    I have OneNotes 2007 installed at work on Windows 7 and text recognition
    works. I have it installed at home (non-commercial) on Windows 7 and I do
    not get text recognition. Both are SP2. But they look different. Does text
    recognition not work in the non-commercial version? This is the only thing
    that make OneNote worthwhile as a tool for me.

    No, the text recognition features are the same in both versions.

    What isn't recognizing? Ink or text in images or ?

    In my home version, it does not recognize my handwriting with a pen.
    It gives me a "convert handwriting to text" option but does not do anything.
    The interface also seems different from work. At work, I simply place my
    mouse over the word and right click and I get word options. I can also
    simply search the document and get matches for handwritten words. My version
    at home does none of this. It has a specific menu pick to do the conversion.
    It is almost like the Onenote versions are different, but they both identify
    themselves as Onenote 2007 SP2. I'm perplexed.

    There are no different versions of OneNote.

    Check the setting for text recognition in "Tools | Options | Other".
