  • ​Receiving error when attempting to open OneNote 2010

    after recent Windows updates:

    Have deleted all temp files. Have tried uninstalling and reinstalling Office 2010. Able to access the two notebooks I published to the Web via Windows Live.

    Any assistance would be appreciated, I use OneNote frequently.

    Whats the error?

    Does it start in safe mode?

      1. Start-->Run, and type: onenote.exe /forcerepair "filepath" where filepath (in quotes!) is the full path to the file that is corrupted. You can get this path by hovering the mouse over the section tab in OneNote. It's probably something like, "C:\Documents and Settings\your-name\My Documents\OneNote Notebooks\notebook-name\"
      2. In OneNote, go to File-->Info-->Open Backups, and open the latest backup. If the file looks fine, you can drag it into your notebook and delete the corrupt file.
