Sync troubles with shared notebook

Discussion in 'Microsoft OneNote' started by Robyn H, Apr 1, 2010.

    We are attempting to setup a shared notebook on a network share that a
    number of us have full access to.

    I have Windows 7 64bit, Office 2007 64bit
    My co-workers have Windows XP 32 bit, Office 2007 32 bit

    I have setup the notebook on the network share (K:) but when one of my
    co-workers opens it it goes into syncing la la land.

    If she adds sections and pages, I can see them with no trouble. If I
    add anything to her stuff, she can't see them.

    If I add sections, she can see the section name but not any of the
    pages. The error she gets is "waiting to sync this section - another
    OneNote program created it but hasnot yet uploaded the content".
    Doesn't matter how long we wait.

    Has anyone else run across this error?

    TIA

    I wouldn't be surprised to hear that a 64-Bit ON doesn't work with a
    32-Bit ON ...
    Could you use the 32-Bit version for a test on your 64-Bit Win 7 ?

    A 64 bit version of OneNote will work with a 32 bit version of OneNote (and
    in fact, each client has no idea what version the other clients sharing the
    notebook are).

    What type of server is used as the K: drive?

    It's a Novell server - I'll get the details and repost.

    FYI - it's just decided to work all on it's own! Very strange.

    Thanks everyone!
