    Just of today Í'm not able to start the Sky Drive app from the start screen anymore and auto sync is not working. Starting the the skydrive app will display: there's an issue opening the location.

    The app is only working if I logon on with administrator-rights :mad:

    Is it due to the latest windows-updates?
    Why is it on all the (vm)machines within my domain (did not change any group policies lately)?
    And never ever had this issue before....

    Any suggestions?

    thats why SkyDrive is the first thing to get disabled when I install Windows 8.1. unreliable piece of crap.

    You can not uninstall/install Sky Drive because it is OTB Windows 8.1.
