Find Pages allways pagetag(0)


First thanks for the great tool.

The Function Find Pages does not show any pages. It shows allways tagname(0), please see attachment.

I think it must be a problem with the search engine (FindPagesByMetadata).

I hope you can help me.

Thanks in advance

HI zuhause,

thank for reporting this issue.

Very good catch! you are right, this function no longer works. FindPagesByMetadata uses the FindMeta method of the OneNote COM API. One of the recent Windows updates (especially the Windows 10 creators update) broke the integration of OneNote 2016 with the Windows Search Service (aka Windows Desktop Search). As a result the OneNote API methods FindMeta and FindPages no longer return any results.

I've uploaded a bugfix version (3.1) which uses an alternative method for finding tagged pages. Full text search, however, is broken until Microsoft fixes the bug. (I've reported the bug already)

Hope that helps,
