Y OneNote Trial Version Not Work?

Discussion in 'Tablet PC' started by Joseph di Piazza, Sep 11, 2004.

  1. Folks,
    1. After downloading the trial version of OneNote, I clicked on it, only to
    find the ominous msg: "OneNote.exe is not a valid Windows 32 application."
    2. Was not OneNote to be useable even with a mouse on an XP notebook?
    Indeed, I want to try it out there while I get hardware fixes on my Tablet.
    3. The size of the download turned out to be only 64 megabytes, when I
    believe it was supposed to be much larger. Is the problem that many bytes
    were lost in the download ( I was forced to use a dial-up download, where
    poor or incomplete downloads often occur). [ Oh, next time I could try a
    T-Mobile hotspot with T1 speeds; 4. but will I have to delete the old
    download first since the new one may detect it and complain that I am trying
    to get a 2nd 60-day free trial. I am already 15 days into the trial, for
    which I had to tell my life story. There was no report in "Add or Remove
    Programs" in Control Panel of the presence of OneNote, so I cannot uninstall
    the download properly: 5. will this lack of an uninstall mechanism lead to
    problems now or down the line?]
    Whatever tips you all can offer, I'll appreciate greatly. 6. Should not a
    dial-up download work ?

    Joe, you should post your issues to the microsoft.public.onenote newsgroup.
    Before you do, take a look around previous posts and do a little search. I
    seem to recall a solution for this issue being posted.

  3. The cause is probably a corrupted download. I had the same thing happen.
    Re-downloading resolved it.

    It *does* sound like a corrupted download, but you will want to clear your
    cache in IE before trying again or else you will just end up trying the same
    corrupted download.

    In IE - Tools / Internet Options / Temporary Internet Files / Delete Files
