    If you're not running the EN-US version of Windows you won't see the 64-bit About box, this has been confirmed by Microsoft. If it's 64-bit in Task Manager then you're running 64-bit version
    yeah, just read the earlier posts, should've read earlier before asking/posting, thanks for the heads up.

    No problem. I was concerned at first with it not showing 64-bit in the About box, but all is fine.

    For crying out loud, why can they not make up their minds at MS, where to put OneDrive?
    As if it were not bad enough, I have to change firewall rules every time store apps update.

    I had rules for x86 version, then it updated to x64. I reinstalled Windows, it was back to x86.
    OK, I uninstalled x86 and installed x64, except it installed in Appdata not in ProgramFiles, omg.

    You might already be aware of this, but others might find it helpful to know how and why they get installed in two different places and it has to do with this /allusers switch on 'OneDriveSetup.exe'.

    https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/one...e-installation

    "Run "OneDriveSetup.exe /allusers" from a command prompt window (will result in a UAC prompt) or by using Microsoft Endpoint Configuration Manager. This will install the sync app under the "Program Files (x86)\Microsoft OneDrive" directory. When setup completes, OneDrive will start. If accounts were added on the computer, they'll be migrated automatically."


    In my case I found this out when I test drove the 'Personal Vault' option and OneDrive reinstalled itself from my preference ' of '...\AppData\' to 'Program Files' when it used this 'allusers' switch.

    Thank you, that did the trick.

    I've done a couple of Office Beta updates, and now have '64-bit' in the About tab on OneDrive, not sure when this was fixed but I noticed it this morning, EN-GB locale.

    Since switching to the 64bit client, I cannot log onto my Personal Vault, there is always an error with a typical cryptic Microsoft Error code. Using the online version there are no issues

    Glad to see you Right-side Ponders have that (x64) buggy-boo fixed! I remember that from day one of this "Experiment".
