OneDrive Broken: Not syncing; won't run

I have noticed that my OneDrive files are not syncing online lately. This is after upgrading to Windows 10 on my desktop. Not only that, I notice the OneDrive icon isn't in the bottom-right and it's not running. So, I try running it, I get this error:

Explorer.EXE
This file does not have a program associated with it for performing this action. Please install a program or, if one is already installed, create an association in the Default Programs control panel.


So, I can't click on the OneDrive shortcut in explorer in the left-side of the explorer window or I get this error and I can't run the program or else I get that error. Googling this in relation to OneDrive comes up flat.

This may also be related: When I go to Settings -> Accounts -> Your email and accounts It simply spins there never showing me anything.

What I have tried: Reboot, Look for updates. Copy a working OneDrive.exe from another Windows 10 machine. Running the OneDriveSetup.exe program. Trying to run OneDrive.exe /reset also does nothing.

The computer is Windows 10 Pro, it's joined to a domain and I'm attempting to use OneDrive personal. The OneDrive for Business is working just fine.

Unfortunately, no. I had a few other things wrong with my installation that I formatted and re-installed. Sorry, for me, I couldn't find a solution.

It sounds like it might be some type of access issue. Were you both signed in with a Microsoft account?

Can you open the OneDrive account if you go directly there?

Did you have your system set to Sync OneDrive?

Any firewalls or anti-virus other that Microsoft?

Edit: You might also check the Event Viewer to see if any error or warning messages show up around the time you try to access OneDrive.

I was not signed into the computer with a microsoft account, it was a domain account. I had my system set to sync. And I didn't have any firewalls/AV that could have conflicted. After rebuilding the computer, everything was working fine.

I did look at event viewer when I was debugging the problem and there were no issues that popped up.

Ultimately, I think it was related to the accounts on the machine, but I'll never know because I couldn't live with it any longer, I reformatted/reinstalled.
