iCloud and Windows Vista

Recommended Posts

I installed iCloud on my Windows Vista PC and activated Photo Stream. It worked fine.Then I hit a problem updating to the latest version of iTunes that corrupted the application so I uninstalled both iTunes and iCloud and re-installed them. iTunes is now ok. iCloud appears to be ok but obviously isn't because double clicking on its icon in Control Panel doesn't open the iCloud panel and no further photos have been pushed down from the cloud. I've tried uninstalling it and reinstalling it a couple of times but the result is the same - the iCloud Control Panel looks like it is trying to start to open but gives up within a second.

Any suggestions will be gratefully received.

Spookily enough, the problem cured itself without any intervention. Just for the fun of it, I tried opening iCloud on my PC by clicking the shortcut on my desktop one more time. The iCloud Control Panel opened,and the iCloud icon re-appeared in the dock, and new photos from photostream were added. I needed to use Task Manager to close the iCloud Control Panel but otherwise everything appears to work fine.

      Hi. I have been trying to set up icloud since installing the iOS 5 update on my iPad but - everytime I do - I get an error that the account can't be verified. It instructs me to check my e-mail for instructions on how to verify my account. Unfortunately, I never get the e-mail in my AOL inbox that supplies those instructions.
      FYI: There is a chance I have more than one Apple ID and the old one is NOT in the form of an e-mail address. Could that have something to do with it?
      I have looked at my accounts (and Apple IDs) I currently use on both my iPad and my iPhone and they are the same and the passwords are valid.

      Any ideas of how to solve this would be greatly appreciated.
      Thanks!
      Kathy
