Installing OneNote 12 Beta

The times they are a-changin’.

This post seems to be older than 18 years—a long time on the internet. It might be outdated.

I’ve downloaded Microsoft Office OneNote 12 Beta 1 [pre-release], but I still haven’t received my Welcome Message email that contains the all important Product Key.

So I though I’d mess around with the Enter Product Key Screen. Of things to note:
OneNote 12 Install
The following characters are not valid:

  • 0 (zero)
  • 1 (one)
  • 5 (five)
  • e
  • u
  • i
  • o
  • a
  • s
  • L
  • z (zee)
  • n

Most of these make sense, 0/O (zero/oh), 1//I (one/uppercase i/lowercase L), and 5/S (five/ess).
Here’s what I don’t get, why void all the vowels? Or is that just a coincidence? I would think that 2/Z (two/zee) would also be void, but only Z (zee) is. And “N”?

Update (~5 mintues later): After doing some more searching, Hellman109 from writes: “BTW, no one has product keys yet (they arent released) so although the download is half done it may take 24 hours to get them.”
