I am hoping that the search engines will pick up this string for Send to OneNote 64bit, OneNote print driver x86, 64-bit OneNote Print to OneNote. I got the following email from someone:
I happened across your OneNote blog and thought you might be a good person to contact. I’ve discovered that you don’t get the “Print to OneNote” feature on 64-bit Vista… I did some web searching to try to find out more information, but mostly just found a bunch of annoyed users…
Do you know if this issue is going to be fixed anytime soon?
Well first of all the Send to OneNote 2007 print driver is currently not available on any of the 64-bit OSes. You can read about it in this KB article: The Microsoft Office Document Image Writer printer driver in Word 2007 and in OneNote 2007 is not installed on a computer that is running a 64-bit operating system. Pretty much the Microsoft Office Document Imaging tools are not available on 64-bit and therefore the Send to OneNote print driver isn’t available.
As for the second part of the question, the more important issue. We are fully aware of the issue and we are looking to address this in a future release. Note: anything I mention on here can changed so just note that caveat, no promises. In the meantime if you really need this feature it is recommended that you run x86 and sorry for the inconvenience.
Update on 2008-04-23: David wrote more about this here: OneNote 64 bit print driver. Short story is that we will not have an update for OneNote 2007 to support the 64bit print driver and we are working on a solution for the next release of OneNote. More details after the fold: OneNote 64 bit print driver.
Update on 2009-05-05: David seems to have fixed this, detail here: OneNote Print Driver – A 64 Bit Solution, check it out!
