I was using OneNote 2016 without any issues in my previous company laptop. I got a new laptop with windows 7 and office 2013 installed. I have installed OneNote 2016, however, when I click on OneNote icon, I am asked to log into cloud. When I click on "sign-in", I get a office-365 login scree. But, I only have hotmail account and I do not have office 365 account. I am totally stuck because I have stored all the onenote notes in Skydrive. Is there any way to skip this logon screen or is there a way to use skydrive instead of office-365?
I solved my problem using registering these keys. You need to save the below text as .reg file and apply it.
Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00 [HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Policies\Microsoft\Office\16.0\OneNote\WebServiceProvider] "DisableSkydriveSetupOnFirstBoot"=dword:00000001 [HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Policies\Microsoft\Office\Common\WebIntegration] "WebIntegrationEnabled"=dword:00000000
Add the following DWORD value in the registry before running OneNote:
Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00 [HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Office\16.0\OneNote] "FirstBootStatus"=dword:01000101 [HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Office\16.0\OneNote\Options] "BootClippingPanelWithOneNote"=dword:00000000
*For OneNote 2013 change the 16.0 to 15.0
