This question already has an answer here:
I have the following setup:
Windows 8.1 on PC at Work. I use a local account.
My personal/private hotmail address, with all my personal data in Skydrive.
In Windows 8, I used to be able to have the Skydrive/Onedrive desktop app running, and connect it to my personal hotmail address. I could access, edit and sync my skydrive files at work: great!
Now upgraded to 8.1, it seems it is no longer possible? I installed the desktop app, but it cannot be opened?
As said here, it is all baked in: SkyDrive desktop app with Windows 8.1
Now, this is very annoying, obviously: I can no longer access my files!
Is there any solution to this?
