but here is a work around:
Use an archive extractor such as WinZip and extract the .msi file. Then, point the installer there. Should work like a charm. :wink:
