OneNote PowerShell provider

Posted by: | June 22, 2011 | 2 Comments |

One sad casualty of my move to Windows 7 and Office 2010 is the OneNote PowerShell provider. http://bdewey.com/2007/07/18/onenote-powershell-provider/

It doesn’t work vey well in this scenario. It will read oneNote pages but it doesn’t want to create, modify pages or content.

Shame but this is one piece of functionality I will have to drop

If anyone comes across an update to the provider or an alternative I appreciate a comment being left.

The OneNote API is not pretty as it means working directly with XML – yuck.

under: Office 2010, PowerShellV2, Windows 7

    You CAN add data to onenote 2010 on Windows 7 – just choose an existing notebook in 2007 format (this is an option). Once you do that, it (sort of) works. as long as you write to pages/sections that already exist. I’ve been unable to create named pages – they just default to ‘Untitiled’.

    I agree – there are bits and pieces of the provider that do work but overall it needs to be re-written for Office 2010 which I see no sign of happening
