I have installed Office 2016, got it activated and running Word, Excel and Outlook. OneNote does not work. I get the following error when launching:

"You'll need to install the Desktop Experience before you start OneNote. Here's how: Open the Control Panel, go to Programs and Features, and click Turn Windows Features on or off."

Hmmm... thats unusual.  Thats generally the error you get when you attempt to install OneNote on a Windows Server installation without the desktop experience installed.  I've not heard whether OneNote is actually usable in terms of "Office 2016 compatibility", would be interesting to see if it is.

OneNote should also have a web client if that helps (if you have a Office 365 account)

I get the same error over here. Everything else does though, as you mention.

Same error when running on Mint 18.3. There is anything to try that can make it work?

So onenote is not available in the crossover?
But that is what i only want, when not, i wouldnot buy that.

Ok I figured it out myself (with some help of other entries). I just installed version 18.5 and now everything works

Hello all,

As Michael notes, CrossOver 18.5 resolves the Desktop Experience error and offers preliminary support for OneNote 2016 on Linux. OneDrive integration is still unsupported, but a feature we hope to explore next.

If you'd like to give OneNote a try on CrossOver 18.5, you can download our two-week free trial here: https://www.codeweavers.com/products/crossover-linux/download

Please note that our forums are primarily community-driven and are not the best source for technical support from CodeWeavers staff. If you'd like more direct support you can contact us here.
