OneDrive Desktop for Windows has had its share of problems since its release. Personally, I spent many an hour troubleshooting my own problems earlier this year. I wrote about those HERE and HERE. A subsequent update (in June, I think) seemed to fix my problem for good. But it seems Microsoft is having to continually address problems. Apparently, some users using unspecified versions are still experiencing issues.
A new update has been released to hopefully solve remaining problems. According the KB article:
Certain versions of the OneDrive desktop app for Windows cannot automatically update themselves in Windows 8.1.
And, the cause…
This problem occurs because of an incorrect registry key that is for self-update mechanism computers. It causes an AutoUpdater feature to crash.
The fix is now available for download for x64 and x86 versions of Windows 8.1, but requires that the infamous April Update be installed first.
