Yeah, me too. That was why I was reading MS KB's. I normally don't get much from them.
Onedrive (as a valid resource) is still in flux. Most of it is rehashed SharePoint only worse.
They don't spell that out well.
I agree this is more an exercise is letting off some steam in the fast that this is exactly what the KB tells you to do.
A normal user is expected to open Regedit and go tooling around looking for a registry entry with NO idea how or what might happen if they "oops hit that space bar" before they exit.
Regedit needing no "Save"
Skwire requested a pm of the details so I did not post further back here but the fact the MS has two complete different PM's to tell someone how to update their client for Onedrive, with neither of them excluding the use of the other. And the one that tells you HOW to know if you need and Update as well as what to do if you need one is written such that I was ready to give up before I got through the 4th paragraph.
But ..I had to at least see if it was a private MS joke.
Apparently not. The need to Know is Real IF you have any intention of using Onedrive. If not. Then it isn't worth tie electrons it takes up in cyberspace.
Tanks 4wd. I realize that without the KB numbers to see what I am speaking of it doesn't make much sense. I really thought I posted the actual links to the MS KB's I meant to. Right now I am deep into another weird problem with a Wi-Fi thing.
Wouldn't surprise me if it wasn't related to MS as well!!
PS: For Skwire; If the post I sent also did not capture the links I can try again.
What you are offering is far more than I expected, even if they know the contents of that key, the best I can do is tell them
"If Skwire's gadget says you are an "008C" they click HERE and make the HERE be the link to the right update.
By the way, the updates themselves are 3 pages long as it appears when you finaly find the right one, you also then have to tell MS what LANGUAGE you speak just to get the correct update.
