    One Drive Program Wont Install on 8.1Pro


    hello

    I have just installed Win8.1pro and office 2013 - when I run the desktop installer for OneDriveSetup.exe it goes right to the end at stops and does nothing, registered as installed but does nothing?

    this is a new install of win8.1x64Pro on an EVO 850 SSD which shows good health/SMART

    can anyone help?

    thanks

    Hello Snadge,

    That's because OneDrive is already included and fully integrated in Windows 8.1.

    OneDrive Notification Icon - Add or Remove in Windows 8.1

    Was there anything specific you were wanting to do with OneDrive? I'll be happy to see what I can do to help.

    There is a OneDrive Icon in the notifications area. There is for me anyway. You may have to go into customize and set it to always show. When you click it there is a "Open One Drive in File Explorer" option. There should also be a tile in the All Aps screen you can Pin to the Start Screen or taskbar.

    The OneDrive notification icon will not be there if you don't sign in to Windows with a Microsoft account since OneDrive requires it.

    If you wish to stick with signing into Windows with a local account, then you could sign in to OneDrive online instead to upload and download files from if you like.

    OR

    You could sign in to the Store with your Microsoft account to have OneDrive available in your local account.

    Dropbox it

    Gmail (15G) kept causing issues though I may give it a whirl

    just I need access to rotas and spreadsheets at work online as I have evidence of strong underpayment across 5-7 colleagues
