Install OneDrive (and soon Teams) on Local Machine

One of the most requested features for OneDrive and Teams have been to install the programs the local machine instead of in the profile for each user. Microsoft have finally released a OneDrive client to support this. As of version 19.043.0304.0003 OneDrive can be installed to the local machine by installing it with the below handle.

 

 

This makes a huge difference in a multi-user (Virtual Apps and Desktops) environment. If you wanted to use OneDrive before, you had to install the OneDrive client to all users profile. However, this can be very time consuming. Especially if something goes wrong with the installation and/or program files that’s stored in each users profile.

 

It seems that Microsoft have finally caved for the community. Christiaan Brinkhoff on twitter also states that a Teams per-machine is in progress.

 

 

This will be a very welcomed change for us that are passionate about multi-user environments.
