in onenote 2010, you could launch this little app by clicking "Add-Ins" -> "Export Web View icon" which is on Toolbar commands.

I've the same issue reported by AaronLS. Other pages for this addon indicate that I should see a globe icon to launch this but I don't see that in OneNote 2010. I see the command line also in program files but it does not launch this UI.

Anyone know how to get this plugin working on Windows 7 with OneNote 2010?

This documentation is missing an important step, the very first step of how to run the application. There is no shortcut in the start menu, the cwebber.exe application installed under Program Files doesn't do anything but run a command prompt program, and there is no new options in OneNote that I can see to run this. So how do we run this program? The above guide just shows us how to us the exporter once it is running, but how do we even get to that first step.
