Windows 7: OneDrive won't launch

Windows 7 Ultimate x64
OneDrive won't launch


i am running on Win7 Ultimate x64 and i am trying to install OneDrive client on my PC. So i have downloaded software, then i have run that, it said installing and when progress bar was at the end then installation window (app) has crashed with no error. I have looked at start menu if there is an entry for onedrive and there is actually. If i try to run it then nothing happens. I have also tried differend compatibility modes and running as admin but with no luck. Then i have tried to uninstall antivirus Avira but it also did not help. Does anybody have a clue what it could be?

Thank you.

This probably won't help the OP, but for anyone else looking, if you have a computer in a corporate environment, you may have a registry key disabling OneDrive sync. Deleting this registry key allows OneDrive to install and run properly.
