OneDrive for Business | April Update (engl)

OneDrive for Business, Microsoft

Microsoft has released on 4/5/2016 an Update for the OneDrive for Business Sync-Client (Groove.exe)


Fixes the following issues:

  • If a SharePoint 2016 on-premises OneDrive for Business library is being synchronized, the local folder is created under the SharePoint parent and the right-click menu share action doesn’t work as expected. After you install this update, the library will no longer be created under a SharePoint parent and you can share files from the locally synched folder.
  • After you restore the synchronization in OneDrive for Business, the repair feature may not work as expected.

Be aware that the update in Download Center applies to Microsoft Installer (.msi)-based edition of Office 2013. It doesn’t apply to the Office 2013 Click-to-Run editions such as Microsoft Office 365 Home

To determine whether your Office installation is Click-to-Run or MSI-based, follow these steps:

    1. Open an Office 2013 application, such as Microsoft Word 2013.
    2. On the File menu, select Account.
    3. For Office 2013 Click-to-Run installations, an Update Options item is displayed. For MSI-based installations, the Update Options item isn’t displayed.

    After the Update it should be shown Version 15.0.4815.1000 or higher
