    Skydrive application crashes in Mac Mountain Lion

    Installed the Skydrive application in my Mac which I thought will work fine without any issues but now whenever I try to run the application it just immediately crashes and I am unable to do anything to fix it. Why is that? Is it now supported in Mountain Lion or so?

    Dear Friend...

    The problem is might be related to the corrupt setup which you were downloaded some of the website which is not genuine.
    An skydrive set-up must have all the files and if any of the files is missing from its set-up, it definitely crashes.
    To fix this issue, you must refer some of the authentic website like softpedia, cnet, etc... These websites have almost all the software's and drivers for all kind of OS and Windows.

    If you face this issue, then I am giving you a link which helps you to download its original set-up from the website,

    This is the official link for download the skydrive set-up which is around 5 MB.
    When the download begins, save and install in your device and you will not any further issue now.

    Thank you..

    1. First restart the Mac devcie so that the all service begin again correctly.

    2. Now launch the skydrive apps and check again it is crashing.

    3. If it is then run the skydrive program as a admistrator.

    4. By doing this the apps begin with safe mode.

    5. If after that again see the same issue then uninstall the skydrive apps and is
    folder from the Mac.

    6. And again install the new setup with compatible mode and check it is working

    Hello Sir,

    I think that you are facing the current problem in to your device due to the fact that you have not updated your apps since long time.

    SO my suggestion to you is that you simply have to download a latest version of the sky drive apps in to your device.

    Once you got the complete download then tap on the install.

    After that you have to follow the screen instructions for completing the installation process.

    Also your problem may be due to the some virus attack in to your device.

    So my suggestion to you is that you simply have to scan your device with a good antivirus.

    Never forgot to clear the scanning report from your device/

    Also clear all the cache from your device.

    I am sure that after doing the above you got the solution to your problem.

    That's all.

    Thank you.
