    Is anyone else having issues installing Skydrive for Lion? I get past account authentication...but then it just sits there saying that it's loading. I waited like 15 minutes before I gave up.

    Tried restarting my Macbook Pro, re-downloading, and reinstalling. Same thing.

    Any ideas?

    Thanks!

    Worked fine for me with 10.7.3 - took a while to sync all the stuff down to my iMac, but it worked fine. Not much help I know...

    If you look at Activity Monitor is it using any CPU cycles while it "just sits" there loading?

    Also, still looking in Activity Monitor, do you have unexplained network activity? i.e. activity that could be due to Skydrive syncing?

    Nothing Happens

    I get the same. It acts like it is loading - but the Skydrive Folder is not created and the app eventually just quits.

    Any insights?

    Here's what the console has to say:
    4/26/12 4:12:49.485 PM com.apple.launchd.peruser.501: ([0x0-0xb20b2].com.microsoft.skydrive[6402]) posix_spawn("/Applications/SkyDrive.app/Contents/MacOS/SkyDrive", ...): Operation not permitted
    4/26/12 4:12:49.502 PM com.apple.launchd.peruser.501: ([0x0-0xb20b2].com.microsoft.skydrive[6402]) Exited with code: 1

    As suggested above, I re-downloaded and unpacked the zip file with a different application. Shazzam! It worked.

    Unzip Skydrive.exe

    What program was used to unzip the skydrive.zip. I have the same issue and have tried three separate unzip programs.

    The setup does not create the folder drive similar to the previous posts.

    Thank you.
