Not working on Windows 8.1


Microsoft has integrated SkyDrive more deeply into the core OS with the Windows 8.1 and there is no need to use the separate desktop app. And there is no way to change the local folder, because SkyDrive folder is now system folder. When I install SkyShellEx nothing happens - there is no SkyShellEx options in the context menu.

im having the exact same issue, except im on regular windows 8 home. I installed, rebooted, and i do not see the skydrive context icon to sync to my skydrive.

Yanko, from the screenshot I can see you just tried right click on folders that already part of SkyDrive. Is that right? Have you tried on external folders? If yes, then it's really hard to tell why it doesn't work. I guess I have to write a diagnostic program for those cases.

bitdisaster, yes I have tried several folder - and of course folders outside of SkyDrive
For example

I have installed SkyDrive desktop app and SkyShellEx app on both OS and here is the difference:

Windows 8 - folder on the Desktop

Windows 8.1 - folder on the Desktop

I'll be very glad if this issue can be fixed, because SkyShellEx is very powerful.

No, no update for 8.1 planned. The integration of SkyDrive into 8.1 make it impossible to get SSX working.
