If SkyDrive for Mac stopped working after you upgraded to OS X 10.8 Mountain Lion, this is what to do:
The problem is now solved with OS X Mountain Lion v10.8.1 Update. (HT5418)
Before we begin: You should only proceed if you know what you do. After Microsoft has released an update for SkyDrive undo this changes. You should trust all other applications you have installed on your system, because by changing the following settings they theoretically are able the access your SkyDrive cached credentials!
Change the properties in the SkyDrive’s cached credential item to allow access from all apps:
- Launch “Keychain Access” from /Applications/Utilities
- Select the login keychain from the list
- Locate the “SkyDrive Cached Credential” item and select it
- Go to “File/Get Info” (Command + I)
- Go to “Access Control” tab
- Click to select “Allow all applications to access this item”
- Click “Save Changes”
NOTE: The “SkyDrive Cached Credential” item is created after you sign-in for the first time.
Otherwise you’ll get an error message like this: “Problems accessing your keychain” / “Beim Zugriff auf Ihre Schlüsselsammlung ist ein Problem aufgetreten.”
Microsoft is aware of the problem and working on a fix!
With SkyDrive for Mac Version 16.4 (16.4.6007.0724) the problem still seems to exist.
Instead of granting access for all applications it should also work if you grant dedicated access for the SkyDrive program only. (see screenshot)
