Haven't really found a satisfying solution to this problem.
I have Windows 10 Home x64.
I have Google Drive, and Drive File Stream installed and syncing my drive. Most files are online until I interact with them, and it downloads them locally (pretty standard).
When I double-click on an
.exe file, Windows BSOD straight away.
When I right-click the file and choose: Drive File Stream > 'Available offline'
then double-click, it also BSOD.
I have tried completely removing DFS from Windows and reinstalling.
I have used it on two Windows installs now, with the same result.
Tried taking this up with Google, who said that it is not supported to run executables from DFS, and suggested using Backup and Sync instead.
I haven't tried that yet, but I feel like it's going backwards. They said that it is not a bug with Drive File Stream, but with Windows.
If I take this problem to Microsoft, they'll simply blame Google.
Does anyone have any ideas?
Thanks in advance!
