    Google Drive App on Windows 8.1 not working

    I tried uninstalling, reinstalling to no avail. Since the update to Windows 8.1, the Google Drive software stopped syncing and there is no icon in the InfoBar. I'm fairly sure it doesn't run at all.

    Anyone else with this issue? Is there a solution?

    Google Drive is working for me and it has an icon in the taskbar notification area.

    I don't have an app however, it is a desktop program. The only apps I could find (from the store on the phone interface) are from third parties, not google.

    I had this problem someday but I can't remember if the problem was related to temporary files or Microsoft Installer...
    Anyway, I formated my PC and reinstalled Google Drive.
    But... since I saw the movie "Terms And Conditions May Apply" (about privacy on internet), I uninstalled Google drive and deleted all my files from Google Drive.

    Good luck

    I tried the latest version and it is now working for me too :-)

    edit: I should have written "app". I meant the desktop software.
