Onenote trying to open when connect to a remote Terminal Server

  1. When we try to use RDP to connect to a Windows 2003 Standard Edition Terminal Server we get a message that pops up saying One Note cannot open a file we selected to print out. We never setup One Note to do this and have no idea what file it is referring to .

    It appears that it is the One Note on our Windows 7 Pro remote computers that is creating the message windows not on the Terminal Server.

    It happens from multiple remote Windows 7 Pro computers. It does not happen from these same computers when we RDP to other Terminal Servers.

    Also we never use One Note on any computers.

    Any ideas what to look for on the problem TS?

    Suggest you see the wiki on Onenote for insight where it may be active.

    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.
